Re: Tuner/Guide problem 49.3 WEDW-1

From what I can tell from other reports in the area, WEDW-3 might not exist anymore. WEDW is temporarily sharing their half of the RF 21 bandwidth with WTXX-LD (the 34-x channels), so they're now only broadcasting CPTV in SD on 49-1. Once WTXX-LD finishes building out their post-repack signal and le...

Re: 4K Content - Broadcasts Yet?

South Korea doesn't have nearly as many stations in a given city like we have here, so they don't have to worry about squeezing in dozens of full power, Class A and LPTV stations in major and larged sized markets. (i.e. Seoul only has 6 full power stations, while NYC has 15+ full power sginals) Sout...

The Roku Ultra 2020 has AC-4 support, but it only accepts it via a MP4 container, and not via a MPEG-TS container which is used for live broadcast streams.

Re: Roku app

Roku requires all 3rd party developers to use their built in player and codecs instead of bundling your own player and codecs like you can do with Apple, Android and Windows. Their built in codecs expect a "clean" stream delivered to them, while that might be okay for "stable" streaming sources like...

Re: 24 Dec 2020

The 2nd gen fire stick was released in 2016, hardware based HEVC decoding was still limited to higher end devices at the time. Software HEVC decoding was introduced with Lollipop, but the initial version was limited in what profiles and resolutions it could decode. The software HEVC decoder from tha...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Portland - Jan 2021

but expected improved audio in the short term because my assumption was better audio was already available from the networks but ATSC 1 could not deliver the fidelity. The network's feeds originate as AC-3 with 384 kbps for 5.1 or 192 kbps for stereo, which is the same codec and bitrate that most A...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Portland - Jan 2021

Once the simulcast period is done (3 to 5 years depending on market), broadcasters will convert their existing ATSC 1.0 transmitters to ATSC 3.0 transmitters and KRCW and KPDX will have the full bandwidth available and can reallocate it as they would like. There's a caveat to that, it is not mandat...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Denver - Jan 2021

Yeah, SAP isn't always Spanish, many times it's used during primetime to have descriptive audio for the blind where a narrator describes the on screen action, the rest of the time it's just a stereo or mono version of the main audio track.

Re: Cox and DRM

Kodi is open source software, so it will never pass CableLabs certification to get access to the required code to view DRM protected channels.

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham

Even after the 20210104 update I still do not have audio on my 2015 model shield. I do have audio on my 2019 shield. Nvidia only paid for a Dolby license for their 2019 models, so you're not going to get audio on the 2015 or 2017 models without it being connected to a soundbar or AV Receiver that s...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Denver

Yeah, mudflap antennas like that are crap for reliable VHF reception. Antennas designed like that pick up what little VHF reception they get from the positioning of the unshielded cord and not the antenna itself, which makes it extra sensitive to any interfering noise, and performance is worse once ...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Denver

Having 100% strength but nothing for quality usually means it's being fed too strong of a signal, or you have massive RF interference issues in your area.

If you're using an amplifier, try removing it.

Re: ATSC 3.0 in Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Minnesota

That's because there are no ATSC 3.0 stations in the Minneapolis DMA, so no firmware update is going to give you something that doesn't exist in your area. Don't waste your time scanning daily expecting something to show up. Whenever ATSC 3.0 launches in Minneapolis, you'll know about it in advanced...
