I did a quick look thru the first few pages and did a search, but didn't see anything.
Is/was there a problem with SD sub channels? I never used this as a OTA anything, just a media player, but I did a re-scan (from when I bought this) and in spite of the system finding (id'ing) most of the sub channels, they only show a blank screen (with the ID in the upper corner). Only the 'HD' channels show. The one (kind of) exception is one station that places it's 'HD' service on a sub channel; dot 2, not dot 1.
That tells me that this won't play SD subs. Also, one low power station, it's main channel is SD and that doesn't show either.
Separately, no guide data showed on any of the 'main' channels on any station, but I didn't give it a whole lot of time (which may be the problem), unless something else changed.
Any member still using this as a OTA tuner (at least) confirm or deny the above?
Recording free OTA TV for 'time shifting' has been here since 1975. Will there be DVR's to do the same when ATSC3 obsoletes existing DVR's??
