    Hi all

    We've a weird problem with our Toshiba LCD TV that I wonder if anyone has
    had experience with. When we program the channels, we select those that we
    want from the automatically found ones, and delete the others. All works OK
    until a few random days later the deleted ones come back, so that we have
    say six different channel 7 as we rotate around what we thought were our
    favourites. We fix this up by again deleting the unwanted ones and all is
    well again for a few days, and then randomly the set again gives us
    everything it can receive, whether or not we have deleted them.
  2. Sounds like the problem I used to have on several Thomson STB's. Never
    found the cause, but a cold reset to factory defaults and rescanning
    usually fixed the problem for 6 months or so. PITA it was.

    It also sounds like an issue I've seen on the X series Sony Bravia.
    The chanel up/down button scans through the programed favourites ok,
    unless you accidentally jump direct to a channel, and then the up/down
    button seem to change mode and switches through every channel. To fix
    it you have to use the menu to jump to a favouties channel. There
    appears to be no way to permanently delete a channel. Another real
    PITA. My S series Bravia does not have the issue.

    Thanks for that Dave. I reached a techo at Toshiba this morning and told him
    my woes. He suggested that what is happening might be a momentary loss of
    signal strength on one of the favourite channels. Apparently what happens
    then is that the set overrides the deletions and looks for an alternative.
    Since I have an intermittent on the phantom amp (dry joint) this is
