For the most part, I just plug the cable from Comcast into the back of the TV and make the TV scan for channels. About the only problem I remember is that because I have two TV and two tuners (that's a lot of splits, with signal loss at each) plus some long cable runs, I have a powered signal amplifier right after my first splitter (the cable modem is on the other branch of that splitter).

The tuners in the computer used to work just by downloading the appropriate provider in the guide data, but I ended up having to set it up manually at one point. I used this site to see all the channels available (with a small screen shot).
