So it looks like it's the directv box as a switch to tv tuner eliminated issue. Ugh.

come on now. :) OTA is through the DirecTV AM21 OTA tuner, but through their DVR. Oddly, the OTA source (via the DirecTV receiver) is the more frequent offender.

I'll try the TV tuner soon.

Source is mostly a DirecTV HR44 through a denon 2112 via HDMI. Impacts both dbs and OTA signal sources.

I seem to remember this following across to the TV's OTA tuner, too, but I haven't looked...

Has anyone seen behavior like this? Tempted to try the Vizio CS route, but want to see if this is common at all, first.

That's the problem - the inaccessable line is the one going up the former side of the house. A temp run would be stupidly long.

I think I might just try my luck at a new connector. Cross fingers!

Keep tripping preamps - could a (bad) crimp connector cause this?

So, I had an "old" 7777 fry on me last year, and I've since seen my newer RCA TVPRAMP1R act similarly. I was willing to chalk up to coincedence (and, well, RCA...), and then...

We had a power...

FINALLY got the new 1.6 on my old-1.6-bitten M55-b2. A little early to report, but looking good so far. Will play some this weekend :)

same weird yahoo update thing on my M55. Still also waiting for update.

Updated my router's firmware right before, so was sure it was implicated. Glad it's not.

The main "fix" is the fact that on/off for active "sticks" - i honestly couldn't care less as to whether it works, as it looks better (to me) without it.

Still waiting on my M55.

Is there any way to disable the wifi on the M55? It's driving me nuts, as it's taking a full 40 mhz width from a pretty crowded 2.4ghz spectrum around me.

I went as far as to factory reset with...

Man, I hope this is right. Biggest TV viewing weeks of year forthcoming (we're a big NCAA tourney house), and this couldn't come at a better time. Wonder if they need a beta tester? :)
