I am getting rid of STBs and getting local channels through FiOS.
The Samsung smart TV was able to scan all channels and everything works fine for that TV.
The older Seiko TV doesn't have a QAM tuner. I purchased an Aluratek ADTB01F external tuner. A first auto scan registered 400 channels, most of them scrambled and none of them HD.
I read that those tuners have a 400 channels limit and fill up before hitting the higher channels. I factory reset the device and manually scanned channels 71-75 (as recommended in another post). I'm getting a few channels in but none of them HD.
So my question is: where are those local HD channels hiding?
Partial solution: I did not go far enough.
I found some HD channels at 76 and 77. I identified them to the best of my ability. Somehow more Boston stations than Providence stations.
