CFTO Fixed?

My Sanyo fixed itself last night.
All the scanning, deleting and trying to manually add it over the past 2 weeks did nothing.

CFTO's info just says DTV Program, so its not dynamic, but at least i get the CFTO ID.

If the PSIP is working propelry, it should always remap.

I've also noticed that many of the channels only say DTV program instead of identifying the name of the program.

Not on my set -- when I tune in 40-1, it comes in, then changes to 9-1.
Same thing when I tune in 40-3, it comes in, then changes to 9-1.
Same here...... Can't even force it to 40......... Samething for CBLT on 5 and 20. I have a Samsung SIR T-451 if it makes a difference.

How do you manually add it on the sammy 451 ? Mine just get stuck on 40-1 when you punch in 40. Is there a way to enter the sub channels ?

The frustrating thing is that it has been working fine on 9 for the longest time and now it disappeared on me.....

As far as I can see, I get only 40-1 or 9-1 -- no sub channels.

Don't ask me how but I managed to 40-3 and that is the only one that works for me for CTV.

I should crack open the manual but I just don't remember seeing how to enter the sub-channels or whatever you call that last digit.

I don't have the menus in front of me (whisper...I'm at work!), but hit the menu button, the last selection includes add or delete channels manually. Follow the directions.
OR, if your antenna uses a rotator, punch in the channel number on the Samsung, then call up the same menu as above, and go to signal strength. Rotate the antenna until you get the most bars. Above 4 or 5 you should tune in that channel. Once the Samsung is tuned in to a picture on that channel, it should save when you hit exit, it will say "Saving settings". 40 should automatically remap to 9. If it doesn't, then your signal probably isn't strong enough to lock in that channel. It could be your antenna direction???

CFTO-DT now working (sort of)

FYI I have found that using the HDTV wonder and setting the channel as physical channel 40, major channel 9 and subchannel -1 (first available), I am able to tune into CFTO-DT... sometimes. I just keep flicking back and forth until it works. Good enough to get me some Canadian Open golf this weekend anyway.

I find that I have to select channel 40 after manually entering the number in the channel setup. Then close the application and open it up again. 9-1 provides audio and never any video.

I don't think we've concluded that Samsung ATSC tuners have a similar glitch, but I hope Sammy owners will keep letting us know how it goes.
No problems with the 451. Remaps to 9-1 Okee Dokee!

Same here both 451 remaps to 9 once I do the channel scan.

Never had a problem with it other than when we were all having problems when it did revert back to 40-1 some time ago in the summer.

I don't know what's going on but now WGRZ DT is showing up on 2-2. 2-1 indicates no signal. Perhaps the heading on this thread should be "OTA Broadcasters shuffle channels and subchannels to the detriment of dumb tuners".
