Re: Channels displayed only in HDHomeRun Setup App

Newer versions that have the channel scan function built in (EXPAND/CONNECT models) will generate fake channel numbers if the provider is not sending any, so they will work in the app. You won't have guide data for most channels since SD doesn't have guide data for whichever country you're in (looks...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Nashville TN OTA

I'm curious how involved Meredith even was in Portland. Their master control for the entire west coast, including Portland, was run out of KPHO (Phoenix) until earlier this year when they shut it down and consolidated the entire country into WGCL's facility in Atlanta. If they had just decided to ma...

Re: Channels displayed only in HDHomeRun Setup App

Legacy devices will only work in the HDHomeRun app when used with a service (either antenna or cable) that sends both channel numbers and channel names. Your cable provider apparently does not send channel numbers, so it won't work.

Re: HDHomeRun Prime 3 Not Detecting all Channels

The first card wouldn't work because it needs a firmware update. The 0201 version is like 14 years old and doesn't support current (by which I mean, published in like 2008) security standards. It has to be updated to any version after that. 0625 is the most common, and that's what your other card ha...

Re: RF Channel has Signal and 100% Signal Quality, but no Virtual Channels channels

You'd usually see the symbol quality getting hammered if it was an interference issue. They may not have a choice. If you're in a mountainous part of the country and that's a translator, most of those are installed on top of mountains at the end of a lot of roads that don't get plowed, so if somethi...

Re: Recording DRM

You know what, my sentiments exactly. Like a sucker, I had recently paid $35 for the DVR service and found out it does not allow recording of the DRM protected channels. What a disappointment. It does no better than my Plex Media Server DVR which does all the same things basically as this useless $...

Re: CONNECT 4K HD issue

Have you tried watching using the HDHomeRun app on something other than the Mac? If the SD channels work then it's probably not a device issue, but rather something somewhere on the network connection (run a packet loss test and see if you get dots or n's) or the decoding on the Mac. Hardwiring is i...

Re: RF Channel has Signal and 100% Signal Quality, but no Virtual Channels channels

Does that channel work on anything else? What you describe suggests there's no data feeding the station's transmitter so it's just broadcasting null packets (the broadcast equivalent of packing peanuts).

Re: Signal and Symbol Quality bouncing between none and 100%

You probably need a high pass filter. Do a search for "tvi high pass filter" and see if you can find one somewhere that isn't a pain to ship to Ireland. They used to be readily available in the UK for about £10 and no problem shipping to Ireland, but I don't know what it's like post-Brexit.

Re: Cable Card HDhomerun prime TDS TV+

Cable providers have zero interest in letting you receive their programming without renting hardware from them since the vast majority of their profits come from hardware rental. The only way it ever opens up is governmental regulation, and they have bribed way too many people in government for that...

Re: New orders

Multiple DVRs are pretty seamless. They will talk to each other and whichever has more free space at a time will make the recording. The HDHomeRun app will show all recordings from all DVRs together. If you don't have guide listings for your channels you should post in the Guide Issues subforum of t...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Nashville TN OTA

I thought the plan was to use the more robust signal for their main feed at lower quality, then use the less robust PLP1 for a high quality one. Like streaming is today. I guess with it not even being a year since launch they’re testing the waters. I get that. I’m just surprised, seeing they are br...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Phoenix - Jan 2021

I wish we had someone in Dallas who would actually work with people to identify issues. The only contact I have here won't even acknowledge that the video they're broadcasting is only at ~30fps even though it's exceedingly obvious that it's not running full rate when you put the ATSC 3 and ATSC 1 br...

Re: Continuing ATSC 3.0 problems in Pittsburgh market after 20200210 firmware release - rcoups

It's not recommended to combine 2 antennas to feed into the same device except in extremely specific cases (multi-antenna array properly phased and pointed in the same direction to increase gain/directionality to receive a distant broadcast, or separate UHF and VHF antennas with a proper combiner), ...

Re: The Daily Show record problems Xfinity Win10 DVR

Upload an affected recording somewhere (Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, OneDrive, etc.) and email a link to it to support along with a link to this thread so they know what it is.
