Comcast HDTV channels

I have my pcHDTV HD-3000 set up in QAM mode (the drivers are included in kernel 2.6.12 prereleases!) Using the diagnostic mode on the Comcast cable receiver (my dad's idea), I found out the frequencies of the local HD channels. All the non-broadcast ones seem to be encrypted, but I'm still getting more HD channels off of cable than I was over the air in Maryland. Sadly missing, of course, is UPN.

I'm posting the channels for reference, as these should be useful to anyone else in the Philadelphia area with Comcast.

QAM256 Ch.   Program   Description
114          1         WPVI (ABC)
114          2         WCAU (NBC)
115          1         WHYY (PBS)
115          2         KYW  (CBS)
116          1         WPHL (WB)
116          2         WTXF (FOX)

Star Trek: Enterprise. It just looks so good in HD.

For some reason, Comcast just doesn't carry it. The only way I could get it is with an even bigger antenna than the one I have.
