i just saw a post which I believe will solve my problem (I connected to the wrong coax antenna plug). I haven't tried, but I'm pretty sure that is the problem.
Here's the post from akai_owner from 2007:
Look at the back of your TV. Make sure your cable is hooked up to connector on far right, NOT the far left. (For analog cable TV.)
Push "source" button on remote or side of TV to cycle through TV inputs. Wait one second between pushes. You want to stop just before the source that displays "AV" on TV screen. It should show a number, for the current channel number.
If you are using an analog cable box, try setting the TV channel to 3 or 4. If you use no cable box, try changing channels on TV to find an active one. If no luck, make sure your cable service is active (subscription active). Cable companies disconnect it between residents of an apartment/house.

It sounds like it is loseing signal, check your connections, and make sure you have the correct cable

There does not seem to be a fix for this at this time and the software version may need to be updated. My set is the same...takes a long time to warm up and encode. Once its warm its perfect slow to tune but perfect with signal levels 63 to 78% the picture is stable and error free across all channels. One dead pixel in a 3 year old panel not too bad.
