At this point the quality is a matter of compromise with price, currently Comcast only offers about 6 HD channels in my area (all of which are simulcast on non-HD), so I have no real incentive to pay the extra $$ for a HD box to add to the stack of boxes I already have.

I find the digital cable picture to be very sharp and more than adequate for what I want to do assuming that the quality doesn't drop exponentially when the Tivo records.

I had thought about the DirectTV approach but I just got rid of Dishnetwork and don't really want to do the satellite thing again. So assuming that the playback quality of the Tivo is acceptably high (not HD but close) then I'll be happy. I mean just a few months ago all I had was a $30 Wal-Mart VCR to watch. Worst case scenario, I'll buy this one and in time when the HD stuff gets cheaper I'll upgrade and move this unit to a different TV and use it to record regular TV shows (who needs SouthPark in HD?!?!?)..

Again thanks for the help! Keep it coming
