Yeah, cable into a set-top box decrypts the digital cable so your TV can
view it.  If you don't use the set-top box, then only analog channels are
available.  Every major cable company has different channel layouts for
digital than analog.  The problem IS that you have the wrong channel lineup
setup for your setup.  If you are not using digital, then change your zap2it
settings to your cable company's analog lineup.  Chris' answer is correct.
