Actually, that would be 62 for Cable and 14 for OTA, and only applies to 
NTSC (since the tuner is NTSC only).

And it will be close, but not exact.  You will probably still have 
problems with cable channels 20 and/or 21 (and there's a very small 
possibility that 22 will also cause problems).

So, it's always better to patch the module (or use a patched module from 
a package) if you can.
