If HDMI, have you tried all the HDMI formats using the HDMI button on the remote?
Also, it might be worthwhile to try Component RGB, Composite YWR or S-Video just to see if the HDMI circuit/EDID communication might be the problem (feedback)?
HDMI is a PITA!
It's in HDMI, and everything is working fine other than that specific channel.
I certainly can't blame you for trying to help find a solution, I appreciate every bit of it, but at this point HDMI as nothing to do with OTA reception issues.
I did try all the resolutions from 480p to 1080p and notice little difference on PQ. Also tried both RGB normal and enhanced, preffered normal. My TV doesn't have S-video or anything not digital. I guess they figured anyone who gets a VT25 wants the highest PQ available...
@DonB2 Perhaps by trying to give so many details, I may have sound confused. Let me try this one last time.
Antenna plugged in directly in TV (as if Mag didn't even existed) : FOX came in at 52%
Antenna plugged in the Mag : FOX doesn't come in at all, in either tuners, both at 0%.
Take this other example for a channel that does come in, in both scenarios.
Antenna plugged in directly in TV (as if Mag didn't even existed) : PBS came in at 79%, NBC at 87%
Antenna plugged in the Mag : PBS now comes in at 71% in the TV's tuner, and 17% in the Mag's tuner. NBC still 87% in TV tuner, but 72% in Mag's tuner.
So, for PBS, it's an 8% drop in my TV's tuner, just by plugging it through the Mag, but the Mag itself pick it up much, much lower, yet still gets a lock and stable image/sound. But for FOX, it's a 52% drop in my TV's tuner, and Mag tuner doesn't pick it up at all either.
