Besides, this technology isn't the best and the TV's will be outdated within the 2009 digital switch anyways.

No offense, but do you have any idea what you're talking about? TVs are required to come with a digital tuner now, and have been for quite some time. 99% of the TVs you see for sale in the U.S. are ATSC, which means they are digital capable. And if your TV is hooked up to a cable provider, then it doesn't matter whether you have a digital-capable TV or not as the cable provider has to deal with the change and not you.

As far as the issues go with a 1080i TV, find me a TV that passes 1080i/24p testing. They are few and far between. You can get noticeable image artifacts, such as a "checkerboard" pattern when the frames involve fine, parallel lines (e.g. a chain link fence).
