However, I was not able to find the other 4 on this list with an automatic setup when I first got the TV in January. Three different Comcast reps told me they had no idea what a QAM tuner was. I have not tried recently. Anyone able to get them on the QAM tuner and knows what QAM channel numbers they are on?
I just got comcast (mainly for the internet) and already had a QAM receiver. I get the following with my receiver (LG LST-3410a)...
80.3...WB in 1080i but not HD
80.4...ABC in 720p but not HD
87.1- ... E! but it is a double image. One in top right and one in bottom left corner of screen. very weird
87.2 thru 87.? seem to be "on demand" movies. These blip on and off every few minutes most of the time. Not watchable.
94.21 thru 94.28...audio only channels
112.1...TNT HD 1080i (No Audio ever...only video)
116.1...WSBT CBS HD
116.2...WNIT PBS HD
117.1...WNDU NBC HD
117.2...WSJV FOX HD
123.6...WSJV FOX 480i
123.7...WNDU NBC 480i
123.8...WBND ABC 480i
124.1...CBS (Chicago) 480i
124.2...ABC (Chicago) 480i
124.3...PBS WTTW (Chicago) 480i
124.4...NBC (Chicago) 480i
124.9...WGN (Chicago) 480i
131.42...Weather Channel 480i
132.2...TV Guide channel 480i
A few other "non-real channels" I never watch (local comcast adds, Shop @ home, etc...)
80.3 and 80.4 (WB and ABC's HD Feeds) come and go. Reception is very inconsistent. I have never seen actual HD programming on, but since I quit watching Lost (will that show ever end???), I don't watch anything on these channels regularly. The 87.2 thru 87.??? are the same way with reception. I can't tell the channel. Like I said, appears to be possibly On Demand channels. Only ever shows movies, but it constantly cuts in and out. I never watch the HD PBS, CBS, NBC, FOX, UPN b/c I get those OTA and quality is much, much better than comcast.
