[mythtv-users] To survive the switch to digital...

I have Comcast Cable with just basic channels + Discovery (they put a low 
pass filter on my line to block the rest of the basic cable channels and 
charge me much less $14.99/month) And I am currently using two PVR500 dual 
tuners so that my wife has 4 tuners to record various TV with.

I have no interest in messing with HD TV as we record most everything and 
don't really have the space.

I want to understand what I am up against with the switch to Digital. I 
was told (though I am not sure they understood) by comcast that I would 
get two boxes that do the conversions for me from their digital signal to 
something my tuners can handle.

Any advice on what I can read up on about what I will be getting into?
