Issues with QAM channels on 3 tuner, 1 QAM 2 ATSC


Post by seanbperiod » Fri Jun 09, 2017 2:37 am

I've been having issues getting FOX and ABC to record from my WinTV USB which is set to tune QAM.

I also have an HDHomerun which grabs ATSC channels with no problem. However, FOX and ABC don't always have a steady signal, so I want the QAM tuner to be selected first. However, I can only get those channels to load if I load another channel (PBS) from the QAM tuner first. If it has been recording from ATSC and then tries to switch to the QAM tuner, it will say no signal.

The other odd thing is that the PBS channel on QAM doesn't have this issue, and I can flip between that channel and the other ATSC channels with no problem. It's just the ABC and FOX channels on QAM that aren't able to be tuned if ATSC was previously tuned.

Does anyone know why this might be happening or how to fix? I had no issues with it when I was temporarily using NextPVR.
