I sometimes pick up as many as 170 digital channels. The additional channels are what I call "On Demand" channels. At times I can view what someone in the area is watching, because he/she decoded the signal by entering the PIN using their own set top box. Rush Hour 3 has been a popular movie lately. On Demand channels I often come across with a signal are 106.13-106.15, 107.25-107.30, 113's, 114.45-114.59
I pick up the same channels with the basic RCA antenna. It came in handy on Thanksgiving when TW all of the sudden went off air during the Cowboy game.
I rescanned my channels to make sure nothing has changed, because just recently (Feb 6th or 9th) I received the expanded basic channels in digital, 480i though. No new HD channels yet. I was told by a tech rep at TW that with the digital package I would be able to pick up more digital channels, with the built in tuner. My apt complex provides the cable, so I didn't bother to upgrade. I think I have enough channels with expanded basic. Rescan your channels once a week for possible new channels.
