Re: Not much coming out for HDRadio except for cars
Is the vehicle reception any better than it was 3+ years ago?
In my experience:
- Home tuners are great because they aren't moving and they stay locked onto the signal
- Auto tuners cut in and out from digital to analog and it's quite annoying. I'd be ok with this 50+ miles outside of town but in an urban environment, it was pretty sucky.
For me, in the Atlanta metro area, it seemed as though inside the perimeter (beltway) the digital signal was pretty flakey. Outside the beltway the digital signal was pretty good for a surprising number of miles. Now, I know there are building, etc. but wasn't the point of HDRadio to help fix that so that it was better than it was?
The fact that the home and portable HDRadio receivers seem to be disappearing isn't a good sign. It should be standard in every receiver now. You should have to look to find a receiver that isn't HDRadio at this point, if they wanted it to take off.
