Re: HDHomerun Config crashes

I ran a test by downloading and compiling libhdhomerun and hdhomerun_config_gui on a Xbuntu 20.04 system. Two HDHomeRun units - a PRIME and a CONNECT. I have not been able to make it crash.

Fox channels not working

We don't mess with channel availability. On some cable systems Fox channels can be special in requiring content protection when other channels don't. The first thing to check is the CableCARD Menu webpage on the device. If it says Validation "none" then you need to call your cable company. When the ...

Re: Is now a good time to pick up the HDHR5-4K?

Thanks signcarver, most helpful although my indeciveness is now worse than it was before. Nick, does the HDHomeRun SCRIBE 4K have newer components than the HDHR5-4K, or does it just add the ability to record? If it's new components, I'll just wait till March. Otherwise, I'm leaning towards grabbing...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

5000+ channel numbers are auto-generated when a channel doesn't have a channel number. In USA/Canada these will almost always be ATSC 1.0 channels that are too weak to receive.

Thumbs up!

HDHomeRun SCRIBE 4K (HDVR-4K-1TB) is in the works - will be available in March for $279 vs the HDHomeRun CONNECT 4K at $199.

That suggests you are running an older version of the app - be sure to upgrade to the 20210104 release.

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham

Appears to be slightly better, but far from perfect. These new fw versions can lock to a multi-PLP signal much better, but there is still a consistent issue with 105.11. For instance, I can tune to 150.11 and 134.11, but I can't tune to 105.11 with the Android TV or Windows apps at all (also can't ...

I think the problem that was the subject of this thread has been solved. Locking this thread to avoid confusion.

Ok to start a new thread for any other issues or if I missed something in this thread.

Re: ATSC 3.0 Channels moved to 100s in lineup no longer have HD tags in addition to HEVC tags

This is expected. HD tags will be back in the near future.

Open question is how to handle OTT delivered content - ie do we download a video segment from each OTT channel to check the resolution.
