The big issue w/ATSC OTA and cable is the encoding (8VSB vs. QAM), There's no
encoding to deal with on NTSC, so the only meaningful difference w/NTSC is
the frequency table.If one simply selects the us-cable freq table, the pcHDTV
shouldn't have a problem with NTSC cable.

Hell no. :-)

25 miles here, but monster roof-top antenna, amplifier and RG6-QS. I get all
the HD channels I care about (though two have issues...) and I believe all
the SD channels are fine, but I haven't bothered looking at any of them in
ages (I've got cable too).
