I'm near the end of my rope looking for creative solutions to getting hd signals into my house. 1--I live in a region that has almost no over the air television. We get one nbc affiliate that just went digital and one pbs station. That is all there is and that is all there will ever be. 2--I live in the woods--I have had four satellite guys from both companies come out and all say that I have no hope of satellite signal. 3--My cable company will be the very last on earth to do anything with hd. Emerging from bankruptcy, they seem to have lost focus on the whole hd issue. AFter getting the runaround at the national office and the regional office, I finally talked to the local service manager who said they have not even talked about implementing it in my area. I don't know of anyone with this company(rhymes with Shmadelphia) in ANY market is getting hd--even though other companies within 90 miles of here are offering hd on cable out the yingyang(kudos especially to comcast). Rather than continue a rant--I have a question. My company uses the Scientific Atlanta boxes for digital cable. If I could somehow get my hands on a Scientific Atlanta 3100hd box--would it decode and deliver an hd signal to my set--or does that have to be arranged from the cable company "headend". Is it just a matter of the box or does the whole system have to be set up for it. I am reaching here--I think I am doomed to wait until my company, which will drag their feet as much as possible, starts delivering hd cable. In the meantime I am looking for any solution I can. At least the dvds and even the digital pay channels look great.
