Of course they are. Honest marketing is an oxymoron. For me, as soon  
as I can't tune history, discovery, comedy central and cartoon network  
I'm going back to directv for my cable needs. Still got all my null  
modem to usb adapters in a bag waiting for the switch. (I used to live  
in the boonies, no cable, so I had 2 boxes setup and recording this way)
