Two tuners and two antennas in different directions

Post by PerfectHT » Tue Feb 18, 2020 8:58 am

I have two tuner sand two antennas set in different directions. I used advice how to modify registry, I did it but there is no way to assign channels to antennas.
Both tuners found the same channels but channels from South don't work well on antenna facing North and and channels from North do not work well on South antenna.
I can assign channels to antenna on WMC, but not on Kodi, so I tried to do it on tuners. It will be the best way because all devices looking for TV signal would get strong channels. I can't do it on HDHomeRun setup.
Any advice?
Best Regards

"Disable" the poorly-received channels in EACH hdhr's lineup, so that it will only select the respective [better-receiving] device when you select a specific channel.

Keep in mind that such disabling requires modern tuners (though these days I generally look at kodi also requiring modern tuners)

Thanks a lot guys. I was on this page before but I have no idea that double click solves my problem. I did it. Will see how it works.
