Coudn't find a forum where this seemed to fit, so I guess this is as good as any... We put a digital flatscreen tv with ATSC/NTSC/QAM in our little-used guest room a few months ago. The only signal feed we have there is a very basic cable connection (our bottom-feeder package contains just local stations plus a small list of extras like Weather, CSPAN, couple of shopping channels). Was quite pleased to find the set was also able to receive and decode the HD versions of the locals along with their low res basic cable versions, plus the sub-channels that were not available via NTSC. I thought I recalled that the legislation requiring the conversion to digital said something about basic cable being required to provide the digital versions in the clear of any local stations they carried in the clear. But yesterday I was playing around with this set and the only HD locals being received were the main and sub-channels for the two PBS broadcasters in our region. All the SD locals are still there. Before I call to complain -- am I all wet that they are supposed to carry local digitals in the clear?
