Re: Fire TV 4K HDHomeRun app issues

Interestingly, I am watching tonight and I am getting AC3 (e.g. Dolby Digital) even with AC3 Passthrough turned off? Color me confused. At commercial time I can hear and see as the audio switches back and forth between DD and 2.0 audio but everything stays in sync. Also, Nick could you address why t...

Re: Fire TV 4K HDHomeRun app issues

Hi, If you are using audio over HDMI and you turn off AC3 passthrough you should still get 5.1 audio. The HDHomeRun app auto-switches between stereo and 5.1 audio as needed. If you have a recording that reproduces the problem please upload it to something like Dropbox or Google Drive and PM me the ...

Re: Fire TV 4K HDHomeRun app issues

Further troubleshooting. I just turned off AC3 Passthrough in Fire TV settings. I am now not getting constant pausing I think? So this means it will work better but I will not get Dolby Digital 5.1 and have to make do with Matrix like Dolby Pro Logic, etc?

Disappointing. Will this ever get fixed?

Re: Fire TV 4K HDHomeRun app issues

While I was writing this post, I wondered if the HDPrime and Quattro had an interference problem? So I just disconnected the Prime. I watched on the Fire TV. For a while it seemed okay but as predicted when the station (WRC-TV DC) switched to commercial things went haywire where the audio for the pr...

Fire TV 4K HDHomeRun app issues

Hi, I am trying to understand why the HDHomeRun app on current Fire TV 4K sticks is working so poorly. I have several Fire TV 4K sticks connected via Google Mesh with Fios one gig internet. Also one Fire TV stick is hardwired ethernet. Also one Toshiba Amazon Fire TV 4K. I have had for a long time a...

Fire TV "Surface" HDHomeRun Channel Content in Interface

Hi, I have settled on Fire TV as my TV interface portal going forward. One thing that I have noticed recently is how the Fire TV can "surface" the live content from various apps so that it is very easy to browse and sample current content. You can see this very readily with the Pluto TV app which is...

Re: ATSC 3.0 TV is Starting to Roll Out This Year in 40 Markets

I am a long time Fios TV customer with a Gig Internet and Ultimate TV. I pay $250 a month. Much of the TV I pay for I never watch. I watch no Sports but yet pay a Regional Sports Tax of $7 and have to pay for ESPN, etc. All this so I can watch BBC America which is only in the Fios Ultimate Tier. I ...

Re: ATSC 3.0 TV is Starting to Roll Out This Year in 40 Markets

I would love if the execs at Silicondust could post something on how they see things panning out in the next 5 -10 years? With both 5G and ATSC 3.0 it would appear we are on the cusp of a radically new environment for TV/Video delivery? I am a long time Fios TV customer with a Gig Internet and Ultim...
