[mythtv-users] Comcast just made things worse

We missed tonight's shows because Comcast:

1) moved all the OTA digital streams to new virtual channels, and
2) Removed the station and channel identifiers from most of those channels

When I called them to find out what was going on, I learned (at least,
according to the phone answerer I spoke with) that they're apparently going
to drop the OTA digital channels (to offer us more channels which will be
available ONLY with a digital set-top box), and we need to get antennas if
we want to receive local HD stations without using those extra-cost set-top

So tomorrow I have to test an antenna with one of our TVs to see if we can
get decent OTA HD signals here. If so, then I'll have to get more antennas
(or try a splitter with the single antenna) in order to get MythTV recording

And now we're looking more strongly at Dish or DirecTV.
