After the Denver area switched to the digital signal we

After the Denver area switched to the digital signal we bought a new LG model RC897T DVD Recorder/VCR and a new LG model 32LK330-UB LCD TV and a new antenna from Radio Shack, the next to the most high-capacity one they sell, and new coax all around - not the el-cheapo ones, but the better quality ones. We aligned the antenna according to the on-line chart of where you bare VS where the transmitter is and sat back to enjoy. Everything works great except channel 4. Terrific picture and sound all around, but channel 4 freezes and pixelates often (like every time they snapped the ball during the Super Bowl) and stays gone for three to five seconds. At that time the signal strength goes from about 70% (as good as it gets) down to about 30% and sometimes to zero. The other channels live around 80% all the time, even the ones that live way up the dial. Denver has a big fancy mast on Lookout Mountain that is shared by a half-dozen stations and channel 4 is one of them. I installed a signal amplifier in the line even though the Radio Shack guy said I shouldn't need it and it makes very little difference regardless of where it is set on its gain control. There are no tall buildings between here and there, there is no bus that goes by, and there is no other signal being transmitted in my area that would interfere. I am out of ideas and my wife is driving me nuts about it. What can you do for me?

We're trying to use Roku on our Samsung TV with Verizon/Fios

Hi, We're trying to use Roku on our Samsung TV with Verizon/Fios feed. However, we're getting the message, "No devices found" for the HDMI connection. It worked 2 says ago. I don't know what changed.JA: What's the exact make and model of your television? And have you done any troubleshooting yourself?Customer: The TV is a Samsung LCD TV 46, model LN46C610N1F. I've disconnected and reconnected the HDMI and power cables at both ends, powered down and powered up, hit the "find device" option and nothing. I'm wondering if the HDMI cable might have gone bad.JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?Customer: The TV menu does work. We're able to watch the regular cable TV feed.JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?Customer: It started last night. We can't recall anything unusual happening right before the problem started. My wife tried to go to the Netflix feed and got the "no devices" message.JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?Customer: The device is a Roku 3 that we've had a year or two.

I have a Samsung Model # LN46A550P3FXZA Version AA02

Hello,I have a Samsung Model # LN46A550P3FXZA Version AA02 purchased 8/2008. It has an intermittent black screen on the right half side, from top to bottom. It could happen 3-4 times during a 1 hour show or never during a 1 hr show. If I hit the top middle very hard, it disappears. Then it may return in minutes or hours. I'm tired of getting up and down to hit the TV! :-) Can this be fixed? Is there a Samsung class action case for this? Thank you. John
