I just joined avsforum and it looks like a greate site so far. I just bought the FLM-2632 last night and since I don't have cable or dish, I hooked it up to the old standby rabbit ears from my old CRT TV. I have a few problems with the unit and just want to see if you guys know what the problem is:
1. I was able to get a greate picture for ABC, WB, WOR, (ch 7, 11, 9) but the picture for the other channels were bad FOX , NBC, CBS. I don't know why but perhaps I need a Terk HDTVi antenna?
2. The channel up/down buttons does not seem to work on the remote. When I use the buttons it seem to be switching channels but the channel the ot goes to is the same one I was on. So, I'm on channel 7 and I press up or down and I ended up on channel 7 again. Changing the channels using the number buttons works fine.
3. I hear a cracking (snap, crackle, pop rice crispies???) from the TV when the volume up to normal. When I mute or when I turn the volumne down to nothing I don't hear the cracking. This only happens with the broadcast channels. The audio thrugh the DVD play sounds fine.
4. I hooked up my DVD player (Apex 1600) to the TV via RCA cables and used the new TV remote to operate the TV and the DVD player (I programmed the remote using the code in the TV's owner's manual) When I tried to use the ff and fr aand chapter skips on the DVD it will work and then it changes the channel on my TV and then goes from DVD to TV mode.
I'l appreciate any help on this.
