Attention all Sunflower Broadband customers!
My ex (the general manager) pointed out to me that they are giving away (yes, free) digital boxes. Seems they are going to be changing over to digital everything soon, so we will be needing those boxes. Just call them up and they will offer to install them, or have you come pick them up. There is a third option (at least right now) to have them mail the boxes to you, as well, but I had to ask for that directly.

But my understanding is that with a digital box I would not be able to have the VCR change channels anymore - it could only record on the channel the digital box was set for - POUT - of if that is not the case I can't get anyone to confirm it

Sorry, I don't know the answer to that one, either. :(

Seems to be vague about that:
FCC FAQ says they will work as before, but I dunno. I know my satellite box has to be on the proper channel, but I do think there is a work-around for that, I just haven't been worried with two other boxes to record upon.
Now I might get worried.

Bummer.
It's just like the satellite box.

My only irritation with that is that my ReplayTV only records analog. I have a digital receiver on my mac upstairs, but it's not as elegant of a solution.
