Re: New Silicondust LTE Filter

On the base that that same chips, used in cellphones don't get "overloaded".

Re: Remove channels from HDHomerun view app

Go to my.hdhomerun.com, click on your channel count, and click the star next to the channel twice to turn it to an X to disable it. You can also disable by going into the app settings, Channels, and turning channels off there. Nick I didn't realize I had to double-click on those. First click adds i...

Remove channels from HDHomerun view app

In my area (23608), the view app shows there are two stations receiving the same program: Virtual 22 and 27
However the 22 has no signal, is not even in the area. Scanning with HDHomerun Setup on the same PC doesn't show the 22.
How do I delete the 22 from the view app lineup?

Re: New Silicondust LTE Filter

Unless running an amplifier at the antenna. The filter should go upstream of the amp so that the amp doesn't get over driven. You won't overdrive a modern amplifier with the antenna signal. Otherwise all the cellphones would be "overdriven". I installed mine at the output of the antenna a...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

The SD app has sound. Not sure if that's decoded in Windows or in their app.
The HVEC extension I got free somehow.

Re: AC-4 Audio?

I should had said "free". Windows 10 indeed supports ATMOS, with the Dolby Access app in MS store.
That's a 30 day free trial, but after that is $14.99.

PS: I think that supports only Realtek HDAudio, not other sound devices (like HDMI audio).

Re: Signal strength for antenna aiming?

Install the Windows app (not the Windows 10 store one) from here: https://www.silicondust.com/support/downloads/ In the folder C:\Program Files\Silicondust\HDHomeRun you will see the "hdhomerun_config_gui.exe" Use it while the desired channel is playing and find which tuner is in use. It w...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Atmos is pushed on more and more phones, tablets, TV's, sound bars... Only the PC speakers will remain not covered.
For a while.

Re: ATSC 3.0 signal quality VS ATSC

I am at 23608 zip code. Right at the fringe of "green" reception, 85-105 dbuV/m based on FCC maps, with 15' cable and I am splitting the cable between two SD devices.
The ATSC 3.0 signal level from above is at only 81 dbuV/m.

Re: W7 WMC scanning channels

That's the usual dis-interest of MS in WMC I guess...
Like the fact that DP is not recognized as HDCP capable, only HDMI. So I could not use a Quadro P620 with CableCard DRM, had to buy a GT1030.

Re: W7 WMC scanning channels

I have added them manually. The station was on Ch 13 (UHF) before, now is aligned on 11.
I use epg123 of course.

Thanks!

W7 WMC scanning channels

Any ideas why ONE station won't come in the scanning the OTA channels?
I have two tuners and with the SD apps, I can see all the channels, I can play channel 13.1-13.5, but the WMC doesn't find the ABC Chanel 13.1-13.5 (physical channel 11 VHF).

Re: Video quality upgrade

the 50 vs 60 has nothing to do with protectionism. It stems from when CRT and bad harmonious effects of powering from a mains AC supply at 50Hz. The 50Hz mains synchronizer wasn't uses since... first tube TV's era. Even the second gen tube TVs had passed that limitation, managing to reliably extrac...

Re: Video quality upgrade

Any data points on how 1080i 50Hz AVC channels are handled, since that would be the prevailing HD video format outside North America? The rest of the world TV should get on board with 60FPS. All their phones, tablets, computers displays (since CRT time) are at 60Hz. Even their flat screen TVs have ...
