In Washington DC area, I seem to be getting good OTA program guide info on the Toshiba DST-3000, but the Samsung SIR-T150 is not receiving/displaying OTA program guide info. Is this a known problem or an indication that I need to do a software update? Thanks, Tom

It sounds like you have the DST-3000 with DirecTV service or at least connected to a dish?


The DST gets guide info (and channel re-mapping) from DirecTV through the advanced program guide (APG). So, there is nothing wrong with your SIR-T150, just an added feature of the DST-3000. The guide info, even for non-DirecTV OTA stations, is coming from DirecTV -- not through the PSIP from OTA DTV. This is an added benefit of DirecTV subscriptions, to me.


If your DST-3000 isn't hooked up to a dish, then I'm obviously wrong.:confused:

Thanks Jason, You are right on target. I guess it is save to say that the Washington DC stations are not sending out a program guide via OTA. Thanks again, Tom
