Samsung LN40A500 - unable to receive DTV channel for MPT??

by mlianto / January 1, 2009 7:58 AM PST

Hello,we just got Samsung LN40A500 and very happy with the deal and also all the features. We connected the TV to our newly bought outdoor HD Antenna. The Auto Programing memorized all the signals in no time, very fast in comparison to our other LCD TV - Sharp LC32SB21U.
However, one disappointment is that Samsung failed to detect Maryland Public Television - Ch.22 DTV signal. It only detected the Analog signal for that Channel. I re-run the Auto Programing several times, but it still didn't pick up the signal while our Sharp picked up the other 3 DTV channels for MPT. With Sharp we got, 22, 22-1, 22-2, 22-3.

Does anyone ever encounter this issue and know the solution? thanks.
