Re: ATSC 3.0 in Norfolk

WNLO-CD's filing with the FCC indicates they will be carrying WVBT, WAVY, and WTVZ on their ATSC 3 broadcast, so if you're seeing HEVC for WTVZ then you were getting at least some portion of WNLO-CD at the time you ran the channel scan. Most current ATSC 3 broadcasts divide up their bandwidth to bas...

Re: HDHomeRun Prime compatible with new Cox upgrades?

Are you trying to watch the DRM channels in the HDHomeRun app on a platform that supports DRM (Windows 10, Xbox One, iOS, Google-certified Android TV/phone/tablet) or something that doesn't support DRM (anything else)? If you're trying to watch DRM on an unsupported platform, of course it's not goin...

Re: Host ID Missing

Probably a bad card, try another one (or six).

Re: HDHomeRun Duo - Reception Issues

Only if you're splitting the signal from the aerial and have another device that is having the same reception issues. Otherwise, it's fine where it is.

Re: HDHomeRun Prime compatible with new Cox upgrades?

The device itself and the HDHomeRun app are compatible. YMMV on other software like WMC.

Re: HCDP Required

The obvious test is to go one by one through the displays and see if any of them don't work on their own. If they all work individually, try with 2 hooked up, then 3, and so on to see if there's a point where it breaks. There might be some limit on the card as to the number of displays that can supp...

Re: Nvidia Shield issues

13.1 looks OK for me on a 2017 Shield. 13.3 has the video randomly freezing though, even when the audio continues. I'm sending a sample to SD to look at.

The video glitches on 5.1 are due to a defect in NVIDIA's video decoder. Same thing happens on most of their PC video cards.

Re: HDHomeRun Duo - Reception Issues

Your problem isn't with 4G signals (which are higher frequencies than TV signals) but rather with something on lower frequencies. That particular filter blocks both low and high frequencies, so it still does the job.

Re: Stretch mode

You should ask the station to adjust their encoder so that the video is flagged properly as 16:9 instead of the current incorrect 4:3 setting, and that way it shows up correctly for everyone everywhere.

Re: LPF-608M LTE FILTER

If you're encountering issues with LTE interference it will help. This is most likely to happen if you're using an amplifier or amplified antenna, and/or if you're far away from the broadcast towers. If you actually live in NYC, you probably shouldn't be using an amplified antenna in the first place...

Re: FaveTV?

Once that happens, the listing should automatically appear like what happened with DABL when it launched on the DT3's of the CBS O&O's. Ha, you wish it was automatic. Dabl had listings because I started bitching at Gracenote a month before launch and then for weeks after to get individual listings ...

Re: HDHR Prime won't get an IP address from router

100Mbit only uses 4 wires/2 pairs in an Ethernet cable, while gigabit uses all 8 wires/4 pairs. If you have a PRIME that works at 100Mbit but not gigabit, then odds are you've got a cable with some sort of fault or you've somehow damaged one of the connectors on the switch or HDHomeRun.

Re: LPF-608M LTE FILTER

Broadcast TV channels in (most of) the US stop at channel 36, which occupies 602-608MHz. Channel 37 (608-614MHz) is reserved for radio astronomy use. Cell phone service starts just above that. There are a few low-power TV broadcasts in BFE that are still operating on channels 38-51. They're allowed ...
