Answers trickling in on Comcast’s digital plans, Microsoft now involved

Apparently people are very, very concerned about Comcast’s plans to switch “expanded basic” channels to digital signals next year and require more cable boxes.

Tons of questions have come in since Monday’s column. I’ve been adding answers and new information from Comcast to an expanding FAQ list on the blog.

The latest additions include photos of the new Comcast boxes, clarification that TVs with QAM tuners will need a box to get digital channels, and word that Comcast is working with Microsoft to sort out issues with Media Center PCs.
