said by nephipower:these are the channels that need a digital adapter or box in San Antonio no matter what (they are not clear QAM)
Ok, things still aren't clear to me and I'm sorry if it feels like I am a broken record but let me explain things a little more.
I am pretty sure my tv is not an analog tv. Here is the exact model that I have. It is a Samsung 50" Plasma, it has been great for the 3.5 years that I have had it.
When I plugged in the coax into my tv I was able to use the channel scan feature built into the tv and it picked up a bunch of channels.
So for channels like ABC, NBC those are digital ClearQAM channels and thus I am able to view them just fine.
However for the ones that say required a digital adapter they display a message that they recently changed and I am not able to view them without an additional device from TWC.
So motorola870 those channels that you called expanded basic channels or the ones that require a DTA does that mean they are encrypted now similar to how channels for TWC "standard" and "digital" tv package are encrypted, ie ESPN, Disney, etc?
