I second complaint number two above. I don't listen to much of the music so I can't say one way or the other about number three. And I must be one of the few people in the whole world that does NOT have a problem with the fan. It's on all the time, yes, but it's not overly loud in my opinion. Of course, my PC is in the same room and its fan drowns out the HD-100 fan....
My only real remaining complaint is no OTA/cable guide info; I'm concerned that nobody has heard anything from Sony on this (unlike the dropout issue, which got a lot of attention). I (literally) removed the fan noise problem!
I have the Samsung SIR-T150 and it's programming guide does not work for the most part. Sometime PBS or WB may show something at the current time slot. Thus, I believe it may be a Broadcasters issue that will be solved in the future.
Inability to extract Station ID from PSIP stream, everything shows up as DIGT and can't be changed manually.
PSIP channel numbers change from scan to scan, sometimes will be on the remapped channel, sometimes on the UHF channel.
Cannot properly handle multiple subchannels on the same frequency. Sometimes it continually flips between subchannels, in other cases it shows the wrong programming with the wrong subchannel.
No way to manually add a station by tuning to it, must do a scan.
Media Window doesn't show picture except for Standard def DirectTV channels. Coupled with the lack of APG, it makes the guide pretty useless for anything other than basic DirecTV.
As mentioned above, no implementation of the APG, they rely on PSIP instead which no-one is really broadcasting.
Maybe not a bug, but annoying:
No way to find out whats coming up next without changing the current channel as you surf the guide. I want to keep the video/audio for the program I'm watching while selecting what I want to watch next. In fact the whole thing is backwards, the Index function shows what else is on now and thats where I want it to change channels, the Guide is where I'm planning ahead and don't want it to change.
My biggest issue is the low tolerance for a signal lock on distant off air stations. My SONY has trouble staying locked on any signal below 80 out of 100.
I was receiving no program guide info until this week when my local ABC affiliate began experimenting with his PSIP encoding in an attempt to get all the STB's working regardless of the brand. I now receive program title and time and an occasional description. They said they will continue tweaking with the feedback they receive from this forum. I no longer blame SONY alone for this problem.
