I'm sorry to say I don't no this answer so be gentle. I had Comcast before last November when I saw the light and switched to Direct. (Best thing I ever did) My question revolves around the National mandate that Feb '09 you must be digital. My TV's are not ancient. A couple maybe 12 years old. I have three Direct Receivers and 2 HDDVR's currently hooked up. Won't I be fine when '09 comes along???
