Re: List of Hardware and Software that Supports Dolby AC-4

Here's another data point... I picked up a LG OLED CX TV this weekend. The WebOS sees the HDHR on my network as a multimedia device. I can stream TV from it and it happily plays the PDX ATSC 3.0 streams with audio and video. Pretty stable as well... Are you using the HDHomerun app, or just as a UPn...

Re: Interoperability issue with HDHomerun4K and Ubiquiti switches

Second, there are no topology considerations due to the HDHomeRun being 100baseTX as they don't receive data at any meaningful rate. The HDHomeRun won't slow down anything on the network being 100baseTX. We recommend using GigE switches to avoid bottlenecks to the recording server or between switch...

Re: Interoperability issue with HDHomerun4K and Ubiquiti switches

Even if some market did that (which will never happen, because ATSC 3 stations will end up basically upgrading their legacy ATSC broadcasts to a single 1080p of the main network and 4-5 720p subchannels), the 4K device is 2+2 tuners so you'd still top out at 25+25+15+15 = 80Mb/s or whatever, which ...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham - Jan 2021

For all the others crammed on RF 14, it really doesn't look any better quality to me. CBS 17 bounces if look closely. Honest feedback. That has to do with the conversion from a true 1080i source to HEVC's 'fake' 1080i mode. The bouncing is an artifact in how the decoder is forced to interleave the ...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham - Jan 2021

Slow tuning is already enough to cause me to stick with SD DVR software instead of the painfully slow Plex tuning. Plex also transcodes the video, so SD looks better. The tuning time in Plex is very much device-dependent in my experience. Some devices, like certain models of the Fire TV series, can...

Re: Interoperability issue with HDHomerun4K and Ubiquiti switches

By the time you get to final retail price of a device, it's a difference of several dollars, not 6 cents. Fair enough, but admittedly, I was being a bit tongue-in-check there. :D As I stated, I 'get' why there is only a FE NIC on these devices. While there hypothetically is a chance that at some po...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham - Jan 2021

I'm in the Raleigh/Durham market and I've been hovering over the buy button for a couple of months. I'm finding it hard to spend 200.00 for 3.0 if I'm not getting much for my money at this point. I would like to upgrade from two to four tuners. I know we now have a number of stations onboard, thoug...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham - Jan 2021

I use Channels DVR / Apple TV 4K and FireTV Stick 4K and love it. I would wait until the March 16 (?) Apple event to see if they release a new AppleTV and get the newest model. I set up Channels DVR on a WD NAS PR2100 and it is a wonderful setup. They are quick to innovate and it works well on mobi...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham - Jan 2021

When CBS switched to channel 17.1, we also saw choppier reception at certain times seasonally. I'm guessing you mean that CBS coming through on 17.1 was less reliable than it used to be on 5.1? 17.1, which previously was the NBC affiliate, should not have had a change in signal due to this switch (...

Re: Only 1 channel of audio on ATSC 3 AND 1 channels - Windows client

Do you mean 1 audio channel, or 1 audio track? If you’re only hearing a mono channel, and watching content that should be providing 5.1 or at least 2.0, then yeah, that is extremely odd. If you’re routing audio from your Shield to a receiver, maybe check you didn’t accidentally enable mono mode or s...

Re: Interoperability issue with HDHomerun4K and Ubiquiti switches

Be thankful the solution was something that could be addressed at all. My 10G Ubiquiti switch won’t allow HDHomeRun devices to directly connect at all, since they have no support for Fast Ethernet devices. I have to connect an interim 1G switch to the 10G switch, and then my HDHomeRuns to the 1G swi...

Re: Detroit ATSC 3.0 - Jan 2021

In my experience, the video on ATSC 3.0 seems a tad inferior to ATSC 1.0. In particular, one thing I’m noticing is that white text (such as the ticker on sports) tends to have a rainbow tinge. I’ve seen this on multiple channels (7/62 for sure, and I think I’ve seen it on 2/4). This can be resolved...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham - Jan 2021

As of February 2021, I am now able to get audio from the HEVC 1xx channels on my shield 2015. I uninstalled the version I had loaded and reinstalled the application and now able to get audio. I have three 2015 Shields. On one of them, I have been able to decode AC-4 audio since Dec. But on the othe...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham - Jan 2021

RabbitEars is only as updated as local sources allow. To the extent I can't find a local source, it's not updated. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not omniscient, but in places where I have regular contacts, I do think I'm pretty on top of things as a general matter. With ATSC 3.0, the big problem ...
