I understand a QAM tuner isn't for the OTA. But cable companies send the
local HD channels thru the cable. So I can watch all my locals without an
OTA antenna, because I have cable (just not digital cable or HD package)..
For instance, Comcast here sends our local NBC HD (WCAU- HD) on channel
114-4. Of course, on their cable box it will be some other channel.
So what is the "secret" channel number for KYW (CBS-HD), WB and UPN?
