Only pointing it out because broadcasters normally don't do ANY work on Weekends, let alone a holiday weekend, so when something goes out on a friday night, can expect it to not come back until monday at the earliest. Kinda doubt anyone is actually working there.,

From what I see in the spectrum, the ATSC3 signal from Buffalo is still down, so I think he is looking at the ATSC 1 signal today.

What was airing on the ATSC 3.0 lighthouse was still HD. So far the only ATSC 3.0 station broadcasting 4K content is a paid OTA service called evoca tv in Boise, Idaho. The device that your were watching the feed from your HDHomerun on probably enhanced the colors.

Because that is how the ATSC3 system is remapping the channels.

folcan99, yes a different tuner for ATSC 3.0/NextGen TV. It's a completely different technology from ATSC 1.0

Here's a complete straight forward read on ATSC 3.0>>>

Lol, i know all about 3.0, i was wondering if those particular channels mentioned would be viewable now without the 3.0 but i guess not and i dont think that there are really any tuners with 3.0 available at this moment.

Yes, they are all viewable in their regular ATSC 1.0 locations.
In addition, in return for WNYO carrying their main programs in atsc3, the other main networks each carry one
of wnyo's subchannels on their atsc1 transmissions. Since WNYO no longer has a atsc1 transmission.

folcan99 I guess if you really knew all about ATSC 3.0 you would know that Silicon Dust's HDHomerun 4k tuner has been out for several months already, which has two ATSC 1.0 tuners and two ATSC 3.0 tuners :)

You say you know all about ATSC 3.0 but you weren't clear in what you meant about having a 3.0 tuner to view those channels.

those numbers are that high because that's what hdhomerun receiver has assigned them to. i f you use a company receiver they could use a different system to adentify the atsc 3 channels. you can buy the hdhomerun 4k receiver on amazon usa for $199 us dollars if your looking for the receiver, thats where i bought the receiver from and it arrived to my place in 8 days here in ontario canada

If you have a smart TV, you can use the HDHomerun app.

So far, only the Zapperbox uses HDMI and it’s not fully available yet.

the app is available on most android devices threw google play store and is in the fire stick which i use. once you set up the hdhomerun threw the internet the app will recognize the hdhomerun device and let you watch you the hdhomerun app is also available in the windows store channels that the hdhomerun has scanned. some tv such as lg has the hdhomerun app in there store. also on xbox one device just make sure the device you are using is a 4k device to get the full affect of the device

Does anybody see a difference in signal reception between ATSC 1.0 vs 3.0?

Are you getting higher/better signal levels on your TV/receiver with the 3.0 signal?

Supposedly, 3.0 is less prone to interference/easier to receive.

Thanks for the info. I think i'll wait for the boxes to come out since 1.0 is still widely available. Will be some time before 3.0 is fully effective.
