I imagine this is a long shot, but does anyone know of a way to use the OTA tuner in the Samsung TS160 without inserting a D* access card? I just signed up for the D* HD deal and they sent me a unit with a malfunctioning access card reader. They are replacing (after some hassle), but it won't be here until next week and the SuperBowl is tomorrow!


Thanks,


Larry

Do not know if it will work without card but go to Setup: Dish Setting: and tell the unit that you have no dish. I believe the selection is None. The unit will probably reboot then go to Setup: Antenna/Cable to scan in stations.

Yep, as edward3132 said.. I stuck the card in w/my ts-160 and selected no dish and was able to setup locals hd over ota, whereas my 1st try I didn't put the card in and tried to set up locals and i couldn't.

Hope i've been some help

Try puting the card in w/o activating it and go to settings as edward said (in case my prior post was confusing)

Thanks for the suggestions, but my problem is that the ts160 won't recognize when a card is in the card reader. So, all I get is a message to "Insert Access Card", even when I want to tune in an OTA station. It find's the signal no problem, but won't display without an access card in (or without being able to realize that my d$*& access card is already in).


Oh well, it looks like SD for the SuperBowl.
