Yes, you will need to read up on this.  I believe that some cable
channels are encrypted but I don't know which ones.

TriLug members could help out by adding some more info to the MythTV
wiki for our region.  There are only two entries for North Carolina
cable TV line-ups.  This is the closest, and it is out of date (2007).
