    Hi, I am purchasing this model (gulp! on the cost, but couldn't pass it up after doing a lot of research)

    I am still just a bit confused about the built in HD tuner. THe way I understand it based on reading posts is that with an antenna I can get CBS, NBC, ABC HD programming but not HBO, Discovery, ESPN, etc.. I have Comcast digital cable but do I need an additional piece of equipment to be able to receive any HD cable programming?

    If that is the case, does anyone have any recommendations on what to get?

    thanks

    If Comcast is broadcasting their HD in 8VSB format, all you do is connect the cable to the digital input and tune in the channels. If they are broadcasting in QAM or some other format, then you need their cable box.
