Re: ATSC 3.0: Hartford/New Haven, CT

If there's any testing, it won't happen until after they make their NextGen filing with the FCC and only in the middle of the night to avoid disruption to WCCT's OTA and satellite viewers as any testing would involve switching WCCT's RF 33 signal to ATSC 3.0.

Re: Unable to View Newly Encrypted Channels on Optimum

Switched video lets them reclaim the bandwidth so they can offer faster internet speeds. They started doing this in the mid-00s with the now defunct VOOM HD channels, and later expanded it to the multiplex premiums, sports packages, international packages and now most of the SD feeds and some lesser...

Re: Unable to View Newly Encrypted Channels on Optimum

My brother is on the Hauppauge system too. If you have a cable card you should still be able to access their HD feeds in the 600s and 700s instead of their traditional numbers (5, 4, 7, 12, 61, etc), but many of the SD feeds and lesser watched HD channels now require a tuning adapter.

Re: Unable to View Newly Encrypted Channels on Optimum

Do you have a tuning adapter? In addition to encrypting channels they also moved some channels to switched video. Optimum also had a history of including additional stations in Clear QAM like the government access channels from neighboring towns and some additional locals that aren't available in al...

Re: Phoenix, a couple of channels missing data

You're probably going to have to make another change in about 2 weeks. One of those duplicate Grits will likely be replaced by Newsy when Scripps relaunches it as a diginet on October 1st.

Re: Odd channel reception in my house

It's because most Roku devices have a crappy MPEG-2 decoder that crashes anytime it encounters an imperfect video stream and error correction would normally kick in. For online video that isn't an issue, but with OTA weaker signals or a momentary change in reception conditions from things like a gus...

Re: HD HomeRun freezes when another program opened

Photoshop is a massive CPU and memory resource hog, especially at launch when it runs all the checks to make sure you have a valid license. It also uses GPU acceleration which can affect video decoding.

Re: Relax the requirements for a channel

If you were able to get the Seattle stations with the mudflap style antenna in a window, the Antennas Direct Bowtie with the preamp might be giving you too strong of a signal. Try removing the preamp and the power inserter and connect the antenna directly to the HDHomeRun and see if the Seattle stat...

Re: Same number, different channels

LPTV signals are considered secondary to full power stations, so if there's a conflict the LPTV signal is the one that has to change. If the LPTV signal doesn't respond to a viewer complaint, which isn't surprising considering it's a HC2 owned signal, the only way get this resolved is to get the ful...

Re: Same number, different channels

I've even gone as far as trying to contact the station owner to try and get them to change channel numbers, not sure if that's even a possibility. But it seems like such a simple bug to fix in the software, as most standard tv tuners have a way to just show both. Try contacting WHRO's engineers and...

For North American OTA, a unique TSID is assigned to each station in USA, Mexico and Canada. Unless the station is transmitting an invalid or wrong one, under normal circumstances it shouldn't change.

No, KPLR's ATSC 1.0 stations will be carried by other St. Louis stations like KMOV and KTVI

Re: ATSC 3.0 WTTK (RF15) Indianapolis, IN

It's in the TVStudy they submitted with their application to increase the power back in 2018. You can't cause more than 0.5% interference to full power stations or more than 2% interference to low power or Class A stations. It also takes into account the affected population of those areas receiving ...
