Re: [PLUG] -- Mostly-OT -- Mythbuntu & Comcast channels?

I ran into the same problem here in Philly and yes it's very annoying. My new TV does PiP but only between either a cable or and air source. So I either have to get 2 cable boxes(not out of the question), or get an external antenna and pick up DTV signals that way with the built in digital tuner. 

Personally for me the jury is still out with OTA DTV. Most folks don't realize you really need a different type of roof antenna to get really good reception. Preferably direction and adjustable. There could actually be money made selling and installing digital roof antennas if you don't mind heights.

Before with Analog TV at least you got something of a picture, with digital it's either there or it's not. I find the pixelization, and the dropping in and out of sound more vexing than the snow and the static.
