That is IMO the correct fix. Since 95%+ of what we watch is over satellite, the Seiki's are not a problem for us now. I do have in mind replacing them with the 32" Samsung's at some point.

We replaced the living area and bedroom tv's with Samsungs that have digital tuners but no smart function, picked them up at Best Buy for $159 each on sale. I had to make some modifications to the mounts, Samsung uses larger bolts. More than doubled our reception of over the air channels from the antenna. At some point I will probably replace the outside tv as well. Better picture now, worth the investment for us!

We replaced ours with a Samsung 32" Smart tv 1080p last month. Was on sale at Costco for 179.99 and really like the picture. Who do you use for a satellite provider?

We use Direct, have the winegard SWM traveler mounted on the roof. Push one button, give it a few minutes and it locks onto the three required satellites for HD. Had it on our previous coach, had dealer add it to this one. The Seiki's actually do ok with and HDMI HD feed, though their max resolution is 720, not 1080, the difference is detectable but not noticeable without really looking.
