you might be forced to switch to digital. supposedly by 2009, standard analog cable is going bye bye.

I am not opposed to doing the over-the-air thing, but I have no HD TVs
and no immediate plans to get one.

Can I use the HDHomeRun with my Comcast setup?  Can I play it on a 10
year old non-HD TV with only coax and RCA inputs?

Another solution might be a TiVo Series 1 (and _TiVo Hacks_ :).

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Microsoft has single-handedly nullified Moore's Law.
Innate design flaws of Windows make a personal firewall, anti-virus
and anti-malware software mandatory. The resulting software arms race
has effectively flattened Moore's Law on hardware running Windows.
