How far are you from the PBS transmitter?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 channels are detected. Normally I am using an amplified 50m Amazon Basics antenna. Connected directly to the TV, I get the full compliment of Raleigh, NC OTA stations.
Any hints that can be offered? I read something about adding in stations manually? Can that be done?
to Satelliteguys Scott!18.1 miles according to tcfool. See attachment --- the PBS station is first on the list, WUNC.
It could be something in the PBS signal, sometimes they do transmit odd things. But that hasn't been proven. Another poster in the Chicago area on DBSTalk has the same issue and he narrowed his down to WGN's signal in his area though, so that leads me to believe it could possibly be signal related vs simply a PBS issue. I'd try reducing the signal and see if the channels you want to receive still will scan in. If they do you can put everything back the way it is and it should work fine.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 level is whats required to get the scan to complete. If it is the PBS signal content, there is not two much I can do.
