I have contacted tech support and they basically told my I'm SOL on this unit. I received this unit Wed 3/27. I get most of the digital channels on this Magnavox, but there are duplicate channels (FOX) 14.1 and a religious channel 14.1 and 7.1 ABC from Albuquerque, NM and 7.1 ABC from El Paso Texas. I can get these on the Magnavox, however, when setting up a time for a program on 14.1 It records the religious channel not the FOX channel. I go into the manual channel delete and it will bring up both 14.1 channels. When I go channel down the Fox 14.1 disappears and the only one available is the 14.1 religious channel. If I delete the 14.1 from the channel I don't get it period! Is there a solution for this problem? I've called magnavox/Funai 7 times and get no help. This is OTA with a HDTV WA-2608 roof top antenna. The Green, blue and red ports on the magnavox won't work. I have the HDMI connectedm as well as the yellow, red and white (won't record without it) I have a top of the line Vizio 42" smart TV. Tech support keeps telling me I have to have the TV on the channel I want to record, which is crazy with a timer if I'm not home...

Can someone please help.

Maybe a third time will be a charm. Try:

BTW, the Magnavox doesn't use TVGOS and isn't HD.

I get 24 HD channels OTA and receive the same through the Magnavox recorded. That like you have doesn't help. I've tried everything... I don't have cable or satellite...it's all OTA

maybe I'm not using the correct lingo. I have an HDTV roof antenna and the broadcast is digital.

Your post from last week didn't do much either. If you want help with a Mag, then I think the Mag forum would be a good place to start.

Since KOAT and KVIA are both channel 7, you might have a problem.

Yes channel 7 and 14.1 are duplicate w/different programs. I googled and searched forums, mag. customer service, nothing! Thanks anyway.

You might want to try asking your question in this thread, it's the Magnavox owners thread.
