Am I reading the manual that came with the OTA module right? It says I have to manually tune in each OTA station. My DTC-100 does that automatically. What's going on? Is this another reason that the DTC-100 is still the King?

Yes, the inability of the 8VSB module for the model 6000 to automatically scan for stations really blows! The GUI has taunted me with an inoperable "scan" button for months.


I have no idea how Joe Six-pack would be able to add digital TV stations since they generally seem to be a secret. (The analog counter-part stations rarely ever mention their digital sibling . . . perhaps the FCC should create some rules that require the analog stations to hourly mention their digital counter-part stations during station ID breaks to help facilitate the A/D change-over.) TV program guides (printed and electronic) also rarely ever contain the programming for the digital stations. They could at least make a combined analog/digital listing if space is the issue.


If it wasn't for sites like: http://www.metronet.com/~chipk/tv-listings.html

How would I know how to use the "Add DTV" menu button?

Are you really able to use autoscan in Santa Cruz? I'm surprised. Maybe you live on a mountaintop?


I didn't miss autoscan at all in my location, since I had to very carefully align the antenna to get acceptable reception. If I had pointed it in the general direction and hit the autoscan button, it probably would not have found anything.

You have a right to install OTA and dish antennas on property under your control.

BarryO,


My autoscan on the DTC-100 picks up about 8-10 stations, one of them digital. The 6000 OTA will be installed (by me) in South San Jose at a friends house. Hopefully the NAB web site is accurate as to the digital channel numbers and it will go quickly.

Sorry, I forgot to add the http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif


I'm waiting too, although I guess I am lucky, I got all my stations in in about 5 minutes after putting up a Terk TV50 in the attic. I am really more interested in the AR control that might be in the new SW.
