Hi all-I am in the process of trying to cut the cable cord, and I am almost there . I have an AppleTV hacked with Boxee, and that is great except I obviously can't get any of my local channels. But, I am reading in places about something called Clear QAM and had a couple questions. I believe my Samsung HDTV has a QAM tuner in it, but I'm not sure. 1. If I can get odd channels like 8-1, 8-2, 15-3, 99-4 but I don't officially pay for digital cable; is this an indicator that I have a QAM tuner built-in? 2. If I do have a QAM tuner built in, can I safely cancel my cable subscription, and still get these channels, if my TV is plugged into cable? 3. Why does the cable company not block this out–it seems like it would be illegal. Thanks in advance for all your replies!
