Re: 5.1 Dolby Digital what device?

I just ordered a Cube so we will see. I’m hoping it does DD. Thanks for the help.

Re: 5.1 Dolby Digital what device?

First, make sure you actually need DD passthrough. When connected directly to a receiver via HDMI, most devices can pass 6 channel PCM, which will give you equal sound quality to what you would get by passing through the DD without the hassles of actually making passthrough work. Passthrough is onl...

Re: 5.1 Dolby Digital what device?

Thanks for the replys. So Roku and Firetv doesn’t pass 5.1? The problem with the Xbox is if you use atmos on it everything decodes as atmos. You would have to go into the menu and switch back and forth.

5.1 Dolby Digital what device?

Hello, what device will give you 5.1 DD not PCM? Xbox and Appletv seem to do PCM.

Re: What happened? WJZ 13 Suddenly Working!

Because of Covid, WJZ and WBAL filed to postpone their work scheduled to begin May 1. I believe they asked for a date of July 31. WJZ antenna will be 10 meters higher and change from a directional pattern to a non directional pattern. So signals in most location should be stronger after the work is ...

Re: Can I improve Signal Quality?

If you wanted to get serious you could go separate vhf/uhf antennas. Since you mention the trouble station is a vhf station look up Stellar Labs vhf antennas. I believe they make a 12 element vhf and smaller one also.

Re: What happened? WJZ 13 Suddenly Working!

Interesting thoughts. The repack came to mind to me as well but it seems not to have been executed yet. WJZ and WBAL are still on physical channels 13 and 11, respectively. So there seems to be no change yet, but the questions is already whether it will get worse again. The reduced traffic is somet...

Re: What happened? WJZ 13 Suddenly Working!

Hi, A while ago I had trouble with WJZ 13 and WBAL 11 in Baltimore. The problem was that the symbol quality went in regular intervals from ~100% to 0% for just a second or so and the picture would become pixelated. This was so untolerable that I ditched my HDHomerun Quatro for a while. It was recom...

Can you use multiple DUOs in same house?

At my location I have two cities in opposite directions. Combining antennas doesn’t work well. Separate antennas work no problem but most tuners only have one input. Is it possible to use two DUOs in my house and how does that work in using the HdHomerun App? I’m hoping that the app will list all ch...
