Hmm.. that's interesting. I wonder if Comcast was doing some type of
test run in my area, seeing as how it is now back to "normal". Could
be a sign of things to come. If they did the same thing in my area
that they did in yours with flipping the channels to unencrypted
digital feeds that wouldn't make me unhappy as I have both a pcHD3000
and an HDHR, which I actually prefer over the PVR-150.
