I've had my Samsung DTB-H260F for about two weeks now feeding OTA signals to the HDMI input of my Westy 42". So far I can report I have experienced no problems using this input (such as flashing, etc.). Once the box locks on a signal, it is extremely stable, but does not find as many signals as my old Sylvania 3000Z does. I should note that I am located in southeastern Michigan, with my major towers being 30+ miles (Toledo) and 50+ miles (Detroit) away. I have noticed that it is possible to lock up the Samsung if rapid and frequent channel changes are done, as I was doing when constantly switching inputs and channels while comparing the two STB's. This was easily overcome by re-starting the box. As mentioned in earlier posts, the sound output is very low compared to the Sylvania, but can be overcome if the volume is set to max on the box and using the Westy's volume control for veiwing programs. I intend to keep the unit, though I wish it had greater sensitivity to weker channels.
