What essential feature is missing from this Samsung Monitor/TV?

KISS, that's just a link to the manual/support. Which bug/feature do you mean?

OK, the missing bug/feature is the inability to add channels, so you can't point your antenna in one direction and "re-scan" and then point in another and "update". There is a mention of an "auto-delete" that's run after a scan which can be aborted. The purpose, it seems is to remove "scrambled" channels.

I haven't checked if of other Samsung TV's have this bug too.

My low-cost CECB (Coupon Eligible Converter Box) which was used to ease the conversion to DTV in the US has this functionality. With my CECB, I can also use the remote to select a "scanned and stored" virtual channel OR input the real channel number and the corresponding virtual channel will appear.

Annoying things with my CECB's which are all dtx9950: www/dsconverter.com
1) No NTSC mode with volume control - OK, cost issue)
2) With an EPG (Electronic Program Guide) displayed, channel selection is disabled.
3) With signal strength displayed, channel selection is disabled.

Comments? I guess everyone has cable?

So no 'bug' at all, it's working EXACTLY how a digital TV is supposed to :D

Nah I have stations from basically two directions. Basically 92 and 46 degrees. 6 stations, say * 3 digital channels each, could mean a loss of 18 channels. There are about 16 real channels at say 3 virtual channels each, in the most used orientation.

My $50 government approved box designed to convert off the air DTV (NTSC/8VSB) signals to channel 3/4 NTSC or composite video has the re-scan, update and edit.
Edit is more of a "soft edit". They remain in the channel list, but get skipped with channel up/dn. They can easily be re-enabled without re-scanning. It might be useful to remove stations that broadcast only in Spanish for me.
