I am looking to "cut the cord" so I have been experimenting with different broadcast sources and recording programs. My objective is to find the best quality recording without cable.
The 4 combinations I have tried are
- ChannelsDVR – OTA
- SageTV – HDHomeRun Prime – Comcast
- ChannelsDVR – Locast
- PlayOn – CW app
The first observation is 5.1 audio is not available with streaming services as the source (Locast, CW app).
The video quality is not significantly different. (ASTC 3.0 is not available in the NYC area yet.)
I used MediaInfo to get detailed info.
