Cool! I was one of the early WinFirst digital cable subs a few years back and used to help with troubleshooting and testing in the inital rollout (and even then I was asking when they were going HD
). I later switched to Comcast, then Voom, now E* and might be coming back for TV (SW is my broadband provider). I'm guessing by now the frame-rate issue for the digital cable service has been fixed?
It actually makes sense to have OTA and the different providers split into separate threads. OTA threads deal with a variety of different tuner and antenna issues, Comcast threads cover the STB and DVR options/issues and there is a bit of crossover between the two if there is a problem (to see if it's a city-wide, provider or local household reception issue). If I end up back at SureWest I'll probably be in both threads as I'll be using both the SW STB and also a supplemental OTA tuner.
hearth- I'm not sure where the boundaries are (since like gtree10 mentions the old rollout map is gone) and I'm not that far from your area but if you call them they can tell you availability for your area, or you could try entering your zip code on the site to see what comes back.
