HD tuner that will tune QAM cable channels
How do I know? Consult your HD TV set owner's manual
HD QAM tuner option: If you have your HD TV set connected to CSi Cable and are watching channels 2--77 now, go to set-up, channel programming and SCAN the cable channels in again. This may take 5 minutes or more, depending on set. Wait for it to finish!
How do I scan? Consult Your Manual
Tune to channel 77 & Up arrow. If the set has a QAM tuner, you will see KVLY on 78.11 UP ARROW to view other channels. If you do not see the channels, the set might not be able to tune QAM channels. CONSULT THE OWNER'S MANUAL.
Tip: to view HD channels, enter 77, and then UP ARROW to 78.11 UP ARROW again to view 78.13, etc. Some TVs will allow direct entry of channels, by pressing 8 1 dot 9 enter to view 81.9

FAQ - What is the difference between Digital TV & High Def?
Standard Definition TV (SDTV) - SDTV is the basic level of quality display and resolution for both analog and digital. Transmission of SDTV may be in either the traditional (4:3) or widescreen (16:9) format.
High Definition TV (HDTV) - HDTV in widescreen format (16:9) provides the highest resolution and picture quality of all digital broadcast formats. Combined with digitally enhanced sound technology, HDTV sets new standards for sound and picture quality in television. (Note: HDTV and digital TV are not the same thing — HDTV is one format of digital TV.)
