Been trying to set up a HDHR-US on a Windows 10 PC.
Tuners are shown, but a channel scan doesn't add anything.
Connecting a TV directly to my same OTA antenna finds/saves channels fine.
Device ID - 10170B67
Firmware - 20210422
If someone could look at the logs it would be appreciated.
Reception, channel detection, network issues, CableCARD setup, etc.

It's getting good signal strength, but no signal quality. There's signal there, but it's not coming in clearly enough. How is your antenna setup? Does the antenna work if connected to a normal TV set?
Still trying to get this to see some channels, played with a few settings in there & still no luck.
Diagnostics still on for now.
I have (3) different in-room antenna setups that will let me scan + find + save + watch OTA channels on an older Insignia TV -
1 - an indoor type flat mouse-pad like cheapo Homeworx antenna.
2 - an indoor type amplified rabbit ear box with a 10 way internal rotor (Radio Shack 15-255).
3 - an outdoor type 2-bay bowtie Eagle Aspen DTV2BUHF-2.
I have tried all (3) setups with the HDHomerun.
Even though there are no actual channels saved when trying to run "HDHomerun setup", it seems I can open up "HD Homerun config_gui" & get a different view that lets me manually scroll thru OTA channels 1-51, even though none of them are actually viewable & I can see fluctuating signal strengths.
I went to channel 15 as it is one of the strongest OTA channels for my area & I can see some pretty significant variations in the signal strength percentage.
Leaving that open & watching it for a few minutes has the signal strength bouncing all over continuously, from say mid 40% all the way to 100%.
Even if I my antenna setups were not the best, I would have thought I''d at least be able to pickup the strongest of my OTA channels.
Can the diagnostics on your end show whether or not there's a hardware issue (like a failing power supply) or if there are network issues such as windows 10 firewall settings and/or maybe some settings in my router ?.
I'm new to this HDHomerun stuff so I am still learning.
Unless you know for a fact the power supply is fairly recent, it's probably the power supply. Any wall wart inevitably starts to go bad after about 5 years, and that device is about 10 years old, so it's probably due.
