I've had a weird problem with my Samsung ln-t4661f since I bought it over a year ago. Sometimes the channels just switch for no reason. I only watch over the air TV with an antenna, no cable or satellite.

For example, PBS channels are 8-1, 8-2, and 8-3. Every once in a while I'll tune to one of those channels and the TV flickers and all of a sudden PBS is channel 29-3, 29-4, and 29-5. The 8 channels will disappear from my TV, I can't even tune to them. After a few days or weeks of this, they will switch back to the right channels (8-1, 8-2, and 8-3.) This has happened with other channels too, over and over again.

Things are usually normal for a while, then this happens again. Also ABC, which is channels 15-1 and 15-2, has disappeared many months ago and has never come back, it didn't switch to another number, the network is just gone because my TV will no longer tune to 15-1 or 15-2. It's like they don't exist.

Is there any way to fix this? Do I need a firmware upgrade?

Has anyone else had to upgrade the firmware on a Samsung for any other problems? I don't see any firmware upgrades on Samsung's site for this model.

Samsung LN-T4042H

We seem to have the same problem since day one, and we own it sine last nov 07. It is very annoying. There is another problem that I have, when goes through the CHlisting or go through the QAM channels to del it out, it freezes a ton of times and made the screen goes nuts and shut-off.

I called samsung several weeks after purchasing it but those bastards put me on hold over 30min long, not to mention i was on hold for about 15min prior.

The solution for me is to put those QAM channels in "FAVORITE" and just toggle through one button.
