I guess that's where the confusion is coming from. Everyone that has regular cable gets digital cable as well. If you don't pay for it, they encrypt most everything but the digital locals (which by law they can't). Your TV doesn't have a built-in antenna, it has a built-in QAM digital cable tuner. The channel numbers you listed are where comcast is putting those digital channels you are getting. A co-worker of mine said that on the last digital scan he did for a customer's TV, Comcast had moved WDAM from 2.1 to a channel close to the FOX station (68.1). You need to do a re-scan of channels and look around there (70.1, 67.1, etc.)
Your TV should also pick up a Weather channel digital forecast around channel 60 or so, plus VOD channels in the 70-90 range. The VOD channels will be blank unless someone in your area is watching a VOD program. If you have children I would delete those channels from the TV, as you will never have any idea what type of VOD program someone might be watching.
Any word yet on what might be causing the audio problems I talked to you about a couple of weeks ago? Shows originating in stereo still have a hollow and out-of-phase sound, and shows originating in 5.1 still have their dialog coming out of every speaker.
