Can one upgrade from MD4 to MD10.21? How about from 5 to 10.21?
If Comcast screws me next month when they go all digital, I'll likely have to change my system significantly anyway, so I figure I'll upgrade due to several features that are fixed in recent versions that annoy me in the old MythTV.
How painless will it be to go from MD4 up to current? Or should I do a double hop from 4 to 5 to 10.21?
As a side note, has anyone heard definitively what Comcast will do for those without boxes now, but with QAM capable TVs/tuners? I mean, it is well within their power to unencrypt the same 70 or so channels that are presently unencrypted in analog. Digital != encrypted. In fact, some stupid channels are already available in the open in digital format. Of course, nobody in their phone service hierarchy has a clue what they'll do. They all say the same three lines from a queue card with no answers in it. I think if I have to get boxes, I'll just switch to satellite. Aren't there some modded boxes that pull firewire straight out? How about those new component tuners, are they good?
Thanks as always, for the help/advice. MythDora rocks!
