TWC as well as other cable companies are changing over to "switched digital" service. I was talking to a local cable installer yesterday, I don't understand the entire process but here is my understanding as he stated. The current Bandwidth is going to be cleared up to allow for more HD content. The way they are going to do this is by something called "Switched Digital" Customers with Digital service and HD Service will see a change in the near future. Many cities have started the changeover already. What Happens is The BASIC,BASIC. is still available in analog. (about 25 or less channels) The Rest of the Channels are going to rely on a cable box. Instead of the Cable company sending all Channels to you 24/7 your cable box will talk directly to thier server and send you only the current channel the box is calling for.(more like your web browser that calls up a site(IP) address. You'll only get one "Browser" per Cable box. That's how they are clearing up bandwidth on the Cable, They can squeeze 5-10 digital channels in the same frequency that the current analog channels are using up. So your Cable that your Tuner card in your tv's and vcr's will be extremely limited in the near future. And will only recieve the worst of cable... the analog end and Extremely limited channels. Probably just your locals. If someone has a better technical description of how this Switched digital works please follow up.
