Re: HDhomerun that transcode output

The extend makes recording file size much much smaller. MPEG 2 made huge files for tv shows, I had to transcode them down later to save space. Using the extend reduced file sizes alot. Also, if trying to watch over wifi, for tv's that are too far away in your house and you only have wireless N 2.4gh...

Re: Lets Talk LTE Interference

The exception would be perhaps a TV receiver that doesn't pass RF higher than channel 36. Built-in LTE filter. Perhaps this will be the case for new TV receivers and signal amplifiers at some point in the future. I think a built in LTE filter in Tv's would be a bad idea. The FCC could re-auction fr...

Re: New Silicondust LTE Filter

We've seen spec sheet of the Channel Master LTE filter and 3rd parting test results. Where is the SD LTE filter spec sheet and test results? An extra 99 cents for the SD logo. Oh and it looks like plus shipping too. Looking at both on Amazon, it's $19.00 for the Channel Master and $19.99 for the Si...

Re: How to explain that symbol error quality has started to fluctuate a lot after several years?

I tried installing a 608mhz filter right on my box, but that didn't work for me. I had to install it closer to the antenna, but mine's in the attic so it wasn't hard. However, my issues were on channel 36 which is at 602mhz. So it made sense that it would be LTE interference after the summer 2020 fr...

Re: Signal in Bangkok Question

According to WIKI, your country uses DVB-T in UHF band 678mhz and 674mhz on channels 44 and 46. Does sound about right? Do you have other channels now? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_digital_television_deployments_by_country#Thailand If your country uses DVB-T or DVB-T2 for broadcasting, then...

Re: New Silicondust LTE Filter

I didn't order the Silicon Dust filter, I ordered a different one last fall when football season started back up(the only thing I actually watch on antenna). Last fall I noticed many of my channels were not working and my local station on DTV channel 36 (602-608mhz) was still strong but would stutte...

Re: pixel dropout issue

That's similar to what I was getting after the Summer 2020 frequency repack where cellular took over 600-700mhz. The problems were mostly with physical channels 35 and 36 which are right at about 600mhz, so I was able to solve the issue by buying a newer updated 4G LTE filter, remade for 600mhz. You...

Re: Cox sucks-my story

You can port your phone line over to a cellular sim(buy a cheap $20 sim card to last a month or 2), then port it again to google voice ($20 charge one time, google voice won't allow porting directly from a landline). That way you can retain your phone number forever, then use the google voice app on...
