    New Guide UI now rolling out (plus HDR support!)

    With my C61 and HR44, I would turn on the mini and it would take one to two minutes be be fully responsive and functional. Now it is up and running in less than 10 seconds! The upgrade seems to much better in getting the mini fully booted quickly. Sent from my Nexus 9 using Tapatalk

    22 and subs OTA am21 in Raleigh

    I have a hr44/am21 -- was on a few years back getting setup info. Had a dickens of a time with the WUNC PBS channels hanging the am21 scan. Seems that has been resolved, as a recent scan (to get cozi tv on 5.2) worked just fine. However I see from seaching around that 22.4 in raleigh is...

    Anyone Here Using the HR54 with an AM21?

    OK -- lots of experimentation tonight. The upshot is at least in the Raleigh zip, as soon as the WUNC (25 / 11.1, 11.2, 11.3) get strong enough for the AM21 to recognize a signal is there, the scanning locks up. First I tried the varying lengths of coax -- no stations. Second I tried the...

    Anyone Here Using the HR54 with an AM21?

    Right -- I read that post this morning. I have a plan. I have the directional map from TVfool overlaid on a google earth picture of my house. I should be able to reduce PBS enough, it is at 315 degrees, and most of the stations I really care about are at 106 degrees. That's a good bit of separation.

    Anyone Here Using the HR54 with an AM21?

    So it is signal level? From reading I did not get there was a consensus as to it being something in that PBS signal (content) verses the strength of the signal. If it is strength, I can try without the amp to see if I get anything. If it hangs I can shield it a delta at a time until the signal...

    Anyone Here Using the HR54 with an AM21?

    I have tried a 5ft and 15ft length of coax. I will unplug the amplifier tonight and try when I get home. I was thinking of putting some sheet metal between the antenna and the PBS tower, to see if I could block that signal enough to get it to scan to 100%. Any ideas on making a directional...

    18.1 miles according to tcfool. See attachment --- the PBS station is first on the list, WUNC.

    Anyone Here Using the HR54 with an AM21?

    Well I need full integration with the DirectTV guide, are there third party tuners that fully integrate and allow recording? I imagine that would require a reverse engineering of the USB protocol DirectTV uses.

    Anyone Here Using the HR54 with an AM21?

    New to the forum and satellite TV, buts lots of computer hardware and software experience. In Raleigh, NC -- just got a AM21n and connected to my HR44 (0xb23 software) and am getting the "stuck at 66%" scanning issue. Without an antenna, and even with 5ft of coax, the scan completes, but no...
