that is really interesting that you have the same issue on a totally different brand of HD STB.
Just to confirm what is happening, Ch 5 and 50 are picked up ok in a channel scan. Ch 5 can be viewed in SD but as soon as Ch 50 is selected the sceen goes blank and the audio continues for about 5 seconds then stops ... then nothing.
When I bring up info it says '0 x 0 i'
I have tried picking it up off Tuggeranong Hill with no success. (in fact the antenna is a band 5 UHF pointed right at the stick but the scan usually picks up VHF Ch 6 off Black Mountain first as the scan starts at the bottom and works up. Signal strength is the max and quality is only one bar off the top. Who says you need the correct type of antenna corectly aligned to get digital!)
As it isn't working off Tuggeranong Hill I haven't condemed the STB just yet as, if it is the same as the Analogue path, this Translator just takes an off air feed from Black Mountain. If the is a problem in the HD off air signal from Black Mountain then the Tuggeranong translator would only repeat it.
So would be very interested to see if others, with the same brands of HD STB as TEAC and LG are having the same problem with TEN HD in Canberra.
Other than this I am very happy with the TEAC and want to confirm the problem is with it before I seek a refund/exchange.
Thanx everyone for your help.
