Our local cable company is running ads claiming that the satellite
providers "aggressively process" their signals, the assumption being
that this is somehow bad.

No mention of the mangling that the cable company performs on everything.

The HD I've seen from cable is inferior to that from the satellite, but
that may not be a general situation.
