Reset power counter last night - it was at 4, what it should have been if there's two from the factory. Today, still "0" even though it found two new stations (locals that it didn't see because of the bad weather.)
Powered right up - I left the standby at default 4 hr. It occurred to me that using standby too much might increase chances of bad things? A lot of people seem to be turning the thing on and off regularly - I turn it on and leave it alone.
My power chain is dedicated 20A (wish it was 30A)->Tripp-Lite power conditioner (i.e. voltage regulator)->1400VA UPS.
No trouble getting the remote to work with panny plasma. I tried a few codes then did the up/down thing. I followed the directions exactly and it worked first time.
TVGOS sucks - only get two stations so far that go out a week. Doesn't really matter to me, but it would be fun to have. I've never had a guide of any sort before, strictly OTA here, and the PSIP going out several hours saves a lot of channel surfing and I'm diggin it.
It was a trip watching HD recorded programming last night, having 5.1 sound made a larger impact than I thought it would (Philips is 2.0.) But I was frustrated by not having a counter when viewing recorded material.
Is there an easy way to view time remaining or whatever when viewing a recording?
