What problems are you having using Uverse with mythTV?  I hear mixed
reviews but some folks on the mythTV list seem to have it working.

That said, I still use mythTV with analog cable (like Sean, and it
works well enough), and I recently added an HD homerun for Over The
Air HD.  Aside from probably needing a better antenna I couldn't be
happier.  I'm dreading the switch to digital cable, and hoping we get
done with all this "channel" nonsense and I can order shows a-la-carte
when I finally have to give up the analog tuner.

TWC is only allowing digital cable with new accounts now (from what I
understand), so you might want to find a digital TWC user with mythTV
to check before you switch.
