I have 67 analog cable channels, 10 ClearQAM cable channels, and 6 HDTV broadcast channels, over cable, as well as 38 ClearQAM music channels.
I never have to rescan. My picture looks great overall, too, especially after making adjustments through the service menu.

Hoping someone out there can help me clear an issue I'm having with my 30"...
My cable company (Comcast) specifically states that "HD local broadcast signals are included with Basic Service subscription and HD cable box (see equipment pricing)."
Now, unless I'm wrong, the Sanyo takes care of the HD cable box side of things with its tuner. I have the Basic Service subscription, which I have split into the digital and analog tuners, but I am currently only able to get NBC and PBS in hi-def. I can get ABC digitally, but not in hi-def, and FOX and CBS are nowhere to be found.
Is it possible that Comcast's HD cable box is necessary to descramble the HD signals? If so, why would I be able to get NBC? A large part of the reason I got this TV (especially the 30" version) was to watch HDTV, but I am also a cheap bastard (another reason I got this tv) and I refuse to pay for something I should be able to get anyway.
Any ideas out there for grabbing the other HD channels without paying for Comcast's box (I've already tried an old UHF antenna I had in the attic, as well as Radioshacks 15-1880, neither of which reliably grabbed me anything but NBC).

What type of input are you using for your DVD player (DVI, component, S-video)? Are you playing DVDs directly from your game box or an individual DVD player?
I had a similar issue...faint banding (not green) going across the screen while watching DVDs through component. I switched to s-video and it was gone. I also run my HD cable box through component without any problems so I assume the issue is with the output from my DVD player...I'm using s-video for now.

Can we combine the cable coax and the OTA antenna coax via a "reverse splitter" and feed them both into the digital coax connector and get HD channels from both? I am guessing that they have different channel numbers.

No because they occupy some of the same frequencys. All it would do is mess up the cable on the same frequences as your ota channels. You can get an a-b switch, plug both in and switch back and forth. The tv will remember the stations from the ota scan and the cable scan, so you just have to switch it in the menu when you switch the a-b switch. You don't have to do a rescan, just change it from ota to cable in the digital channel menu.

1. Im using Monster component cables.
2. My DVD player is my Xbox
3. I pre-ordered a Samsung DVD player (DVD-HD941) that will be released (hopefully) this week, and I will be connecting it to the tv via HDMI. Think that will solve the problem?
