Channel on Legacy but not 4th gen

Channel ,20.1 is on Legacy but not the 4th gen. Does Legacy decode MPEG4 and 4Th gen not?

Channel 20.1 Call Letters?

KADF-LD is ACE in Austin 20.1

I can tell you that the legacy 3rd Gen network Tablo does not have the MPEG-4 video codec, so I can’t detect WAPT 16.6 HSN in Jackson, Mississippi (not a big loss in my book). I am not sure about the legacy 3rd Gen HDMI Tablo though.

I have original Quad and it received channel 20.1. 4fh gen does not get it. I am trying to find the specs.

Sell the gen 4 - keep the OG quad.

I didn’t see if Mpeg 2 or 4. Maybe @TabloTV can tell me if 4th gen decides MPEG4

That was a list of stations rabbitears knows as broadcasting mpeg4. Your station wasn’t in the list. Why do you think it is broadcasting mpeg4.

Original Tablo Quad received it and the 4tn gen doesn’t. 4th gen
. Tablo didn’t list what it decodes. Same antenna on both. Amplifier on or off does not make a difference

Beside saying it transcoded to H.264 HLS the OG model didn’t say what OTA input format was supported.

But Legacy DOES show it, which is why I want to know about 4th gen. Rabbitears could have missed some stations or station could have changed.

Don’t see it.

Additional Information Date First Available June 25, 2014

This is Legacy. H.264 video format is MPEG4 (I Googled). That explains why Legacy 5receves it.

What about 4,th gen?

Edit; found it and 4,th gen is only MPEG2 as I expected. Now if @TabloTV will inform support

The latest version of Tablo hardware has been totally redesigned inside and out, with a sleek new form factor that is flexible enough to mount on your wall or sit on a table.

Inside Tablo are two powerful ATSC 1.0 tuners which deliver full quality MPEG2 video and an optional in-line amplifier to help lock in over-the-air channels from your TV antenna. There’s also 50+ hours of onboard DVR recording storage which can be expanded by connecting a USB hard drive (up to 8TB).
