The extra $$$ is to upgrade my subscription from "basic basic analog"
to the lowest tier digital service that has the channels I want back.
--  about $40/month extra, and yes, the FAQ says I get 1 STB and up to
two DTAs free, but the fourth will cost me around another $2/mo and if
I can't train the family to use MythTV exclusively, I'll need even
more DTAs, but then money can be a powerful motivating factor in
behavior modification ;-).
