Missing sub-channels, including primary!

Post by CharonPDX »

Just upgraded to the HDHR 4K, and doing the channel rescan with the same antenna, I'm now missing sub-channels on one station. Notably including the primary channel!

You can see I have 49.2 and 49.4, but I'm missing the main 49.1! (I only recall there being three total sub channels, so either they were missing 49.3, or for some reason 49.4 is what should be 49.3.)

Well, I just discovered the answer on my own - it turns out that 49.1 is one that has switched to ATSC 3.0, and is on the same physical channel as another channel that apparently I don't have good signal on - the other "49" sub-channels are on the "old" ATSC 1.0 physical channel. So since I'm not getting the ATSC 3.0 "master channel" that 49.1 is on, it isn't showing up.

So... Time to improve my antenna situation...

There are ATSC 1.0 versions of 49.1 and 49.3 available, they're being hosted by their sister station KPTV on RF 12:
