My Kworld ATSC tuner dongle on my laptop was only able to get 2 carriers.
On a side note, T-W cable in my area, totally discontinued all forms of analog reception. The last of the channels that were still analog, now have a screen that shows a message that states, "You need one of these", to get a picture. It shows a picture of the digital converter, that they furnish.
My 20" RCA, that everyone seems to hate, still gets the broadcast-type DTV channels from the cable. Same with jail sets, but they have to be re-scanned, as the ota, vs the cable frequencies are different.
