Well in my brothers case, he didn't like seeing 40% of the picture missing. Before the analog shutoff he was using a couple of Hd DVRs from comcast so he could see the entire picture and it was also a better picture than what comcast broadcast over Sd.
In my girlfriends case she has a couple of TiVos, S3 models. She only uses OTA and has one SD set on a TiVo and one HD set on a TiVo. She also has another SD set but that is attached to an OTA STB and she has a little 7" and 11" set.
But anyway on the Sd set and TiVo she watches it in zoom mode which gives you a picture that fills the screen and looks just like it did when there was an analog broadcast, only better quality. And she has a couple of siblings that do the same thing with a FiOS HD DVR, and a Comcast HD DVR.
And I know a few people at work who also use an HD STB/DVR with an SD set.
