OTA feed into 9242 (others)
I know the 9242 is old(er), and that all of the newer receivers don't have the capability but I was wondering if anyone is able to get the OTA signals to feed into the 9242 as "advertised" (actually I don't think Bell "advertises" it or most features on the box) or is this a lost cause especially with the move to digital OTA. I thought I read somewhere that the tuner in the box was ATSC compatible. Anyways, I only recently picked up a 9242 (have 6131's) and was wondering about this capability, especially if you are able to record those channels.
A phone call to Bell support leaves me with "oh what's that!.... oh wait, let me talk to someone... oh we don't support that" which kind of gives me the idea that perhaps the feature is gone... as in we couldn't make it work so its an old box and service and we don't really care or maybe the support is ????... :-(
Anyways, right now, when I attempt to scan for local channels with the ant hooked up (was working to the tv), the 9242 starts for a "second" at channel 2 and then resets. :-( This is my second 9242 as Bell did replace my other unit ... but I never attempted to do this on the first unit so I don't really know if it ever worked.
Thanks for any comments or suggestions.
