Your should be concerned if cable from "Sat dish" is able to pass HDTV signals.

I just have installed Comcast HD box. They currently run 5 HD channels. The demo HD channel looks great. HBO,SHO, ABC and NBC looks better than regular channels, but quality is less than demo channel generally being on par with average DVD.
Sound quality is not even close to DVD though.
Anyways with current promotions on HBO, Showtime, free installation you will get instead of regular box HD box with component connection to your TV and Digital Audio to processor vs. buying second dish, receiver etc.
Not to mention a cable internet access from the same line. For me the cable is a winner.
However if you want to know what guys who know what they are talking about think, you’d better go to avsforum.com
I'ved been on Directv, bought a Panasonic TU HDS-20. My family hates it, too many buttons to push. If I can get a picture via cable that looks like a DVD on my system, i would be thrilled. One ?- does Comcast box have a DD out to go to my Yammie RXV-995. The toslink out on the Panasonic sounds pretty good. It won't compete with my 2 channel set up (@ 10x cost) but beats the heck out of the DD output from my Sony DSS.
Well, an update!
COMCAST IS NOT INFORMED of their goods to sell!
The poor individual shows up and gives me this piece of crap box, no component out for HD and no COAX or TOSLINK.
I said, "how is this supposed to get HD and Digital sound?"
"Oh, it won't, we don't offer HD yet, sometime in 2003 or 2004, and there is no digital sound".
So, I will keep the garbage sat dish I have now.
STAY AWAY FROM COMCAST unless you absolutely, positively, can not avoid them!!
AND, their internet service is $60 a month now!
