You would not sacrifice the ABILITY to do anything.

But we know that you really want to transmit as many crappy
SD channels as possible ... IF you can force cable carriage,
of course. Our local PBS station has actually said that,
in so many words. Of course, this presupposes they get on the
air before losing their license! "The encoders are ordered".
Well, I should hope so given how much warning of the
digital transmission they have had!!! I would have hoped
that they would have actually orderend them years ago!
