Channel change delay

Post by JoeHanson »

Using the Windows 10 app, it takes about 3 seconds to change channels. Is this to be expected or will it improve with firmware improvements?

ATSC 3.0 will be slower to start playing compared to ATSC 1.0.

ATSC 1.0 has a key frame needed to start playback every 1/2 second.
ATSC 3.0 has 3-4 times the distance between key frames.

BTW - if you are in Phoenix it is taking longer than normal due to an audio issue.
