Re: HDHR5-2US vs HDHR5-4K on ATSC 1.0?

I have a lot of multipath issues to deal with and the Sony chips in the 4K work better for me than the MxL in older gen 5, which are better than the Panasonics in gen 4, which are in turn light years better than anything that came before. Caveat here is that I am fairly close to the towers and don't...

Re: One channel pixelated/ ticket 146964

I hadn't heard of KPNX being an issue with NVIDIA, but it's possible. Other stations owned by the same company have had the issue. Curious if you talked to them and got a date from them about moving from 12 to 18. I couldn't find anything with a quick search, but that kind of thing doesn't usually s...

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

Have you rebooted and gone through the TV Signal setup wizard? WMC usually gets cranky like that if it tries to access a tuner and encounters an error, usually due to the tuner being in use by something else. One or the other of a reboot or going through setup again will usually knock some sense bac...

Re: Audio on ATSC 3.0 (I did read other threads)

The dev version gives more technical signal measurements (dB and dBm instead of %) and opens up more streaming options (like pcap and dash-tar) that are useful for things beyond just watching and recording TV. There's an upgrade option available for purchase in the SD shop that will unlock those fea...

Re: One channel pixelated/ ticket 146964

For what it's worth, KPNX received a construction permit from the FCC on 2/26 to move from channel 12 to channel 18, which they requested due to the large number of people having trouble receiving their channel 12 broadcast. I don't know when they plan to actually make the move, but that will almost...

Re: Guide errors

You need to provide the device ID for your HDHomeRun so they can fix the listing for the HGTV HD channel.

Re: Unable To Play Back Recorded Content

My guess is that Silicondust has the guide listings for 25 set to ABC Television Melbourne instead of no listings like it should be for a radio station. SD's guide listings in Australia are all set by hand, so if there is a channel that has an ambiguous name like that, it could get set wrong. When N...

Re: MythTV HDHR5-4K integration

You sure about that, Nick? I thought quick tune used RF channel and program number instead of RF channel and PID filter.

Re: Semi-Clueless OLD Newbie

FWIW, the HD7000R and YA7000C are basically the same antenna, except the HD version has the mounting clamp in the middle vs. the YA having it at the end, and the YA includes a J pole and mounting bracket while the HD requires a separate mast. I believe the HD model is discontinued, so it's not a bad...

Re: Updated hdhomerun_config software for linux?

The GTK app for Linux/Mac is a completely separate codebase from the Windows version, and it hasn't seen a significant change since like 2011. You could modify the existing GTK source to match the Windows functionality. It's not like most of the important stuff that is missing (e.g. PLP checkboxes f...

Re: MythTV HDHR5-4K integration

libhdhomerun is a waste of your time for this since the way MythTV uses it is designed around broadcasts being transport streams. ATSC 3 doesn't use transport streams, so there's really no point in trying to cram that square peg into the round hole. You're better off using ExternalRecorder and mythh...

Re: Buffering making watching impossible.

Don't trust the Roku at all. Try the HDHomeRun app on a platform that is known to work well - Windows 10, Mac, Android, iOS, Apple TV.

Re: Pixelatiop and Audio issues after Feb 2020 firmware

AFAIK, Comcast still has a mix of markets that have transcoded locals and markets that don't. Check a recording in MediaInfo or a live stream in VLC to see if it's MPEG2 or MPEG4/H.264/AVC. The former is likely the original stream that might have NVIDIA issues; the latter is transcoded and should not.

Re: Can't unhide

Seems like SD broke this in a UI update since I'm not seeing the Unhide button either. It's something they'll have to fix on their side.

Re: Unable To Play Back Recorded Content

Do you have a channel 25? Are the guide listings correct for both it and 20?
