[mythtv-users] The demise of analog cable...

I heard that my cable company (Comcast), as well as most others, are in the
process of phasing out analog cable with the intent to support only digital
cable.  Since so may of us depend on PVR capture cards and analog cable, it
looks like we are pretty much screwed, unless I missed something.  Firewire
capture seems flaky at best, and when it does work, we are at the mercy of
the cable company to leave the content unencrypted.  There is always OTA HD
capture, but that just delivers a handful of channels.

Is the day coming when we will have to scrap our Myth boxes and use those
crappy DVRs provided by the cable companies?
