Can anyone tell me how to receive channels 7-2 and 7-3 on my Samsung SIR-T150? It normally just says no signal when I put those channels on. However when I check the signal strength there is a signal available.
The only time I have seen anything was by accident. I was surfing yesterday and when I went to 7-2 it displayed 41-2 and the radar came up! I then went up a channel and back down but it then displayed 7-2.
If anyone out there can tell me how to receive those channels it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Zack

Zach,
I've got the same problem. Did you find a resolution? I was thinking of talking to ABC to see if they know what's up. Anybody got an email address of the WXYZ engineer?

Thanks.

I had the same problem and found a solution, but you may not like it. I turned off the get guides on my RCA unit and that way my receiver does not re-map channels and 41-2 and 41-3 always come in. If I let it re-map I loose them. Weird. I can live with out the tower cam but I do like the radar.

I only see the Channel 7 subs when I lose some signal and the channels default to their native channel ID. Any remapping happens and back to nothing. I also would like the radar.

I don't think the Samsung works like the RCA. I never turn on a get guide function because I never get a guide.

A couple of versions ago, our cable system carried a 24 hour radar channel that was useful in thunderstorm season (like soon).

I have seen enough to know I have seen too much. (A League of Their Own)
