Hey mkj, maybe you can help with a problem I have.
I have a Toshiba DST-3000 DirecTV receiver, and I have an issue with OTA digital channels 15-1 and 15-2. They show up in my program guide but if I select them from the guide I get nothing. I can select 15-3 from the guide to watch the weather radar without any problem.
I can get 15-1 by using the numeric pad to enter 31-1 directly (entering 15-1 does not work). Same with 15-2; I can get it by entering 31-2. The problem is, if I get to 15-1 by entering 31-1, after a period of time it just goes black - no video and no audio. It always does this precisely on the hour and the half hour but at other times as well. Also, once I enter 31-1 to watch 15-1, if I bring up the guide (just bringing up the guide, not changing channels) as soon as the guide is finished loading the video goes black and the audio goes silent.
I have rescanned the local OTA channels several times and it has not fixed this problem. Since the other local OTA channels work just fine, could this problem be on your end? PSIP perhaps?
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
