I’ve been running channels dvr for several months. I have been using an older HDHomeRun extend with transcoding turned off.
All and all, it’s been a very nice experience for me.
However, I have one specific tv station that has a slight issue with antenna orientation. I’m using a flat antenna.
Most of the time the signal strength and signal quality are very useable, with signal quality over 80% on average.
However, on rainy days or windy days......you can guess.
So I’m at a point where I might consider future proofing my system. I’ve looked at the new HDHomeRun flex 4K devices and would consider an upgrade.
I’m looking for some general feedback from people who have used the older HDHomeRun extend devices and then updated their systems
Have the tuners in the new devices improved? I’m not talking about the ATSC 3.0 tuners, just the ATSC 1.0 tuners using the old standard for now.
I’m hoping to switch out my extend, use the same antenna setup but get better sensitivity/performance out of the newer tuner on the flex device.
For instance, I can use the same antenna directly into my TV, and it’s tuner is superior to my HDHomeRun extend, with no signal degradation anywhere near as bad as the extend due to atmospheric conditions.
Anyone have any experience with better tuner performance on the later units.
Thank you all!
