I live in Jersey City and also have Comcast. I use straight cable (no box)
to tune both analogue through pvr500 and now digital through HDHomeRun. I
just recently added HDHomeRun and following instructions for Ubuntu didn't
really have any problems with it. I switched to SD from zap2it couple of
days ago. No problems there either.

It's maybe obvious but one thing I would do is go to Mythweb channel lineup
and see how things look there.
