They dropped all direct to the TV connections. The only thing that worked was the sets with Comcast's set top boxes. I can't know if they will go to that system in your city but they did in my town. It does not matter if our sets had HD digital tuners. I can only guess you won't understand this is a simple money grab as you need a decoder from comcast for every box.
Comcast in my area is converting to all digital format and state we need to install a Digital Adapter. I have three LCD TVs one states it is digital ready the other two simply have a cable connection with no mention of digital or analog. They warn that without the DA I may lose some of my current channels. Once the DAs are installed Comcast wants to activate them, and state any TV without a DA will not function.
Does any of that make sense? Are my two TVs digital ready if they are LCD? I only subscribe to the very basic service.
Any guidance would be great. Uncle Dewey
