Channel numbers have to be entered manually.
Well, here's another one of those that makes you laugh, then cry! One reviewer on Sams Club website said: "One issue is in selecting a DTV channel, the quick timeout value means that you have to quickly enter the number, which is very hard to do one handed. I am not sure of why they don't allow the use of the up/down left/right buttons when watching the TV, such as to select the channel. I suspect that they could have reduced the buttons if they had planned it better." More observant users will probably notice, right away, that it has a long, dedicated rocker button with a "CH" between + and - symbols which should be obvious it has something to do with CHannels... like maybe scroll thru them up and down!? Oh, wait, I suppose some people COULD think the "CH" is for ordering "CHinese" food, but even then you'd think they'd just HAVE TO try the button and see if a takeout menu pops up on screen?
