[mythtv-users] Comcast analog tuning problem

I have tried for a week to get the analog half of the HVR-1600 working with
Comcast.  Called comcast a few times once the rep promised a call back.
(Never happened).   Another time I sat on the line a half hour with a
Comcast rep who carried on a conversation with a coworker and my call
mysteriously disconnect.

Today I figured I tried Hauppuage tech support.  The rep said there is a
known issue with Comcast.  He said comcast is sending its clear QAM in a
frequency that Hauppagge cards don't recognize.  His mention of clear QAM
confused me.  I confirmed that I was talking about picking up Comcast on the
analog portion of the card.

He said they are working on Comcast and he expects a firmware upgrade at
some point to correct this.  Since some users do not have a problme with the
HVR-1600 and Comcast, I assume this is as others suggested a regional
Comcast problem.
