Well, it’s working today. Not sure what the problem was. If no one else in the area experienced problems then something’s up with my setup.

Looking across other threads, not finding the answer.

Is there a schedule/guide somewhere to know when/if/where 4k-source content is actually being broadcast?

Not really. Any 4k on-air would most likely be experimental and only last for one program. There could be a station somewhere that has the bandwidth to do a 4k HDR up-convert just to say they've done it.

They won't do it till there's enough demand for it. Right now it's just basically testing and figuring things out. The video quality still seems a bit better than regular atsc 1.0 HD and hopefully soon one of the channels here will at least do some 4k to actually see how it does, looks, and sounds.
I can't even play or edit it with anything right now except for playing it with our app and on the Shield. I really need something that can edit my captures but nothing works yet that I've tried.
VideoRedo MAY eventually support editing it if they decide to pay for the AC4 codec or somebody else releases it in their codec pack or program.

Is it just me or are KATU (ABC) 102.1 and KOIN (CBS) 106.1 off the air?

I noticed about a week ago when I did a rescan for KGW (NBC) 8.1 frequency change... 2.1 and 6.1 remain but the HEVA equivalents seem to be missing on my setup.

KRCW, RF ch. 33, has been off the air since July the 9th. It is one of two ATSC3 hosts in Portland. I don’t know why, but speculate that it’s due to (according to KOIN’s web site) major antenna work going on on the tower.

While I’m on the topic, ATSC3 station KORS-CD, RF ch. 16, has been off the air since June 24th and ATSC3 station KOXO-CD, RF ch. 15, since May the 9th.
