I have both an HDTV-ready TV and digital cable, what more do I need (if I need anything more) to receive HDTV signals?

Thanks!

Should be getting it now if you have the digital cable box, as that also acts as the HD converter box.

Only primetime shows on major networks are shown in HD, I've noticed. Other shows will come in the old analog signal.

Try watching a major network tomorrow night at primetime, and it should be in HDTV. If not, call your cable man.

And ofcourse an antenna, but thats a given.

What equipment do you have?

I don't pick up crap here in Gainesville. All I get are the three directv stations.

Check channels and stations:

Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.

this is not correct, not in Houston anyway. For TimeWarner cable, you must have the digital cable box, plus another $5 a month for a HD box.

You can also get via satellite and antenna as mentioned before. With those options you normally have to buy your own HD converter which is pretty expensive.
