If you are in Baltimore and receiving ABC and CBS, but no NBC, it could be that you need to do a new channel search. In Baltimore, ABC and CBS use PSIP to renumber the stations while NBC (WBAL-DT) doesn't. Try tuning directly to WBAL-DT by inputting 59-1. Also, you should be able to get WBFF-DT on 46-1. All of these station broadcast from TV Hill, so if you can get one of them, they ought to all be coming in.
FYI, the 6000 box sees WBAL-DT on 59-2 vs. 59-1. It detects that 59-1 is a valid subchannel, but there is no active content. Different STBs seem to interpret subchannels in various ways, with or without PSIP.
Erick... I am in a similar bind right now. I recently got the DST-3000 and was able to receive all local channels except CBS (WCCO). The CBS feed is on the same tower as NBC and I was able to get NBC but not CBS. I thought it was the Toshiba for a while until someone suggested using regular old rabbit ears to see if I could pick up CBS (I am using a Radio Shack antenna in my attic). Sure, enough I was able to get CBS. So right now I am switching between antenna and rabbit ears until the antenna installer comes back.
Since you got NBC before, I would assume it's the antenna. Do what I did and try the rabbit ears to take the Toshiba out of the equation of pontential problems.
