I've discovered another quirk, however, and this one concerns powering on. Whenever I turn on the TV and DirecTV at the same time, using one button on the DirecTV remote, the F38310 always starts up on an OTA channel, even if I power down in component. I haven't been able to find a setting to change this. Does anyone know?
P.S. - After seven years, I just discover new tweaks to make my set even better. Amazing. This forum is GREAT!
I know there is a way to do it, I have done it, although I got a new set in November & my 38310 is in the other room unplugged.
If I recall, I used the Info, Menu-OK and right side of volume (plus)
Then in that menu that pops up go to channel hold->press the right arrow so the "tune to" box is highlighted
Press the OK button on the remote until "DIRECTV" is the choice
then go down to the box below & press the OK button on the remote until "after 5 min." is the choice
then scroll down to "Clear" & hit OK on the remote NOT DONE??? don't ask me why
then exit out of the menu, what ever input it was on when you turned off the TV will be what it is on when you turn it back on.
Also make sure the remote is set to TV, hold your hand over the eye & hit TV or you will not be able to move the choices around with the remote.
PS I went in & pluged in the TV because this was very frustrating to me, my sat box was connected to the component inputs & everytime I turned on the TV it was on VID1 input.
If this doesn't work pm me & I will check again on how to do it.
