Re: Buying used Prime

Does anyone have information regarding any hardware revisions of the prime? I have 3 models purchased new from years ago. They have been rock solid for years now. I see that it appears there was a redesign of the box artwork at some point. Were the 3 tuner status lights also removed? Were there any ...

Re: Buying used Prime

If a used PRIME has been previously activated with Comcast and hasn't been removed from the previous owners account it may cause a problem when you go to activate it yourself with Comcast.
This was my fear. Thank you for the advice and for taking the time to reply!

Re: Buying used Prime

The prime doesn't come with a cablecard. You would rent a cablecard from xfinity with your account and insert it into the prime. Short answer is no, there will be no problem and there is no locking. Thank you, I currently have 3 primes with another cable card on its way. All 3 of my primes were pur...

Buying used Prime

I was just curious... if I purchase a used prime, is there a chance it could be locked / paired with the previous owner? Say I purchase a used prime that was previously paired with Comcast and I want to use it with my own Comcast... would there be issue?

Thanks!

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Alright sir, here's what I came up with for the Repeat indicator. LMK what you think. The only 'catch' to it is that it won't automatically propagate to EPG listings that Kodi already has, so turning the option ON or OFF would require a Guide reload to force the application of the indicator. Record...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I think square brackets instead of parentheses would look reasonable. [R] instead of (R). It would definitely be an option, disabled by default, and under "General" with the other such metadata-based options. The HDHomeRun DVR won't record the same episode of a series more than once unless you spec...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

How about if the recording is specifically flagged as first airing or the record start time is within 24 hours of the original air date? That seems to work out fairly well with my recordings. I'm not loving how the "(R)" looks appended to the episode title since Kodi likes to put those in parenthes...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Realize I was kind of repeating myself there. I just meant the letter r was sufficient vs the entire word repeat. I think it looked like epsidodename (R)

And with regards to how it was easiest to see original air date was at top of episode description.

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Perhaps it would be faster to see if the hdhomerun guys could provide an attribute for total storage that you could pass through to meet the kodi requirements? The two things that made navigating recorded tv easier in kodi was having the name of a repeat recording simply appended with an (R) at the ...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

commercial skipping is working great now. 2 things I've noticed since transitioning from serverwmc / wmc. If possible in the future having available storage space appear in kodi would be great. I understand that this info would need to be provided by hdhomerundvr. Serverwmc was able to send this dat...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Thank you again for your time on this. With regards to limitations on edl with Kodi, I have been mostly used to the functionality as currently present within it... ie I've been enjoying commercial skip with edl files for years now through serverwmc which is a kodi addon and backend that communicates...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I don't know who you are djp952, but I couldn't be more impressed with your attitude and dedication. Realistically your work might be the ONLY route I personally would choose to walk away from wmc. I've been heavily involved with diy dvr/pvr/media center for over 10 years. I've been running windows ...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I just want to say that this addon is everything the hdhomerun dvr needed. I couldn't be more impressed with the speed and responsiveness of it. I am very new to this plugin as i've only just recently switched off of wmc. I am trying to get edl working. I am using the hdhomerun dvr on a windows box ...
