It was the most sensitive one we could find on the market. The question you ask about sensitivity is even a little tough to answer. The device is software-configurable for any of these standards, allowing manufacturers to re-use designs in multiple markets. MaxLinear assumes no responsibility for consequences of the use of this information. Based on MaxLinear's breakthrough , are available for a variety of applications and standards from MaxLinear as well as from MaxLinear's ,.
VegasSteve - That's indeed the tuner we use. Sure, there is a sensitivity figure associated with the chip itself, but even more important are isolation and filter circuits. MaxLinear is providing this information as of the date of this release and does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this release as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. I have one channel where I get dropouts of a second here and there, and the only difference is that the Tablo records nothing when there is no signal, so there is no pause, it just skips. The only way to definitively state that one setup is better than others is to do a very expensive and difficult engineering study. I will be honest, my Tablo works great and I love it. Re-reading my comments I see where it came off as stronger than I intended.
I can say that in my case, the Tablo pretty much records exactly what I see directly from the antenna. Then be sure to attend , taking place Oct. Additionally, the MxL608 provides extremely low power consumption of approximately 400 milliwatts mW. As far as the anecdotal evidence presented here in the forums by other users, my guess and it is only a guess is that it is heat related. Also in contrast to larger some as large as 2 X 4 in. Gone are the days when a design could be thrown over the wall to production. I have noted that with a forum member supplied amp things are cleaner for all devices.
Have a question about this project? Even with such a test all that would be proven is that one tuner works better than the other under controlled conditions. If you find quality problems about our products after receiving them , you could test them and apply for unconditional refund if it can be proved. Companies can configure the solution for any of these standards, which allows them to re-use the same design in various markets. Thanks philsoft, yep, makes sense. Want to learn more about the latest in communications and technology? Those seem pretty good on the MxL600 chip. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause actual results to be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. I would also guess that tuners in televisions tend to run a little cooler.
I have channels which I am on the fringe of their signal level for reception. Television technology will undergo a dramatic makeover in the next several years, as terrestrial, satellite, and cable broadcasters make the transition from analog to digital. This not only helps in receiving very weak signals but also prevents receiver front end overloads. Video products for post production, signal conversion, multicast to broadcast conversion, signal processing, digital video production and more. The MxL603 delivers an unprecedented noise figure of 3. Envisioning Original Maxlinear Abstract: No abstract text available Text:. Semiconductor industry performance was negatively affected by the declining sales and first-quarter seasonality.
It is not surprising to find large variations in picture quality for the same model television set manufactured with can tuners, where the frequency response can typically vary several dBs across a manufacturing lot. I am using a Winegard Flatwave. There is a general sense in these discussion groups that MaxLinear's source code could be ported to work with librtlsdr, but someone would have to make that happen. Based on MaxLinear's superior silicon ,. In addition, both the MaxLinear and Panasonic Semiconductor devices have very high levels of integration that enable a fully featured system in a very small board footprint. Then, if you have signal issues I recommend you concentrate on improving your antenna system.
MaxLinear , Inc , is not a guarantee of characteristics. . The MxL608 delivers best-in-class typical noise figure of 4. So all we are saying is buy a Tablo and test it. Making it the perfect solution for various cable and terrestrial set-top box products, the MxL603 caters to all global cable and terrestrial broadcast specifications. All forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.
MaxLinear is located in Carlsbad, California, and its address on the Internet is. I know if I get a bigger antenna the problem would go away. MxL and the MaxLinear logo are trademarks of MaxLinear, Inc. Such things would involve a statistically significant sampling of both devices, perhaps 50 or more of each. Especially since I had a most exasperating day to that point, mostly dealing with explaining complex issues to non-technical people. We took a lot of time and tested a lot of tuners before deciding on that one.
