Been reading posts in this thread with interest. Have had 32D5U now for 2 weeks. No locking problems, assuming that means a freezing of the video feed. What I have exp'd, have been unable to figure out, is complete loss of digital OTA signals broadcasted by KABC-DT in Los Angeles.
No problem for 1st week, but 3-4 days ago, signal disappeared, not just for 7.1, but also 7.2 & 7.3. Get all other channels, with minor exception to KCOP (Ch 13), which is weak @ sometimes. Typical signal strength across all "VHF channel" stations averages 62-68, but KABC is now zero, nada. At first thought it might be a KABC-DT transmission issue, but now wondering whether it's a TV tuner issue. Any ideas?
Have the TVOS incorporated into TV, & I must say it's a complete piece of crap . . . as it commands too much control of the TV -- had to connect analog OTA to receive TVOS listings via analog PBS (KCET-LA). Subscribe to DTV, so no TVOS download via cable card. Also, am able to receive KABC-DT via DBS, but occasionally get a split-second of blank screen. So, @ 1st thought transmission problem, but now have identified dish alignment problem, which DTV will fix in a few days. Bottom line, I'm @ a complete loss as to where my OTA reception went for KABC-DT (Chs 7.1, 7.2, 7.3). Any insight, comments, appreciated. TIA.
