"Not Supported Mode" Message...

Using this unit with Verizon FiOS cable service. Today (11/3/07) turned on the TV to find a "Not Supported Mode" message for the input coming from the HD/DVR unit. Checked into some support sites and found that this problem seems to be fairly common when the screen is used with a computer, and can be adjusted through the computer's monitor settings--mine has never been hooked up to a computer.

So far, I have disconnected/reconnected the power & all of the cable connections. A thousand thanks to anyone who knows how to clear this!

Your tv does NOT support any higher than 720p res.
Is your cable box set to this? If not, and it is set to 1080i than it would explain this, and is also a common problem with computer(vga) connections even with monitors. To see the current resolution the box is set to hook up a yellow jack to the to from cable box just to get the picture back long enough to navigate to a setup menu and lower the resolution back to the highest supported which is 720p

I got a hd box and the channels keep cuttin out

Hello, I actually install HD boxes for Verizon Fios. If your video signal is too low, you will notice "Pixellation" (Those weird square boxes that come and go) and in some cases, you will not even be able to receive some channels at all. HD channels use much more bandwidth than standard definition channels. The good news....there's a fix. If you use standard cable (Not Fios) you can buy a signal booster. These can be purchased at best buy, Radio Shack, etc. It is a powered device that plugs into an outlet (110v) You take your cable company's input or "Feed" run it into the booster, connect the power, and the run a coax cable out of the booster and into your splitter. Assuming all of your cabling is up to par, this will fix your problem. If you have Verizon Fios, you must call and have us come out as our tv service uses "Moca" and cannot be boosted with a store bought unit. I hope this helps.

HDTV goes blank when connected to Fios HD-DVR or Fios DTV recvr.

If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.

I can't turn my TV off with the Verizon FIOS universal remote.

Try the following codes. I know you stated that you were given codes so ignore any that you already have tried:

Verizon FIOS
Vizio 0891, 0912,1783

Alternative Codes
1758, 0178, 1756, 0128, 0117, 1017, 1078, 0030, 0056, 0205, 1292, 0057

Zoom Function and Verizon Fios TV

On the verizon FIOS tv box, turn the FIOS STB on, and turn on the tv, tap the following buttons on the Verizon FIOS STB )in this order) 1-Power, then Select, then Menu. This will bring up the FIOS STB HD options. Arrow down to 4:3 Bypass and set the bypass option to 480P. Hit power 2 times, once to turn off, second time to turn STB back on. This should on standard channels give you the zoom feature back. This worked on my Samsunf 5053 TV model.

"Not supported Mode" message

Hook up the component cables on the tv and the dtv box
go to set up on the menu select HDTV or display and deselect all of the 480i and 480p and in some cases also the 720 and only select 1080i to be display. you can then hook up your hdmi cable again and it shoud be supported. Let me know if that works.
