Mine *usually* plays mpeg2 content ok. Sometimes I get a generic  
"unsupported data" or "corrupt data" and no idea why. Also, any HD  
will play video with no audio stream. This is all OTA content. I've  
tried on a plethora of stations all with the same issue. I just  
haven't complained about it since I can't fix it and can't be bothered  
to look into why it's happening.

Mine found it in a few seconds, but I put my PS3 on the same switch as  
my myth boxes. Not sure if that has anything to do with it. Now that  
it knows about it, the response time is pretty fast.
