Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

The answer that should satisfy everyone is to make the scanning range a user option. 2-51 or even 2-69 could be the default but let the users who are annoyed by the time it takes change the range to 2-36 or 8-23 or whatever is best for them. Yup. It is extremely unlikely that my device will ever ne...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

In the last 30 days CONNECT model ATSC HDHomeRun units have accumulatively seen 183,574 sub-channels in the 38-51 channel range from units located in the USA. What do you suppose those 183,574 sub-channels in the 38-51 channel range are? They certainly better not be broadcast TV. Just because they ...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

No I can't list one but they always say that when dealing with existing low powered stations... typically the issue doesn't come up until verizon (for the most part) tries to do something new in the remote area which then the fcc sides with the cellphone company forcing the change. That's what I th...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

ATSC model HDHomeRun units are not location/country aware. ATSC model HDHomeRun units scan for ATSC signals on frequencies used with ATSC anywhere in the world. What then is the point of having a country location configuration selector? My device was marketed and sold as a U.S. broadcast TV tuner a...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

But those people who need the other channels still exist in the US and (I have had 1000+ such clients). What you are asking serves no purpose other than to cripple the device. The only thing limited to those channels are actual OTA broadcast and even then there may be some remote low power stations...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

When used in the US it still makes sense to at least scan 2-51 as the customer may be near the CA or MX boarder and get CA or MX channels. Canada coordinated repack of stations near the boarder (within 130km if I recall) with the U.S. I don't see any that qualify for this assertion. Do you know of ...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

But that is the case as it isn't important to ANYONE but you... why CRIPPLE a device. The scan on the device itself should not change as it is pretty much auto, no country (this might change a little as they look into certain regional settings when countries use the same virtual channel number in m...

"No offense" then make an insult to what is important to someone. Offense taken.

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

Wondering how much improvement and savings could be made to receivers having to cover less than half the RF spectrum. There is no reason to build UHF Ch. 37 to 69 receivers for U.S. consumer TV equipment. If you think there is why not go all the way and include 70 to 83 too. Oh that's right those ha...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

Sounds like there should be a legacy channel map for them to use. Let the rest of us progress.
How many broadcast channels does an apartment building need? They could probably fit at least 10 on a single broadcast channel.

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

No reason to scan a bunch of channels if they are not going to exist [don't exist]. Perhaps that day ain't yet. But it's on the horizon. The repack to move broadcasters from channels 38-51 completion was July 3rd, 2020. So that day on the horizon I mentioned appears to have already come and gone. T...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

On a related note, why does the HDHR scan down from channel 69? Were there ever any digital broadcasts in the US above 51? Soon the upper limit will be 36. HDHomeRun CONNECT, Model: HDHR4-2US, Firmware: 20200907 Using the web interface (or /lineup.json?scan=start) the scan progresses from channel 1...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

So that's what the reality is. What was reality supposed to be? It's been a long time since the conversions but I was under the impression, perhaps mistakenly so, that the low band VHF was to be obsoleted. Glad there are no low band VHF stations here. And only two that are exclusively high band VHF ...

Re: Channel Detect Scan Disrupts Signal of in Process Viewing

Maybe there could be an optional option to lineup.json to only use available tuners and report "ScanPosible":0 in lineup_status.json if no tuner is available.

Channel Detect Scan Disrupts Signal of in Process Viewing

Working on some scripting and observing that scanning with lineup.json or the device web page kills the signal of in progress viewing. 1) Start watching a channel in HDHomerun Viewer. 2) Device web page reports Tuner 0 Channel 2.3 Comet, and Tuner 1 Channel not in use. Which is correct. 3) Start a s...
