No problem, now that I understand how it works. Can't blame them for not wanting to need another firmware change on the whim of the US Congress.
I got a cheap passive antenna from Radio Shack, which pulls in all my local stations fine. Despite your information that the intermittent audio problem effects both cable and OTA, my experience so far is that OTA the audio is completely reliable.
My understanding is this has to be a software issue. No subcarriers to fail to lock. As far as the hardware goes, either the signal is there or it isn't (except in a narrow window where the error rate increases exponentially) and since the picture is flawless, it is. When they finally fix it I may switch back to cable.
Oh, I tried to open that silent recording in "Video Redo" which, I believe, can select different audio streams. It said "unable to open [path\
ame]. No Pids specified". It plays silently in VLC media player which, in my experience, plays anything that can be played. No hint of the missing audio, though.
