Clear QAM TV channels are unencrypted digital TV channels broadcast by your local cable operator. Many cable operators in North America are transmitting the high definition ATSC channels on their cable networks. They also broadcast the basic cable channels in using clear QAM. You can use the WinTV v6 application to watch and record these channels. Note: you need to be using either the Hauppauge WinTV v7 application, or Windows Media Center with TV Pack 2008 or Windows 7, for clear QAM TV compatibility.
