Hi Klaas,

I am attaching the requested data.

I recently acquired a SiliconDust Flex which allows me to pull in ATSC 3.0.
I only have one set of stations broadcasting in HEVC and they are currently
just doing 1080p and stereo. I am hopeful they will start broadcasting some
4k content as well as atmos surround sound soon.

Gary has written a tool which allows the channel table to be populated from
SchedulesDirect data instead of doing a channel scan, but this is only
viable if the user is using SchedulesDirect. I assume you are not, but you
still might find these tools interesting:
