For the first 50 channels, does the FIOS TV DVR convert from analog to digital before recording, or is there a direct bit-for-bit digital recording mode for the first 50 channels?

Since the 2500/6400 STB specifications do not include any NTSC or ATSC tuners, then it seems impossible that the STB even sees analog channels 2-49.  It expects digital QAM signals, and/or IP data.  So it obviously must start over by requesting these low channels via QAM, same as any other channel.

Short answer: They are digital when viewed via the STB
