Feedback on Beta ATSC 3.0 audio upgrade

Setup M1 Mac mini Monterey, Parallels Desktop 17, Windows ARM 11.

Video works with the Microsoft Store codex on my ATSC 3 stations
Audio works with my ATSC 3 stations.

Lip sync is pretty good. Take a while to tune into an ATSC 3.0 station.

HDHomeRun looses the station when changing the window size. Need to toggle a different channel to get the video/audio back.
That lose is probably something to do with all that virtualization.

edit: Interlaced material does not deinterlace properly but that material is all ATSC 2.0

You mean ATSC 1.0? Think 2.0 was a standard that was never implemented. ;)

yes Soapdiskbandit,

the edit should read:

Interlaced material does not deinterlace properly, but that material is all not ATSC 3.0

Wanted to say good job with this update. Using the Windows 10 app, and previously for me it seemed like sound on ATSC 3.0 stations was quieter and flatter compared to ATSC 1.0. This seems to have improved significantly from my experience

Amazing update testing on Shield TV Pro 2015 which previously couldn't handle the AC4 audio and everything working great.

Edit : Spoke too soon being a beta not criticizing but after about 15 min of playing a ATSC 3.0 stream (Fox 7.1 in Austin TX) the entire app crashes.

I had a stop after a few minutes playing ATSC 3.0 on the Windows 10 version too. Maybe related to stopping when changing from windowed to full screen.

Still both versions are a step forward.
