You can sure see a quality hit on 10.1 during the NFL game. They've got it throttled to a max of 7.5kbps dropping as low as 4kpbs. By comparison, WTVT, which is running basketball, is hovering around 10mbps.Now chan 10.8 pops ups on the Sammy led. ME chan. My Sony OLED does not pick up new chans without a scan.
MeTV is back up on WTSP, this time with the proper PSIP, making it show up as 32.2. Or that's how it's SUPPOSED to look. Currently getting < 1.5kbpsSeems the ME chan was gone for a while and now moved again. So tired of all the moving around and having to scan and delete stuff all the time.
This is pretty well covered in the lengthy, but informative ATSC 3.0 thread. I'll give you some Cliff's Notes on it all for starters...Until the other night when my DVR popped up a message that it couldn't tune to record Hogan's Heroes, I'd never given ATSC3.0 much thought. Since then I've read a bit about it, from what I gather it will add some options like better compression, additional formats, surround > 5.1.
I think you mean local stations or network affiliates. Two things:1) What's in it for the (local) networks?
There's no rush to sunset 1.0. They won't do that until nearly everyone is viewing via 3.0 as it'd impact ratings. Think 10-15 years down the road. That's when these sharing stations will revert back to their own sticks, which will allow for more services and other, non-television uses.(as I understand it, once they start broadcasting 3.0, they have to continue broadcasting 1.0, so the sooner they start 3.0 the sooner they can drop 1.0 and presumedly free up some bandwidth for other stuff).
That's the million-dollar question. Trade publications and the media keep touting "4K," but that's hard to do with channel-sharing. Plus, no network has indicated any interest in doing a 4K buildout as there's no way to make back the investment. This is why what 4K sports you DO see usually involves some subscription. PQ has never driven ratings. The onus is on broadcasters to come up with something that's gotta-have. A small bump in PQ probably won't send throngs of people out to sink $$ in new televisions or set-top boxes. They have to be careful. Driving viewers from cable to OTA is counterproductive thanks to the huge retransmission fees they get.2) What's in it for me?
TiVo should eventually update. I don't record anything from MOR, so there's no rush. I will update Windows Media Center, myself, if need be.I have a ticket open with Schedules Direct to update their program guide info for the 1.0 channels that moved off RF18. I mentioned to them that there would be new programs on RF18, but I don't have a 3.0 capable tuner, so I won't be able to test/confirm any changes.
Pamela Barber, president and general manager of Heart Television, said: “We want consumers to understand that the NextGen TV experience from local stations will be getting better and better, as more functions and features are added down the road. NextGen TV services launch in 1080P high-definition, with WMOR-TV also providing the market’s first High Dynamic Range video for enhanced performance on HDR-equipped receivers.”
