Boston channels in Maine?
I'm in Gorham ME and for quite a while now I've stopped cable TV and just kept cable internet.
For tuners I have 2 HDHomerun units. One does transcoding and the older one doesn't. I get about 28 channels on my antenna. I was reprogramming the tuners and antenna a couple days ago thinking I might ditch WMC and go completely with Next PVR with Kodi. Everything went fine and as expected.
OK. Now this morning I was updating my HDHomerun unit for antenna on my android tablet, and it scans tons of extra channels. I thought something went wrong. So I tested a few and they worked. I'm getting WBZ and all the networks out of Boston and even ION and ION Life. Good signal quality, too.
I had to get to work so I couldn't play with it as long as wanted, but I'll check it out again in about an hour when I get home. Maybe I can get these channels on my main HTPC, but like I said, I just reprogrammed them a couple days ago. I wonder if these stations are just some form of atmospheric "skip" and will be gone tonight.
If anyone knows about anything new that's causing this, let me know.
