TuningSpace Property

Summary

Gets or sets the current tuning space.

Syntax

C#
VB
C++
public int TuningSpace { get; set; } 
Public Property TuningSpace As Integer 
public: 
property int TuningSpace { 
   int get(); 
   void set (    int ); 
} 

Property Value

A value representing the tuning space identifier.

Remarks

Gets or sets the current tuning space. A tuning space is a set of information about the available channels and the channel to frequency mapping, which can identify a particular network provider or broadcast source. Multiple tuning spaces can be determined and stored for use in multiple areas. To get the most precise frequency for a particular channel, use the AutoTune method. Once the frequencies for all channels have been found by using the AutoTune method, this information can be stored by calling the StoreAutoTune method. For more detailed information, refer to the Microsoft documentation for IAMTuner.get_TuningSpace.
