Can someone plug their coaxial local cable TV provider directly to TV, scan for channels and tell me if their getting all their local major TV stations/channels?
Got the 55LM8600 already ran into an issue with Cable DTV Auto Tuning only finds 44 channels the 55LM7600 finds 50 channels. I only care that I'm not getting channels 5, 7 & 11. Los Angeles / Charter Communications Cable. The built-in TV tuner is not decoding clearQAM unencrypted channels correctly.
I'm thinking it's either firmware not decoding/tuning channels correctly, defective tuner or tuner is different from LM7600?
55LM8600 (latest firmware 03.01.34)
5-1 KTLA/The CW (Missing / Not Found)
7-1 ABC (Missing / Not Found)
11-1 FOX (Missing / Not Found)
This TV is going back to Amazon since I got the LM8600 cheaper from Amazon.
55LM7600 (latest firmware 03.20.31)
5-1 KTLA/The CW
Update: To be more technical my 55LM8600 can't tune/decode or pickup a few unencrypted QAM256 signals.http://www.silicondust.com/hdhomerun...lineup_8307348
I manually hit the remote icon top right corner of screen, manually tune to a QAM channel like ABC channel 7.1 I would input 91-431 I get no signal. I move that same coaxial cable to my previous 55LM7600 and it works fine.
