I use an HDHomerun as well as 4 LCD Digital TV's of various brands with QAM tuners and all I get is the same standard definition shows that I get on any analoge TV without a cablebox and I get absolutly no HD network broadcast channels.
On my cable system (Cablevision of oakland) in Northern New jersey they broadcast there HD network programming on channel 702, 704, 705 etc which would be the same as the free OTA channels 2.1 (CBSHD) 4.2 (NBCHD) etc.
I hooked up a cheap indoor HD antenna (cost me $15.00) to my HDHomerun as well as a couple of my HDTV's and I can get all my OTA local HD channels so I know the QAM tuners all work.
Now I know about setting antenna types for cable or antenna in the QAM tuner setup and I'm pretty sure its not my setup.
When I call my cable company they tell me stuff like your tuner is set up wrong try setting it to HRC or IRC or CATV which my QAM tuners don't even have these settings they have either cable or antenna as selections. Or they tell me It must be a low signal. I even had one guy tell me that they haven't started broadcasting HD yet and it won't start until sometime next year. Then I informed him that through your cablebox I've been watching HD for the last 3 years. At that time he abruptly hung up on me. They have been no help at all.
Sorry about my venting and rambling on. Its been very fustrating investing all this money into equipment and it not doing what the cable company says it's susposed to do. I'm not asking for the world I just want to be able to watch my local network broadcasts in HD without having to have a cablebox on every TV I own.
Is there anyone out there that has cablevision in northern New jersey that is getting network HD broadcasts channels E.G CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX etc without having to use a cablebox?
Or is there anyone that may have some ideas or can explain to me why this is not possible.
