aaronzott and Nick3092:
Reading some of the old posts about how one of you can pick up the HD channels via the QAM tuner and the other can't, I had a curious question come to mind. Do you both have Roadrunner as well as your TWC cable? I think the Roadrunner connection may have something to do with that as well, because last year I dropped my cable but kept my Roadrunner. Turns out I could still get about 5 channels on my TV (just talking analog channels here). I don't have a QAM tuner that I could have checked on, but I am curious if maybe I could have picked up some of the locals that way. I know the cable company must have many different kinds of filters they can use to block certain frequencies on the line. In my case they couldn't completely cap the line because they had to let the Roadrunner signal though. I'm fairly sure either the upload channel or the download channel overlaps with the analog channel 4 signal, because anytime I'm on the computer, I can see whenever I request a new webpage to load because I get interference on the TV (just channel 4 though). I seems to me the other analog channels I was picking up when I wasn't subscribed to cable were in the 60-70 range...so that must be the other area where Roadrunner uses to upload/download info. Does anyone have any idea what frequencies are used for Roadrunner.
The reason I bring this up is because I need to cut back on my monthly budget, so I'll be dropping my cable in a few months (when a roommate moves out). I have a few OTA boxes I can use, but I only have indoor antennas...therefore I get some signal breakups when watching shows. I hope to keep my Roadrunner, and will be in the market for a 37" LCD HDTV soon, so I'm trying to determine if I need to make sure I have a QAM tuner in the TV to possibly pick up the QAM HD channels off TWC. It would be very cool if some of the HD channels are in the frequencies that will still be coming to my house via the Roadrunner connection!
