Channel 5000-5004 in Chicago

Post by TomZ »

I just hooked up my 4k unit and decided to scan in Chicago not expecting anything different than my regular HDHomerun. Well, channels 5000, 5001, 5002, 5003, and 5004 were found.
The problem is when I tune them in I just get a message saying there is "no video data". Does this mean there is some sort of ATSC 3.0 signal going out, but not yet online? I don't have a DEV unit, so I don't think I can get any more info about this.
Thanks,
Tom

5000-range channels are channels that aren't named/numbered.

When using an antenna channels reported like this are usually too weak to receive audio/video/numbering but the HDHomeRun was able to pick up just enough to identify that channels exist.
