Re: ATSC 3.0: Washington, DC / Baltimore, MD

WDCN-LD is up and running with 3.0. Looks like a dead carrier though; I've produced a debug capture of it (427MB) and also sent a note to the station to advise them that I can't see their programming. Are there multiple PLPs? No. https://www.avsforum.com/threads/washington-dc-baltimore-md-hdtv.7931...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Washington, DC / Baltimore, MD

On a side note, they really should prevent autoscans from taking place overnight and mornings Autoscans?!? What autoscans? I don't think my 4K has ever changed the channel list without my explicitly requesting a rescan. Is that an HDHR thing or an app thing? And why can't you just disable it, and i...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

I should had said "free". Windows 10 indeed supports ATMOS, with the Dolby Access app in MS store. That's a 30 day free trial, but after that is $14.99. Oh wait... so they have a $.99 extension for HEVC for WMC, which I have NOT yet bought, because at this point I really only care about t...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Phoenix - Jan 2021

Oh, you really don't want that - not enough bandwidth available. No, I really do want that, for the reasons I gave in the previously referenced AVS post. Note that I'm not saying there should only be a single PLP or that all the streams should be in it, just the "Big-4", as the FCC refers...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Washington, DC / Baltimore, MD

And nickk, how about making access to the manifest.xml file a part of the standard firmware somehow? Assuming the parameters are pretty straight-forward, that would be a good way to get data onto RabbitEars about what the stations are up to on 3.0. How do you get it with the dev firmware? And what'...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Phoenix - Jan 2021

Excellent move! Especially if they go in the same PLP with ABC and FOX. Oh, you really don't want that - not enough bandwidth available.

Re: ATSC 3.0: Phoenix - Jan 2021

Both KPHO and KPNX have filed to change their ATSC 3.0 hosts from KFPH-CD's RF 35 signal to KASW's RF 27 signal starting on July 8th. Excellent move! Especially if they go in the same PLP with ABC and FOX. More discussion on this point in AVS 3.0 thread . Yes, and both KTVK and KTAZ (Telmondo) will...

Hey Sinclair, leave a config change like that up for at least 24 friggin' hours, could ya please, so those of interested could have a chance to notice and play with it a bit, y'know?

Thanks so much...

And is that the "256 QAM with 9/15 FEC" that you cited in the AVS 3.0 thread?

And what is the "stock" GI, 1024?
