show TSID in hdhomerun_config_gui?

Post by orbot »

The hdhomerun_config_gui is very handy and it's great for DXing because you can leave it on an RF channel until it gets strong enough to lock and show the programs from a distant channel. Sometimes a channel will only semi-lock for a brief moment and show programs with no callsigns or virtual numbers, leaving a mystery. I've noticed in my raw logs that the TSID is always recorded even when a channel only semi-locks with no callsigns/virtual numbers, so could the TSID also be included on the config_gui window to give a clue to help identify the channel?

It happened again with another channel yesterday during some eskip. I feel like an idiot for not realizing this before, but I think the next time a partial lock happens in the config_gui I can just use "hdhomerun_config ID get /tuner#/streaminfo" from the command line to see the TSID, as long as the partial lock results are left "in memory" in the config_gui like in the screenshot above, right?

Yes, that should work. It will report the last known TSID.

Awesome, that helped identify a channel from Columbus this morning, what a life saver!
