Re: State of the HDHomeRun Apps on various devices.

I did get the IOS app updated on my ipad and iphone. It does play video now on my live and recordings for 3.0 stations, sadly there doesn't seem to be any sound with the video.
Still waiting for the pushing out of the update on my fireTV, so far its still only seeing the version from June.

Re: State of the HDHomeRun Apps on various devices.

Are there any updates on progress being made on the various viewing apps supporting the 3.0 streams. My IOS devices and fireTV stick still don't seem to support them. Only my PC and LG TV.

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

I updated my connect, but I am reluctant to do a rescan of the channels since right now with only the ATSC 1.0 channels all my apps work. I think some of the apps still don't support the 3.0 streams (fireTV, IOS, etc). I am going to hold of doing a rescan until I know those all support the 3.0 strea...

State of the HDHomeRun Apps on various devices.

It would be nice to have some postings listing the state of the HDHomeRun viewing apps for the various devices/platforms for viewing HEVC/3.0 content. I know that that the app on my windows PC has been updated and works. It also works on my LG TV, but doesn't work on my firestick and iPhone. Perhaps...

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

Anyone know what's going on today with Portland? None of the ATSC 3.0 virtual channels are tuning; everything was working great yesterday and last night! Nothing has changed on this end... I am seeing the same thing at 8:32 pm Tuesday. I have made no changes to any of my configuration. Things worke...

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

How about using a trailing 0 on the virtual subchannel in the channel list for the ATSC3 tuner? That way, the user can make a choice which tuner to use via the guide. For example: 8.1 = use any of the available ATSC1 tuners for virtual 8.1 8.10 = use any of the available ATSC3 tuners for virtual 8....

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

There has been lots of discussion the lack of AC-4 audio streams in many apps, which helps explain why VLC plays video fine but there is no audio. But does this also explain why the HDHomeRun app on my PC, Mac and Firestick don't even play the video? On my PC it might play the video in a choppy mann...

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

which many of the devices you mentioned may support if recent hardware, early firetv and ios devices might not, same goes for pc but for that to be an issue hardware would be even more "ancient". My Amazon FireTV units are the more recent 4K versions (a year or two old). I just installed the HomeRu...

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

An interesting update on the HEVC experience: Things seem to work properly on my LG television with the HD HomeRun App!!! Both watching the live broadcast of a channel, such as 8.1 seems to work. Also recordings on my Servio of HEVC broadcasts are also playable on the LG. On all the other ways I hav...

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

I noticed today (10/17/2020) on http://my.hdhomerun.com/ page that there is a red X next to the firmware version for my Connect 4K indicating a new firmware available so I downloaded the latest version of the setup program and updated my firmware. So now what I see with the HD Home Run App on my win...

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

I have updated my unit to the latest firmware. As another poster mentioned, I do see the HEVC indicator next to some of the channels. Also as the earlier poster mentioned, now the streaming doesn't work of those channels that display the symbols. If I use the HDHomeRun PC App they briefly come up ch...

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

I'll add that there are currently no 4K resolution broadcasts in Portland. KATU, KPTV, and KPDX are native 720p, and KOIN, KGW, KOPB, and KRCW are upconverted to 1080p. KATU is embedding SL-HDR1 metadata. That is a bit disappointing. I guess 1080P is better than 1080i, but a far cry from true 4k. S...

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

I just got my 4K unit today here in the Portland area. Just to be clear, right now even with the very latest firmware, which I have loaded up, the 4K broadcast viewing is not working, correct? I do see the atsc 3 on 33 and 30. But can't seem to tune to them. And when I try going to channel 2-1 (whic...
