Re: Dallas ATSC 3.0?

It looks like the station isn't broadcasting LLS data, which is the ATSC 3 equivalent of PSIP data in ATSC 1. I sent an email to my contact at the station.

Re: Dallas ATSC 3.0?

The station is on-air and broadcasting *something*, but the HDHomeRun isn't seeing any channel data. I sent some captures to Nick to take a look at.

Plex cannot use any kind of storage that is connected to an HDHomeRun. You need something that can run the Plex server, whether that is a computer, NVIDIA Shield TV, or NAS. Plex can use a USB hard drive connected to that device.

Re: Dag-nabit! 5G Interference

The right amount of gain is the amount required by your setup. Some people need a blowtorch like the ChannelMaster CM-7777 with 26dB of amplification. Most don't, and something with less gain like the 16dB of the CM-7778 or the 18dB of the Winegard Boost XT is probably a better option. Some people l...

15.1 is now carried in ATSC 1 on WOOD's broadcast. 15.2 is on WXMI and 15.3 on WWMT.

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

Does it have guide listings? The record button won't be there if there are no guide listings for the channel. You'll need to post in the guide issues forum to have them add listings for that channel.

I can imagine all the complaints about it only doing TV and not running any other apps.

Re: Tivimate Error

404 is "not found". That means the channel you're trying to access isn't in the HDHomeRun's channel lineup

Re: ATSC 3.0: Phoenix - Jan 2021

The signal margin is ~24dB below the worst full-power UHF channel, which is a ton. You're close enough to the towers that you could hike up there in an hour or two, so there's still a lot of signal. You live in Ahwatukee which means there's about a 99% chance your house has stucco siding, and the ch...

Re: Audio echo

The best way to do it would probably just be to use an audio editor like Audacity that supports multiple channels. You can see the volume levels on each track, and selectively mute individual tracks and play it back to see what you get. If you mute C, you can still hear the people talking but the ro...

Re: Signal cuts out when turn on things. Interference Firmware?

It's called impulse noise, and it can come from a variety of sources. The biggest culprits are fluorescent lights (especially cheap CFLs), dimmer switches, some LED light bulbs (mostly cheap Chinese shit), and anything that converts electricity into motion, including fans, motors, pumps, and compres...

Re: HELP - WMC Sees Only 2 of 3 tuners in HDHomerun Prime

Microsoft killing WMC was one of the worst decisions they ever made. They stopped development just when it was needed most as multi-tuner CableCARD devices became available and cord cutting became a thing.

Re: Audio echo

Something is upmixing the stereo audio into 5.1 and doing a lousy job of it. The audio is in C, L, R, and SR (but not SL for some reason). Anything that is the same between the channels (e.g. anything that is spoken) is duplicated between C and L/R and slightly out of sync between them, resulting in...

Re: Audio / Video keeps losing synch

Go into the settings menu in the HDHomeRun app and turn off the Use AC3 passthrough option, if available. That can be an issue on some FireTV devices.

Re: faulty power cord

Sounds like you just got a bad power supply. Rare, but it happens. You can open a support ticket with SD with that info and they'll send you a replacement power supply under warranty at no charge.
