Question re new cable scramblers about to be rolled out

I have two question for Dave or the Cable Chair. I’m very confused as far as these new scrambler boxes go in January.

1. I have two old television sets and they both have a Comcast digital box right now. Will I need the additional scramblers for these old TV’s if I already have boxes on them?


2. I have a new HD television. I have a Comcast box on that new TV. Will I need this new scrambler for my new HD television in addition to the Comcast box.


This has probably been asked several times and I apologize in advance for the repeat question.

Thank you so much to Dave and all the hard workers of UCO and a happy, healthy New Year to all!

    Business as usual at Comcast, we are working this discrepancy with our account executive.

  6. Hi Dave,
    Comcast answer to my question whether or not I need a DTA box: "In line with your concern, your HD-ready TV will work with a digital cable card or a digital set-top box. I understand your HD-ready TV is already hooked up with a digital converter, there is no need for you to install or hook it up with DTA." Thank you for all your help.
