There have been so many posts on STB hardware that I am not confident my hardware is working. SD means that its full screen 4x3 even when you are not cropping. I though I saw an SD version for NBC at one time.
I have a DST300. Am I missing any:
2-1 Fox HD, Good guide information
2-2 Fox SD, No guide information
4-1 NBC HD Good guide
4-2 ???? Channel not available
4-3 NBC SD No picture just a black screen
7-1 ABC HD No Guide
7-2 ABC Weather
7-3 ABC Tower Cam
I've "lost" 4-2 also, I was going to do a rescan and see if it popped back in but I guess something else is going on. I will miss that feed when West Wing and ER are on I used it to fill my screen with the letter-boxed shows.
Don't know what you mean about the guide, on my RCA the guide is useless, all it displays is "normal programming" no info what so ever.
On my Mitsubishi receiver, I'm not getting any guide info at all, just "Regular Schedule". But I am receiving 4-3 (WDIV 4:3) today. It seems to come and go; when I last checked on it with the DTC-100, it was black.
4-3 is back today so I guess that it just comes and goes. This is broadcasting full screen 4/3 perhaps the way the 4-2 used to.
I have a DST3000. They just updated the firmware and I guess all the channels are there. The APG on this generation box is very useful. When I say guide I mean that it doesn't say "Regular schedule" it has all the programming information . 4-3 got added to the guide once I tuned to it. It says "regular schedule" however.
The guide mention that the DST 3000 uses is the APG where D* sends down the info after they iniput it for the local digital stations. The RCA,Sony anything that isnt a Re-badged Hughes doesnt use the APG and relies on getting its information from the digital strem being sent by your local broadcaster but rarely works for anyone on a reagular basis every now and then I get something to show up but its never been of any use anyway. And all the programing is mirrored exept PBS 56.1. And 4.3 is a 4x3 480i signal like Fox 2.2.
