of the ATSC tuner.
Red means off and ready to respond to the remote, no light means no power. Green usually means normal operations. I use the DVI and VGA inputs on my HDTV most of the time and the analog software in my HDTV has no problems.
Chuck, does your DTV have a power light?
Also what stream on KTNC were you watching?
When I tune to KTNC I get a frozen picture and the TV cycles on and off.
Frozen picture with no sound and then normal picture for a few seconds and then repeat could well be a station problem.
When I see something wrong I check another tuner type, I have four types.
Actually turning the HDTV set off maybe, turning it back on NO.
Oh yeah, it also reset the TV time/date as though there was a power failure.
That really points to a station problem
, it is unbelievable the date and time KMTP sends at times, some times a year and / or months /and or / hours and / or minutes WRONG.
Surprise, right now KMTP date / time is correct.
The date / time comes from the stations as displayed by my HDTV. KGO is a minute or two slow right now.
