Windows 7: Sweet! New tuner and now HDTV Channels

Sweet! New tuner and now HDTV Channels

I bought a Hauppauge 2250 tuner and put it in my Media Center PC. I now get all of the network TV High Def channels. 4, 5, fox, and 7 now have 4.1, 5.1 and 7.1 as HD channels.

Are cable companies required to make those channels available since they are broadcast channels?

Cable companies are not required to do squat.

Oh, and great!

Vizio sees all channels but HP USB tuner doesn't.
Anybody out there have an idea why my HP USB tuner can't find all the clear QAM channels when I use it in Windows Media Center on my new HP laptop using Windows 7? My new Vizio can see them fine. I've updated all drivers, etc. If it helps the Vizio lists the channel as 708, 709, etc. and...
