How did you 'notice' that Comcast was doing this?  Did a scan with 
tzap/azap or some like other tool? Id like to test to see if my cable co 
(brighthouse in tampa, fl) is doing this, as Ive had some difficulty 
getting all my local HD channels comming in over cable working with the 
HD3000. Ive been getting alot of PID not set msgs scrolling in the logs 
and want to fig this out (running SVN 8586)
