I have Cablevision in Westchester.
To a first order approximation the only ClearQAM channels that are
WCBS, WNBC, WNBCDT2, WNBCDT4, WNYW, WABC, WABCDT2, WABCDT3, WWOR,
WPIX,NEWS 12, WNET, WNETDT2,WLIW, WLIWDT2, WLIWDT3.
There are also some shopping/non-english channels, but I didn't keep
them in my database.
For the family cable channel's you'll need a cable box. I can't get
Firewire to work reliably (with an SA4250HD), so I use a PVR-150 to
capture the analog.
