Unfortunately, I'm only able to speak on U.S. products. The best route to find the answer to this inquiry would be to contact the Samsung customer service center in the region where the television was purchased. I just don't know how the broadcast system is set to work with the TV, and what options are available.
I bought a series 5 C530 samsung lcd tv yesterday in Vietnam. My old tv can detect hbo, cinemax and other channels and has been working ok for 4 years. When they connected the samsung tv and performed auto scan or search it doesn't seem to detect those movie channels, instead, it only gets the local analogue channels. I already confirmed with the cable service provider that signal is ok. I also notice that when it is performing auto scan or search, the mode is "Analogue". My setting is set to "Asia". Are there any more settings I need to configure to change this setting or to be able to detect those channels.
