Nope ...anything new on this?
That's what I once thought ...i thought it was in limited release, not testing.
I wondered that for the AM21 once - i.e. buy a USB OTA dongle using the same chip with the same USB ID and it "should" work. When I plugged an AM21 into my laptop, it had a USB identifier string that listed "Directv", so I am guessing the ID (8 hex digits) was probably uniquely assigned to Directv so I never looked further. When someone gets the OTA dongle, they can try plugging it into a PC and see what USB ID it uses, and see one can buy something with the same ID on the net.Has anyone tried a non-LCC USB OTA dongle? I don't have one handy, but probably have one in the back of a box. I'm just wondering if there is anything "special" on the LCC that identifies it.
The way the ATSC 3.0 rollout is planned, stations will be required to keep their ATSC 1.0 signals around (but no requirement about quality or HD AFAIK) which they will do via channel sharing. So if you have five full power stations in your area, you might see two of them go ATSC 3.0 and the three remaining ones will carry the channels of the stations that went ATSC 3.0. There hasn't been any plan yet for if/when they will allow stations to drop ATSC 1.0 completely, but suffice to say that day would be many years away.I wonder how any of this stuff works when the atsc 3.0 rollout happens . will the am21 work at all at that point?
There are no ATSC 2 broadcasts, there is only 1.0 and 3.0. AFAIK there aren't any ATSC 3.0 chips for the open market yet. South Korea is already using ATSC 3.0 in a couple cities, and supposedly some TVs sold for that market include a pre-standard ATSC 3.0 tuner.it would need to work with atsc2 and atsc 3
are there any atsc 3 tuners on the market?
