Interface for my mother

Is there an interface I can get for my mother, so she can watch normal TV? This is through a Prime. We currently have her on two cable boxes, but I'm trying to get rid of the $20/month it costs for those. We have no channels that are DRM. I was thinking FireTV. Does this make sense? How is the inter...

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

I did not know that. Thank you.

I currently have to use a tuning adapter for my current Prime. Does this mean I'd need another tuning adapter for this second Prime too?

And exactly what is a "tuning adapter" and why do I need it/

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

Well, that sucks. Is there any path forward for those of us remaining on cable? I'd love to add 3 channels to my 3 channel system, so I could get off cable boxes, but was hoping to not buy a used prime.

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

I use Plex - it supports multiple units. I have two Primes installed, giving me 6 tuner support. The only downside is that I have to pay for two cable cards instead of one. An additional $10 per month. I was thinking of buying another HD Homerun Prime, though they seem to be expensive on Ebay. This...

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

If cable cards still work for a few years, I'd get a Prime. I like the system I have and I HATE cable boxes.

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Thank you for all that info. If anyone is using HD homerun and Unraid (as a NAS), I figured it out. I used a docker called binhex-minidlna on the unraid NAS. That was not running after reboot of the unraid server, and was not set to startup upon reboot. So, I ran it and also set it to start automati...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

We had a power outage yesterday while Kodi and my HT computer were running. The link between Kodi and the storage location for the PVR seems to be broken now. That is, when I go to recorded TV in Kodi, there is no recorded TV, and when Koki records something, it appears to be "lost". That is, Kodi n...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

You would probably get better responses to that in the third party section and based on the question, not sure if you meant front end as it sounds like you are talking back end... this is about use of Kodi with SD's DVR thus "nothing" to do with kodi as far as the DVR goes only that one creates the...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

This is a very impressive effort. I will have to look into setting the priority to high for Kodi. What "front end" do people use for the DVR for Kodi? Right now, I have the "normal" Kodi front end, but the timer function does not allow me to record between two times. In other words, I want to record...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Did the channel trick and this worked. The channels already have the numbers in front of them after this trick. I only have one PVR component at this time (I think I might have had Next PVR also at one time). I have not seen whether the future recordings are OK, as I'm watching the men's final of th...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I have installed this, and it seems to work well with "normal" Kodi (I'm going to try to install with Emby and an Emby skin; I'm not sure how that will go). My only issue is that the channel mapping is totally messed up. Channel 727 (in the HD Homerun Prime) comes in at a completely different chann...
