   The one really "bad" thing about digital is that you need separate 
tuners/tuner boxes for each channel viewed.  I have Comcast analog 
basic, plus Dish satellite (which is all-digital). Dish will rent, but 
not sell, dual-tuner receivers so you can record one channel and watch 
another; Comcast could do the same, if they chose.
