    I am having the same problem with my new samsung (about 10 months old) and when I called samsung, they asked me if I can call back in a month. I don't think so. I will be calling again on Monday and will try to get to the bottom of this. If anyone knows how to fix this, please let us know. Thank you.

    I recently had the same problem and through self-troubleshooting i think it might actually be the cable box. When i switch hdmi inputs the "2" follows..... This all occured after our power flickered friday morning, Definitely did something to box because my power on channel is now reset!

Because the issue is occurring in multiple brands of TVs, mine is a Samsung plasma, the element that is linking all the issues together is the cable and/or SATELLITE boxes. I have actually called Samsung and they disavow any responsibility for the 2 and say that it is a cable issue. I have to agree. THE SOLUTION is to replace the cable box with a new box. I just did this last week and the 2 was gone. So if you are having this problem then i recommend trying the same thing. REPLACE YOUR CABLE BOX and/or SATELLITE TV BOX AND THE 2 GOES AWAY...at least it did for me.

Some how i fixed the problem. Problem is not TV based. I think its cable box based because PC source did not have number 2 in the corner.

1) I recently installed new hdmi cable and not disconnectted old ones. so i unconnected old cables

2) Turned cable box off and unplugged it for 30 secs and allowed it to restart.

3) When the cable box restarted, the cable setting went to 480p. ug I went through settings to Display/ Output resolution. I unselected 480p and selected 1080i and then selected 720p. Note at this time dots should be next to 480p and 1080i. Exited and no number 2 in the corner.


good luck.

Hi - My name is Tina and I am with Suddenlink. Are you receiving your channels over the air (without a cable box)? If so, that is the way they are broadcast over the air in digital/high definition from the broadcasters and without converting them (with a cable box) there isn't anything that can be done to fix this issue. If you add a cable box to your set, then the box can convert the channels without the dashes. Plase feel free to contact me directly at tina-AT-suddenlink-DOT-com for further assistance. Thank you.
