That's completely dependent on you local cable franchise.  At my
location, I can't get _any_ HD from the cable.  All the relevant QAM
channels are encrypted so I can't tune them directly, and they're
marked as not free to copy with the 5C settings, so I can't  get 'em
through the firewire on the cable box.
