Funny... It seems that Comcast/Xfinity dropped half my clear QAM
channels a little over one microsecond after they won this judgement.
Anyone else notice this?
Maybe its not the FCC, but SOMEONE needs to get on Comcast for making
every single ATSC tuner in every TV and other device good for little
more than OTA signal.
Tempted to drop Comcast altogether and switch to MythTV/OTA recordings
and Hulu... that is until XfiniHuluCast-ondemand is no longer free and
no longer runs in a web browser.
