Unfortunately, none of these methods seem to work on my Mits. And worse than that, it seems that once the TV has chosen a TVGOS host channel, that is the only channel it will ever look at for TVGOS data for the life of the set. (Well maybe if I do a total system reset on the TV, but then again, maybe not.)
Anyway, it's been over 3 weeks since I've been able to get any TVGOS updates on the V-9.1.56 Mits. All this time, my Sony DHG's continue to update fine (at least for 5-6 days of data). The problem is that Charter cable in my area stopped passing TVGOS data 3 weeks ago. The data is still available OTA, from analog PBS and from digital CBS. The DHG's have switched over and are getting the data from OTA analog PBS. The Mits is stuck on (cable) analog PBS and apparently will not search anywhere else for data. I have tried disabling TVGOS in the setup three times overnight, and then turning it back on the following day. When I turn it back on, the channel lineup is still there, and when I look at diagnostics it still shows analog PBS as the host. Listings show as "pending". They will be "pending" until doomsday if it doesn't go search for a new host.....................
