I have the Samsung 360 STB with my local cable provider also hooked into the STB. I've set up my 360 to include my cable companies channel lineup in the guide, etc. My question is with regards to the local channels that DTV also provide (I sub to the DTV Locals add-on). Is there a way to instruct the STB to tune into the DTV local feed as opposed to my cable's? For example, where I live in L.A., channel 2 is CBS (actually, KCBS). When I tune to channel 2 on the STB both via channel guide and direct input, it always tunes into the feed from cable. I know this because my cable signal is crappy due to multiple splits, etc., and has moving horizontal banding artifacts. There's no 2.1, 2.2, or anything like that to choose between the two. Now, I know that I can tune into the national DTV feeds, which use the L.A. stations, in the 380's, but that only covers the major networks; I've got my independant local stations that I'd like to view. On my old, old DTV box, my locals were in the 900's where I had all my locals (not just the national networks). I'm guessing the 360 is remapping my DTV locals to the 2 thru 13 range, which is where my cable co. is also providing the stations. Anyhow, is there any way to instruct the STB which input to use for my locals in 2 thru 13?
Needless to say, I'd like to use the DTV locals not only because I'm paying for them but also because, as I described above, my cable signal is crappy.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance and sorry for the long-winded post.
