    Of all the new HD channels, it seems like USA is the *only* one that ever gives me any trouble. Here's what happens ...

    When I go directly to the channel ... or go via the guide ... 99% of the time I get a "Searching for Signal on Tuner 1" (sometimes it may say Tuner 2). Then, I go up one channel and back to USA HD and it works fine.

    No other channels exhibit this quirk. Has anyone else seen this?

    No issues with tuning USAHD, but last night I got quite a few decode errors. They included drop outs in sound and pixelation of image. This was during the movie Face/Off

    I'll check tomorrow and let you know ...

    However, if it was a transponder issue, wouldn't I have trouble receiving the channel even *after* I flip up one channel and then back down (which I don't)?

    That is sounding more like a tuner issue....possible difference in sensitivity between tuner 1 and 2....or possibly something off with one of the BBCs.

    My dad's H20 receives all of the the HD channels except USA-HD! Tech support can't figure it out.
