There are some channels that I can get via antenna that do not currently 
appear on the Rogers Digital Cable listings (like WNED's "Think Bright" 
channel on 43_3 and WNGS on channel 7_2). In other words if I used Rogers 
Digital Cable I would be out of luck on some channels...

The solution that I have been using, which comes close to being perfect is to 
claim that I have a over the air tuner in US zip code 14174 (Youngstown, NY), 
which I have tied to my HDTV tuner card (my analog tuner cards being tied to 
Rogers Cable with my mid-town Toronto, ON postal code).

Now, I could continue with using a US zip code, but, well ... it just feels 
wrong to have to lie about my location in order to get the data that ought to 
be correctly available for my location...
