your computer needs to have a tuner card

and you will need the comcast converter box, that is leased from comcast.

doesnt that mean we cannot avoid the HD fee's from comcast because we need a comcast box for the mac ID to connect to the digital network?

i think if the tuner card can accept the digital format.. it should have its own ID that can be used on the comcast network.
its a lot harder to restrict what channels you can view if you dont have something connected that has an ID that is registered with comcast.

i'd be upset if they told me i have to rent a box or buy my own box to use with a tuner card.
