    Does the Premiere allow OTA channels while using the CableCard and if so how? It has 2 coax connectors on back, one for each. It says channel scanning is not possible with my present setup.

    Yes, it's absolutely possible. You have to re-do Guided Setup and choose both Cable and OTA. To redo Guided setup, go to Settings -> Channels -> Channel List -> press the enter button.

    I'm thinking of doing the same with my Premier XL. If I do this, would I lose all of the cable setup info? In other words, would I have call the cable company again and go through the complete setup of the box and tuning adapter like when I first setup the box? I wouldn't mind having to go through the channel setup again but don't want to have to set the whole box up from scratch as it was a rather painful process the first time around.

    Won't be necessary by just redoing Guided Setup. The card will still be paired.
