I want to tune in with my QAM tuner (no set top box). I know the QAM
channel numbers for ABC-HD, NBC-HD and FOX-HD.

I just need CBS (Kyw).

Anyone know?

Network HD simulcasts: 231-235 and 240
ABC News and Weather: 245 and 246
Premium HD: 215, 219, 223, 227

Or use the channel guide on the remote. They changed yesterday.

Thanks for the quick reply. But actually, i am talking about the channel
numbers for those not using a set top box, just the built in QAM tuner in
the HD tv.

For instance, I can get ABC on 114-1, NBC on 114-4 and Fox on 100-1.
But what is CBS? Any other "hidden" channels like this?

First item.. a QAM tuner can't pull in any OTA broadcasts.
You'll need a ATSC(8VSB) receiver.

If you already have a ATSC(8VSB) receiver, then plug your zip code
into the following web page..
http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Address.aspx

That link will generator a table of OTA stations broadcasting in
your area. The call signs ending with a -DT suffix are digitial.
The actual frequency assignment will be listed in the rightmost column
of the table.

Note: You'll need some sort of antenna connected to the receiver
input. Match your reception requirements with the appropriate
antenna type.. see

So KYW is a CBS affiliate now? When it was in Cleveland many years ago,
it was an NBC station. I assume that it's still in Philadelphia?

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?

KYW is CBS. It used to be NBC-- they switched about 6 years ago.
