And even if cable goes all-digital, your PVR-150 will still be useful  
for recording the NTSC signal from a cable box ... or the output of  
an HDTV downconverter, if those ever appear on the scene.  My guess  
is there will be stopgap options available for quite a while.   
Remember UHF "block converters" for non-cable-ready TVs?
