Re: Flex 4K

I guess I have been remiss in watching for new products.
What is the market niche for the Flex?
How does this fit in the family product line?
Will this be replacing the Connect line? Or is the Flex going to supplant both Connect and Scribe product lines, transitioning to external Hard Drives?

Re: VHF-Hi Channel @ 201MHz is completely trashed at exactly 8:14pm EST till approx 9am

I just got off the phone with customer support from Sylvania. She confirmed that all of their LED bulbs are fully compliant with the FCC regulations regarding spurious RF generation.

In fact a 24pk of 14.5watt (60W equivalent) are less than $21 on Amazon.

So ... Consider this one closed!

Re: VHF-Hi Channel @ 201MHz is completely trashed at exactly 8:14pm EST till approx 9am

I will search the Internet to see if I can find bulbs which have passed the FCC Certification, hopefully that is listed. As for the wiring, I used RG6 Quad and the cable run is not within 10 feet of the lights. In fact the bulbs that appear to cause a large part of the interference are at least 20' ...

Re: Windows 10 Live Playback Issue

I was experiencing similar issues. I have Dell workstations and AlienWare workstations. Both are running "Win 10 20H2". I remember reading a post about Intel and NVidia Drivers affecting the playback. I reviewed "Tinkerguy" comments dated Feb 11, 2021 and decided to go down the driver road. My syste...

Re: VHF-Hi Channel @ 201MHz is completely trashed at exactly 8:14pm EST till approx 9am

I stood outside watching channel 11.1 in an HD viewer Window with the HD Config open monitoring the Signal. 8:14pm passed with no problem. But ... six minutes later the recessed exterior soffit lights and garage la...

Re: VHF-Hi Channel @ 201MHz is completely trashed at exactly 8:14pm EST till approx 9am

The homes are separated by by about 100' or so. That is a good suggestion though. There is a relatively new World Headquarters that was built within 1/8 Mile, over the past few years. I just installed the antenna and HD four weeks ago. I may need to drive out there tonight and sit in the driveway an...

Just use the HDHomerun app on the Firestick. The Live Channels App is not certified for use on the FireSitck. It won't even load on my LG Android Phone "not certified for use on this device".

Re: Semi-Clueless OLD Newbie

I just haven't settled on the antenna yet. The one I have is from Walmart. I get a few stations (ABC happily) mostly Spanish-speaking channels. To be expected in southern Arizona. I may have to invest more than $30 in an antenna. We shall see! IMHO the antennas from Antennas Direct are absolutely t...

Re: Quatro ATSC1 Product availability

Nick,

Will the Family Product line brochure be updated to reflect the changes? Currently the 4k does not even have a GIF on the page.
