Question about Televison & Video
Are you connected to a cable box from your cable TV service Provider and use this device to select the channel you want to view? I have an HDTV which has the QAM tuning feature. Changing channels was instant until I accepted an offer from Cablevision for a 1 year rent free box and remote combo. The tuning box is a digital & analog Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4200 HD with a card slot for your subscription specs. This bypasses the tuner in your TV and the TV functions as a monitor.
If this is similar to what you have and you don't care about the channel/current program on screen display that appears for several seconds before the channel selection completes, perhaps the cable co. can adjust your box to supress this display if it will speed up the channel selection.
There is another annoying problem with this box. If you have a fraction of a second ac power interruption which might not even cause your computer to reboot, the cable box goes into a reinitialization that could take 5 minutes or longer. In my opinion, it is not worth the $6.50 per month charge we will receive when the year is up.
