we had to get one of these for each of our tvs recently in order to continue getting all of our channels. you get like two per household for free, maybe that's your problem?
You must be in an area that is the beta for digital only. There are only a few of those areas that have cut off analog completely (coming in the next couple years to everywhere).

Not sure what's going on with the lack of channels though, you should get 2-99 plus local HD's with straight coax in. Anything above that will also need a Comcast box.
See this is what I figured. I pull the exact same cable out of the computer and put it into the TV and I am able to get all the channels I am looking for.
The TV you plugged the coax into: Is it HD or HD ready? I don't think it really matters, if your area Comcast has cut off analog you'd get zero channels if your tuner is analog only not 9. Is there a setting on the tuner or the computer software to change Cable/Air? Have you tried updating the drivers? That's always a good idea.
