Default Time Warner Cable in Los Angeles- STD, HRC or IRC?

setting up my Samsung LN46A550, with a QAM tuner.
I was told by several reliable sources that I can get some HD channels
on this TV without a STB.
While setting it up, I started to Auto program and have three
choices, STD, HRC, IRC ... don't know which one TWC uses,
anyone know? in Los Angeles?

I tried STD but didn't get any HD channels.

thanks!

I believe STD is what you want to use. If you're not getting any channels in HD, are you sure you did the scan correctly? Did you do the scan for analog and digital?

Default Same issue

Does anyone know if this is correct?

I have a Samsung LA46A540 and I've split the cable: One goes directly into the television and the other goes to the STB where it is then connected through HDMI to the TV. The channels from the box look great, however the ones on the coaxial source are pretty terrible. The higher channels are almost completely fuzzy. I auto-programmed using the STD setting...should I have done IRC or HRC? Is there any other issue that I've missed?

Thanks.

The easiest way to answer your question is for you to try all three options (STD, IRC, HRC), one at a time, and the use the one that gives the best result.

Mizz, welcome to High Def Forum. If you have a box, use it. No need to plug the cable directly into the TV. What you describe sounds like analog cable. The higher numbers may not look as good. If you are lucky, the box will give you all digital. In any event, you will get more from the box than from the TV alone. Enjoy your HD.

Actually, it's a smart set-up. Split the coaxil. Send one to the cable box and run hdmi cable back to the TV. The other coaxil goes straight back to the TV to be accessed from the TV's menu. Be sure to use the proper splitter, and coaxil wire though. Older stuff isn't rated for HD purposes.

I split my cable line because the wife will have the DVR box recording two shows at one time. This locks me out of watching anything else. The other benefit is that when one of my Time Warner Cable, craptastic, Scientific Atlantic boxes goes bad it's easy to watch TV. In fact my current box just stopped transmitting a picture and I have to return it tomorrow.
