My TV does not have QAM tuner.

I DO have basic cable from comcast, I am using OTA for HD now.
But I would like to use cable for local HD channels.

I understand that I need QAM tuner for that.

Is there any QAM tuner available for this purpose.

I was looking in forum about this.
I saw few like samsung SIR-TS360 , MOTOROLA DCT6412 etc.

Are they only for Direct TV, DISH Network ??

Please help me out here.

See the list at

Scroll down to the section "Over the air DTV/HDTV" and pay attention to the entries marked "QAM in the clear". Those units are capable of both ATSC (OTA) and QAM (cable) reception.

Don't spend the money until you are sure your cable provider is broadcasting HD in clear QAM. I can only get one this way, use OTA for most. - DRb
