[HD] Local+HD+DVR+HSI Possible

Will comcast allow local channels only, in HD, with a DVR & HSI? I'll probably have Comcast for Internet regardless of the TV situaiton, and I'd rather not deal with reception issues with getting my TV OTA.

they use to do allow limited basic with an HD box/package....dont know if you can still get it though....only way to know for sure is to call, if they seem dumbfounded try a post in comcast direct...

also by the old 1992 law you can add HBO to limited basic as well.

I imagine it will depend on the market, but typically you can get an HD STB with just Limited Basic but not a HD-DVR, for that they want you to subscribe to I believe Digital Starter or higher. If you have a HD-capable TiVo all you need is a CableCARD and you're good to go.
