Re: My new 6120

Well I hooked up the new 6120 today ... I scanned for my ota stuff and picked up all my Buffalo stations plus Toronto 1 from Hamilton transmitter. Heres where I noticed the biggest difference. Most of these stations almost look Hidef,the only difference was the sidebars.

Can you ellaborate further on your OTA HD reception please. You say that most of the stations look almost HiDef - how are the hidef ones?

Are you still not seeing any of their programming info in the guide?

All the Buffalo stations are hd with UPN and WNLO supposedly going later this year. Yes the hd stations look very good.

There is no info in the guide yet for locals. It is supposed to be rectified in the next firmware upgrade,but do not know a date as of yet.
As a certain MR Burns might say. "Excellenttttt"

Hooked up my 6100 last night and everything works like a charm. The one thing I couldn't figure out was how to get the receiver into SD mode. The remote has a HD/SD button but it does not appear to work. Called Expressvu and spent an hour on the phone to find out they didn't know either. Anybody have any experience in this area yet. When you push the info button, on the screen appears the HD and the SD logos, with the receiver on the HD logo along with the aspect ratio that you have chosen. The SD logo is unchecked with aspect ratio of normal.
I was looking at this too and I think the HD / SD "logo" you are seeing is intended to show you what mode the incoming signal is in (when you first engage that channel) and it doesn't behave in a consistent manner. You'll see this if you go from a HD channel to and SD one the "highlight" may or may not still show HD. I just ignore it and if need be use the * button to change the zoom mode.
Low Audio levels

Anybody else notice that the audio level coming from the 6100 is low. I have a 400 watt audio system (no TOSlink) and I pretty much have this cranked to max to get 'loud' volume out of this system. Is there some way to boost it?
