I have a group subscription through the property management and Comcast gave every tenant a pair of QAM to analog 3 converter boxes, which they're saying "YOU HAVE TO USE IT".
The instruction says to push the analog output through the VCR, but the problem with that is that I can't record and watch different channels and I have to pre-set the Comcrap box to the channel I want to record before I can even program the DVR/VCR.
My TV is QAM compatible, so I can still watch the channels, but I can't remap anything and things show up as like RF100-002 while the Comcast box will let me see the proper familiar station name and channel # correlations.
An additional benefit of not using the Comcast box is that I can get a few local HD stations.
I have a 32" MAG TV... how do I go about NOT using the Comcast box, but to get the correct channel mapping?
