Different Channels with different TVs

My previous HDTV, a Westinghouse, picked the OTA HD channels as well as everything else provided by my cable provider through an analog cable connection, plugging straight into the TV. I upgraded to a Sony, and now I no longer receive the OTA HD channels. Nothing has changed other than the TVs. What gives?

Some TVs maybe tricky than others

I am having similar problems. Our new Sony KDL-46W4100 doesn't find all of the unscrambled digital/HD subchannels carried by Comcast that our much less sophisticated and much cheaper Trutech does [e.g., the Sony can't find the 3 digital/HD channels that local ABC channel 7 broadcasts - 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3 on the Trutech]. And the signals it does find don't have the same channel numbers on the Sony as on the Trutech [e.g., the HD boadcast from local PBS channel 26 is tuned in as 26.1 on the Trutech versus 103.11 on the Sony]. Both have QAM tuners and are connected directly to Comcast digital cable without going through a box. When I talked to Sony customer service about it, they made it sound like they never heard of this before and suggested that maybe the cable signal strength was weak.
