    We've got a Samsung SIR-70 set up and I have it running to two TVs at my parents house. The main TV is connected by S-Video and the second TV is connected by Coax. I also have an over the air antenna plugged into the back of the reciever. On our old hitachi, there was a button labelled "input" on the remote which would switch the output of the coax wire running to the tv from the satellite to the Over the air antenna plugged into the back of the reciever. I've looked in the manual, tried every button on the remote, and looked through the menus but for the life of me I can't find the option that does the same thing on the Samsung. I assume it has to be in there otherwise there wouldn't be the hookup in the back. Anyone know how to do this?

    I think you have to turn the box off and use a coax connection to get over-the-air signals.

    Ah, so there's no actual switching mechanism in the samsung unlike our older hitachi. Oh well, that doesn't particularly help me then
