    I have a Samsung wide screen TV (model 34Z6) which, when turned on, starts
    up in analog TV mode. We watch almost all our programs either from the set
    top box or DVD player, via S-video. Is there any way of setting the TV to
    start up in S-video mode? The manual makes no mention of that.

    When you turn off the set, are you turning off the AC (mains) to it?
    If so, only turn it off with the rempte or front panel button. Some
    people shut their TV with a wall switch. This is not good. Do not
    shut the AC power to the set with an external switch.

    Shutting the power to the set will force it to do a reset.

    If the set is being shut properly, and it is loosing set-ups it is
    possible that there is a defect, causing it to not remember where it
    was last set up to. In this case the set will need proper servicing.

    Most models of sets will remember how they were setup as long as the AC
    mains has never been disconnected.

    Thanks, Jerry,

    I am using the remote to turn it off, not the mains. Perhaps there is some
    mode the set has to be in to save the settings, but I sure can't see it in
    the manual.

    The remote for the tv set, not the set top box?

    The tv is not plugged into the set top bos is it?

    Yes I am using the remote for the TV - to change the TV mode from normal TV
    to S-Video, to which the STB is plugged in. The TV does recall what channel
    in the normal TV mode I left it at, but if I ended watching S-Video, it
    still defaults to normal TV when I get it out of standby next time.

    If the channel set up and user setup is remembered, in your case, this
    is a characteristic in the set's internal software design.

    There is nothing you can do, unless you can have a different ROM from
    the manufacture. This type of modification is something that the
    service rep can not do themselves, unless available from the

    I have seen this on a number of models from a number of different
