That's awesome! I didn't realize the 2-51 fix was so easy. I have non-tv signals on rf55-64 out here too and the hdhomerun software wastes time trying to lock them. Unfortunately I haven't had any luck compiling source code before (but I do understand what I have to change in the hdhomerun_channels.c file). Not sure if my computer is set up for it. I just got a new windows 10 desktop.

orbot, get urself a raspberrypi, and use it to get a little linux under ur belt.
I looked around a little and honestly don't think I have the passion to figure out
building programs in windows. :)

majortom, thanks for looking into it, I also tried building the program myself over the past few days but just couldn't figure it out. Luckily a programmer on another forum was able to build the program for windows, so in case someone else wants a windows version of hdhomerun_config.exe with channel range of 2-51 or 2-37 for use with the rabbitears Live Bandscan software, here's a link: https://ln2.sync.com/dl/365fd3b80/atuxxqjh-i6k4uatb-i9khutqi-6ijfqfcq (I just copy/pasted one of the x86 hacked exe files over the original hdhomerun_config.exe file that came with the Silicon Dust software and it worked)

Nice orbot... Good man...
The beauty of open source software, if ya see something ya don't like,
you are free to change it.

edit: I haven't tested it since i don't run windows, but judging by the filename shouldn't the one be '2-36', and not '2-37'?
37 remains clear everywhere for astronomy.

The 2-37 file was sort of a "bonus", I mentioned that in 2 years there wouldn't be anymore channels above 37 and I might bump the thread one day, so the programmer built another file and I didn't want to bother them any longer. :)

I've been using the 2-51 file since yesterday and the live bandscanner is just blazing through now that it ignores the cell signals above 51, it's great!
