Probably wont work with cable digital channels, which, I believe, are 
usually QAM (Quadrature amplitude modulation).  I think that 
over-the-air is strictly FM (Frequency Modulation).  It is conceivable 
that the cable company provides over-the-air type signals, but our cable 
company (Comcast) is into maximizing profits, and for that, they need to 
get as many channels crammed down the pipe as possible and QAM enables 
LOTS of channels on a single wire.
