A few weeks ago, I noticed that some of my MythTV recordings were all static. Since I was having problems with the cable at that time, I didn't think much of it. Eventually, I realized it was because Comcast dropped Cartoon Network from their analog lineup
. And, even though I have a QAM tuner, they encrypted the digital version.
So, way to go Comcast. Since the inevitable endgame is that all non-broadcast stations will get encryption regardless of how much I pay, I'll stay on the lookout for internet service providers that don't bundle useless TV in the future.
