Has anyone else had their broadcast drop out and return to the program menu? I get this consistently. Sometimes it's after 15-20 minutes and other times it's after two. I have a Connect using an OTA antenna hooked up to a Roku Premire+, all connected via Ethernet. No problems with dropped signals with the Android and Windows apps.
(new) SiliconDust HD HomeRun Connect Quatro (OTA) (FW 20190621)
(new) Roku Ultra 4660X (FW 9.1.0 - build 4111-46)
(older) Samsung TV (maybe 3 years old)
Had to change Roku sound to Dolby Digital to get the sound working (had first tested on a HomeTheatre setup where it worked fine out of the box).
Channel 5.1 WRAL NBC in RDU, NC will rarely
load or drop )as described above) if it does load. Occasionally
, channel 11.1 WTVD ABC will not load or will drop -- but it is the weakest signal being received and displays occasional stutter / drops on the HomeTheatre system). These are the only channels with such an issue on the Roku and HD App combination. Would be nice to resolve.
UPDATE: The issue seems dependent on content. If the local news broadcast, the station plays immediately just fine, most of the time. A live NFL game dropped every 30 minutes like the OP stated. Some other national broadcasts would never load -- ever, at all, like the Today show (3 hrs while I was testing in AM), ET @ 7PM (testing; never opened), etc. Now today, even a local news broadcast would not load during its first 15 minutes.
I also have a WMC in a different area of the house that I have been using for nearly 10 years (with a Dual ATSC Tuner HDHR-US). It is happy with the new Quattro and does just fine playing and recording; even station 5.1 and 11.1. So guess it is a Roku player issue?
While HD HomeRun does appear in the Roku Media Player DLNA stream, it will rarely load / play any
channel even though the HD app is fine with most channels. Not sure what the difference there is if this is the same media player though ...
