Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

What do you see wrong so he can correct it? He's a regular poster here and might see this thread, or you can submit the updates directly to him to help keep the resource up to date for other local viewers like many of us do. It would also help other Windows Media Center users since the next version ...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

Trip who runs the site works for the FCC and is heavily involved with the repack as part of his day job. The technical data is pulled directly from the FCC's database daily. He's also a regular poster here and has people use their HDHomeRuns to submit data for the live bandscans on the site. Of cour...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

The 84 MHz is the bandwidth they reclaimed from RFs 38-51, while the post-repack TV band is RF 2-36. RF 37 is the buffer, it's not allocated for any TV use since it's reserved for radio astronomy. The 5G frequencies start at 617 MHz so there's also a 3 MHz guard at the start of RF 38. 617-652 (RF 38...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

The Tech Specs on the Channel Master page you linked to now say it starts at 610 MHz, but the pictures still show the 600 MHz model.
"Electrical Specifications
Frequencies Pass 5 - 609 MHz
Frequencies Block 610 - 2000 MHz"

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

2) Changing the "Min Physical Channel" to something other than the default of 2 breaks the channel scan. It scans for channel 2 and then stops. Which is really strange because Windows Media Center's developers coded the scan function to only scan UHF, even though by the time Vista TV pack...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

Just a warning before anyone blindly buys that. They now have a newer model that starts at 610 MHz (RF 37) since their original 600 MHz model cuts out RF 36 and the top 2 MHz of RF 35, which causes problems for about 80% of the country. (i.e. in NYC WNBC is on RF 35 and WCBS is on RF 36, while porti...

Re: Looking for the official HDHomeRun add-on for Kodi?

If you are using Windows, Mac or Android/FireTV, look under Addons -> Install from Repository -> PVR Clients -> PVR HDHomeRun Client If you're using a Linux distribution for Kodi you have to install kodi-pvr-hdhomerun. (i.e. on Debian/Ubuntu based distributions run "sudo apt-get install kodi-pv...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Should we start a gofundme to get someone to write it for FFMPEG? There is a site Bountysource where you can contribute to a "bounty" towards resolving a bug/feature request. It's supported by the FFmpeg team and integrated with their issue tracker, so pages on Bountysource are already av...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Plex uses FFmpeg for their transcode function, until FFmpeg gets AC-4 support, it wouldn't know what to do with the audio format.

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Yeah, until an open source ac3 codec came along you needed to purchase a DVD codec for Windows like WinDVD or NVidia's PureVideo codec. PCI ATSC tuner cards like ATI's HDTV Wonder and Hauppauge's WinTV-HD came with software for MPEG2 Video/AC3 audio decoding, but it was hardcoded so the codecs would...

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

The repack phases only applied to Full Power and Class A stations. There are still numerous licensed LPTV stations and translators in the 38-51 range in the USA, these can be anything from so-called "useless" channels like shopping/religious, to very popular diginets like Cozi that for var...
