Thank you so much! For some reason, I find their website really hard to navigate.

Re: RF over IP: Is it possible?

Okay so here's the deal. Turns out up in Riley Twp, a 40 foot tower will hardly do any good for getting a half decent signal so I might stick with my current setup, which makes things slightly less practical. However, I still really want to try this project. I currently only have 10 Mbps of upload s...

Re: RF over IP: Is it possible?

To send one full ATSC channel, you're going to need about 19MbPS (plus a little more for overhead) to get that channel from location "A" to location "B" with zero degradation. It would be best if you could just demod the signal with an ATSC decoder, encapsulate that stream and transport it to locat...

Actually no. It was made to call out a few people on this forum without calling them by name.

As the repack continues, TVFool still doesn't have an updated transmitter database. What's going to happen?

It hasn't been updated since January 2017. With the repack here, it would be wise to stop trusting it so much due to inaccuracy. Any alternatives, perhaps?

Re: RF over IP: Is it possible?

I have an idea. Perhaps I could have it so whatever is capturing the RF signals only captures one channel at a time (6 MHz of bandwidth) and from the client-end, there's an uplink to the other end that tells the other device what channel to switch to. Theoretically, this can only be done with a modi...

Re: RF over IP: Is it possible?

We used to joke about doing that, after we started doing "ATM over IP" and "video over IP", it seemed to be the logical next step! It is possible but not really practical. You can "record" raw RF (digitized) to disk, so it would not be that hard to take that digitized stream and transport it with I...

RF over IP: Is it possible?

My family doesn't want to have a 40 foot tall antenna mast in our yard so we want to put it up in some property we have in Riley Township. Problem is, we obviously can't run a coaxial cable that far and I don't want to deal with network tuners compressing the hell out of the signal, so is there any ...

I really hope they nail this episode because it would be such a waste of potential if they do. So much potential. Hopefully they do a good job.

If that were true these people would be talented, and radio today has zero talent, so bye-bye DJ or “air talent” It's a shame really. DJing is now one of the lowest ranking jobs in our country.
