Digiblur, I'm confused about the QAM tuner on basic cable. I saw 2 of your posts that I'm going to extract:
"The only reason you can't get WGMB... But I do pick them up just fine with my QAM tuner on basic cable though so I'm still happy." and
"I use my own homegrown version of a DVR. ... and Cox basic cable on ANT2 for the QAM channels."
HD and basic cable? I've got Cox. I scanned for channels 2 days ago due to power failure and picked up a few digital channels numbered somewhere between 7x-yy, 8x-yy, and 9x-yy. When I tried to look at the HD picture on WVLA earlier tonight, it wouldn't come in until a commercial came on. Saw the commercial, and when the program came back, the screen went blank again. I assume that's because Cox scrambled the HD signal. I've got a QAM tuner in my TV. Apparently, you're getting an HD picture over basic cable. What am I missing?
While I'm at it, is it possible to tune directly to the subchannel if you know what it is (80-19 for example), or can you only get to them if the TV finds them (tune to 80 and hope the TV finds the signal on 19)?
Thanks for the help.
