What's your CBS channel call letters? Still using Comcast cable without a STB?
Let's say it is KOIN:
Then KOIN transmits on OTA physical channel 40. The PSIP table means you should get it on channel 6, its old pre-digital channel.
Like many cable feeds it may still have an analog signal on channel 6. If it's sent via clear QAM the physical channel could be anything. If it passes the PSIP data you will get the digital channel on 6. If not, there is no way to predict the actual physical channel, either SD or HD or both.
I have left off decimal subchannel numbers.
Without a STB you should get KOIN on the same channel as your digital TV when your TV is connected to the rf cable from the wall.Edited by JoeKustra - 12/20/12 at 1:17pm
