HD HomeRun Channel Scans


Due to failure of our in-home wifi system, some of my HD Home Run receivers cannot communicate with the network to log the scan results and my HDHR program cannot transmit data to the internet.

Below you'll find links to the results of live channel scans of my two HD Home Run receivers.  One receiver has two inputs, the other has one input, so I am able to monitor three antennas.  The results, shown below, show the signals received by each receiver.

The channels on my HD Home Run receivers are labeled 0 though 4.  The antennas on Channel 4 are on a rotor, so the signals shown there will, of course, vary a lot depending on where the antennas are pointed.  The other antennas are all locked down, so readings will be similar for every scan, but will show changing conditions.

I am located at an elevation of 315 feet above sea level near the geological center of San Francisco, California.  To see photos of my antennas, visit my antenna page.  For a list of the stations within 100 miles of this location check out my DTV-HDTV Channel Lists.

In the local scans for each channel you'll find the frequency and channel number shown, and "Lock" followed by "8vsb" if over the air TV reception is found on the channel.  This is followed by the Signal Strength (ss), the Siqnal to Noise Quality (snq) and Signal Error Quality (seq).  The value of "seq" is based on the number of uncorrectable digital errors detected.  Next is the unique TSID assigned to each station by the FCC which is transmitted by the station along with the PSIP information showing program channels, virtual channels and the identification of each virtual channel.

If there is a lock but no TSID or PSIP information is shown, the signal was not strong enough or did not have sufficient quality for the information to be detected by the tuner. The HDHR tuners are not as good as some of the tuners in my home TV receivers in rejecting multipath, so I am often able to watch channels that do not appear here with PSIP information.

The scans from my receivers are also sent to the Rabbit Ears website: http://www.rabbitears.info/ for their "Live Bandscan" pages.  Maps are available at Rabbit Ears. You'll find links to the maps below.
