Re: What's the difference between the Amazon issued HDHomeRun app and the Google Play version

I consider this a sign we pretty highly prioritize Amazon users. We could have easily released the software on both channels a the same time, but we elected to only release it on the platform that we had to, because DRM forced our hands. So you disagree the statement from jasonl that the fix applie...

It doesn't look to me like I misunderstood the question.
Well, if you understood this was a clear message to Fire customers, yes.

Re: What's the difference between the Amazon issued HDHomeRun app and the Google Play version

The fix for video stalling is relevant to all previous releases. .... the decision was made to skip testing and release for non-DRM platforms (i.e. Amazon) Thanks, that verifies that you de-prioritize Amazon platform releases. I hope users of that platform take that into consideration for their fut...

Re: What's the difference between the Amazon issued HDHomeRun app and the Google Play version

The Android app was submitted to Google so that the DRM update is available to those who need it. We're still working on fixing a few final bugs to get the app where we want it, so it has not yet been submitted to Amazon. No need to push out DRM updates for a platform that doesn't do DRM. So you ar...

Re: Prime 6 ETA

Before anyone asks, no update on when that will be. I would really like for SD to create a FAQ (Prime6 Status?) so that we could point people towards and recommend that they subscribe to the topic so they would get email updates without asking the same questions every few days: Are we there yet.

Re: HDHR Prime-cc for europe/DVB-C?

Anybody has any experience? EU (mostly) uses a CA system utilizing DVB-CI(+) via CAM, which is not the same as the US mechanisms. I seem to recall that a previous question from an EU customer resulted in a response of the form that I interpreted as saying that there was no DVB-CI(+) offering that w...

Re: Low streaming rate

Looked up the previous ref: viewtopic.php?f=113&t=70697&p=338413&hi ... ss#p338413 but generally wait for some direction after turning on diagnostics and tuning the channels as there are multiple potential causes that the logs might point towards.

Re: Low streaming rate

There have been a number of issues in the UK with people needing a low pass filter As I recall, usually high pass (not low) to get rid of certain issues with (usually close by) HF transmitters and antenna wires (the antenna wire is a nice vertical element). However, there are all sorts of other pot...

Re: deinterlacing solution

and what do you recommend me to do at this point? If proper (MCDI) de-interlacing is important to you you have to chose a platform that can de-interlacing in hardware (the shield, I believe the xbox, most windows GPUs). Alternatively, learn to tolerate lessor de-interlacing quality (if you muddy th...

Re: What's the difference between the Amazon issued HDHomeRun app and the Google Play version

Which version is better to use on the 4K Fire Stick? Side load the regular Android app (ver 20190206) or use the Amazon supplied app (ver 20180803)? Newer is always better, right? In theory SD submits the app to both the Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store about the same time. For reasons th...

Re: Upgrading/formatting the hard drive on SCRIBE or SERVIO

Won't this post be cleaned up/deleted by the time you can actually buy these? The FAQs do not expire (or if they do, the timeline is likely in decades).

There is already a 3rd party solution to provide that. Go look in the development support topic area.

Re: DVR Feature Request - Recording Folder Structure

Coming from an XBMC background, this definitely makes sense to me. I'll be sure to list it in feature requests. I would argue this is absolutely the wrong approach regarding engineering resources. There is already a way to request the recorded metadata and serve the content which is documented (the...
