Re: 24 Dec 2020

As a general guideline, if a playback device doesn't claim 4K support, it doesn't have an HEVC decoder, and therefore won't play ATSC 3 channels. I used an app called "Informer" to read out the capabilities of the Firestick and it lists... Video Support: H.265(HEVC), H.264, H.263, MPEG-4, MPEG-2 Au...

ATSC 1.0 vs 3.0 reception in Portland

Ok, I admit I may be a bit of a Unicorn, but I didn't buy this tuner for the 4K HDR or enhanced audio. My motivation was for improved reception. ATSC 3.0 uses an entirely different modulation technique that is supposed to be more immune to multipath and weak reception. I live about 25 miles from the...

Re: 24 Dec 2020

Is anyone else having issues with scanning for channels? I get wildly inconsistent results with anywhere from 3 to 30 channels picked up when I scan with the latest 20210104 firmware in the Portland area. I am in the Portland market and live about 25 miles west of the antenna farm. No line of sight...

Re: 24 Dec 2020

Thanks for the hint, but when I try to compose a PM I get a message that says I am not authorized to use this feature. I guess I'm too much of a noob to be trusted with this much responsibility :-).

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

Just ran hdhomerun_config_gui and manually tuned tuner 0 to rf ch33 and there is nothing there. They must be off the air.
