Hi guys, I'm trying to stream ABC 4:2:2 feeds on G16 with no luck. Do you have any suggestions? My setup is as follows:

Receiver: OS MIO+ 4K with TNAP 4 firmware
Signal strength for ABC feeds on G16 = 11.6 dB

I have tried all these devices with no luck, however all devices do stream 4:2:0 video such as the Caribbean mux just fine:

Android tablet running DreamDroid with VLC (or using built in decoder)
PC accessing OpenWebIF and VLC
Raspberry Pi (Linux) accessing OpenWebIF and VLC

All devices play 4:2:0 feeds fine but just a black screen with 4:2:2 feeds. I appreciate any feedback you have.

Regards,
Alan Rovner

I stream the ABC and CBS 4:2:2 services daily to both Android / DreamDroid with VLC and Windows 8/10 PCs using OpenWebIF and VLC.

Same on ABC and CBS? Do you get the audio or both blank video and blank audio? What Image and version?

Hi Brian, I don't know where the CBS feeds are located, so I haven't tried them. I'm running TNAP 4.0 dated 12/20/20. On the MIO receiver I get what look like squares from previously used channels and sometimes audio. I realize the 4:2:2 signals won't decode on the receiver. And as I said I don't get audio or video when trying to stream from an external device. Maybe my dish needs some tweaking, I'm not sure.

I believe they're at 89W. C-band of course. They scan in as SN2A/B/C/D/R

The TNAP version is fine. ABC feeds are on 95w and 99W, CBS is on 89w.

I don't use the ABC99w feeds, so will have to check if they stream on my system. Tesla damaged the BUD motor cabling on the shop roof while installing solar panels. Need to fix as soon as they are off the roof. Hopefully, before the weekend.

Both networks work here with TNAP 4.x streaming to windoze pc running Kodi. All wired gig ethernet though, no wifi.

This may be a novice question but here goes. Is OS Mio 4k able to playback a 4:2:2 recording or Is the ability of an Android box to playback 4:2:2 feed related to the support within the Amlogic chip that isn't supported by the decoder chip within the OS Mio 4k?

The mio can't decode 4:2:2. You'll need to stream it via vlc or some other program that can decode it.
