[mythtv-users] Can I get HD content from Comcast Basic Cable in W. Mass? Any other HD solutions under $40/mo?

I'm tired of paying Comcast for their digital cable as our bill is well 
over $120. I'll be switching back to basic cable as soon as I can 
provide my family with a Myth DVR solution. (installing FC7 now <g>)

I currently use a Comcast DVR (DCT-3416) and receive HD on about 8 
channels. I really want to keep HDTV. While I have a PVR-500 for analog 
(and a PVR-350 but that's headed to eBay), I'd much rather HD content 
for my 720p HDTV.

Does anyone know if Comcast in Western MA broadcasts the locals in HD on 
basic cable? Would a HDHR work to receive those channels?

Does anyone have any other solutions that may provide MythTV with HD 
content for under $40/mo?

I cannot spend $1000 via 16x9 for a modified DirectTV box. I can do a 
HDHR for $200. I'd greatly prefer a firewire solution as it's basically 

Thanks in advance,
