I recently bought HDTV TV set with built-in HDTV turner. I also have Comcast
Digital Cable Box. Do I need special Comcast HDTV Cable box to watch HDTV
channels or I can do it with regular box and built-in HDTV turner? I tried
to see those channels but they are not shown.

With Comcast you have 2 options. 1.) If your TV has a connection for
it, you can get the CableCard connection from Comcast...or a better
option is 2.) Call up Comcast and get the new Motorola Dual-Tuner DVR,
and you will be able to recieve all Local HDTV broadcasts (assuming you
live in a region that has this ability) and the Comcast HD channels.
For $9.99/month you will have the DVR and HD capability.

Of course HD is spectacular, and the DVR is a great feature. I love
that it can record the HD programs. And the "guide" for this box is
much much better than the previous HD box. But from what I have been
gathering there are 2 different guides, one called iGuide, and another
called MSTV (MicroSoft TV?). I think in the San Francisco bay area
it's the iGuide.
