Re: [DTA] Are DTA boxes with HD coming out any time soon?

I believe that, after the HD-DTAs become widely available, they will be the only units that will then be provided to customers, and the older SD-only units will be phased-out.

As the HD-DTAs are equipped with both HDMI and Channel 3/4 RF outputs (see: »www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Vid···2011.pdf), I would think that if you don't pay the per-account "HD Technology Fee," Comcast will not add the HD channels to the HD-DTA's channel map and will disable its HDMI output. In that case, only the SD Channel 3/4 RF output will work and it would then act like an SD-DTA.
