Read the manual -- chances are you will need to do some kind of channel scan to set the QAM tuner up to receive any available digital channels. That is how it works with my Panasonic with built-in QAM tuner. Comcast in my part of NJ (07974) offers only a few HD digital channels "in the clear" -- the locals (CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC, CW, PBS) as well as DiscoveryHD and UniversalHD.Other HD channels, like ESPN-HD, ESPN2-HD, TNT-HD and the premium channels, are unavailable. Most of the SD digital channels are also not "in the clear".
