W00t!  Chicago Mythers :)

although i'm actually in the west burbs... :}
i switched from Comcast to WOW (Wide Open West) which may only be
available in the burbs at the moment.  they still offer analog
subscriptions but they really are pushing their digital service which
only cost a couple bucks more.  i have an HDHR that isn't really
functional at the moment.  when i first started playing with it it was
picking up the digital channels on WOW.  i had other tuning issues and
reverted back to my tried and true PVR-500 & 250.
i really need to get that HDHR working...
