Re: some channels missing

For scans and background scans, (not sure how the Prime firmware works, don't have source code) couldn't you have it consult the CabelCard when it scans channels to see if the subscriber is subscribed to the channel and not mark it as unsubscribed As I recall, you have to try to tune/decode the cha...

Re: some channels missing

Don't know if it's related, but thought I'd mention that Comcast is in the process of changing local channels from mpeg2 to AVC/H.264. Comcast has been doing this conversion market by market, channel group by channel group (first the national channels because they are all done in a few places (prim...

Re: Get list of scheduled recordings?

But I strongly subscribe to the theory one should always have enough tuners not to worry about any such potential conflicts. Life is too short to deal with potential conflict resolution (as it is a constant activity), given all the things that can happen between "now" and "then". While it is just a...

Re: Adding File to DVR Recordings

gtb... I believe that doesn't exist Specifically it would have been the HDHRUtil-DVR-fileImport utility (intended to, well, import media files into the DVR), but as it was posted (I think) in the development area, it would have lasted in the forum much longer than the typical 90 days in other topic...

Any progress on releasing this tool @nickk? Thanks.
There is a 3rd party tool which can import and create the the required metadata documented at viewtopic.php?f=125&t=68701 (the HDHRUtil command set).

Re: some channels missing

It looks like both you and the other person have Comcast in the Nashville area/market. We're thinking Comcast has something messed up on their end, but we're still looking into it. I have seen something like this in a completely different market, as the 1001/2 are tuned right after the 9xx music ch...

Re: Latest Linux Version?

I've been running the DVR on my synology NAS for something like 5 years. FWIW, demonrik contributes a synology package to the community which one can chose to use to update the DVR on that NAS. https://forum.silicondust.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=126&t=67044 You could then choose to be notified for ...

Re: Unable to Live View DRM-protected Channels (Windows 10) - steven975

Seems it may be another case of "turn it off and back on again". HDCP compliance is an active test, and is negotiated whenever a monitor changes state (typically a "plug" event). Some monitors, some graphics card, and some kvm switches, perform "interestingly" when such plug events happen and will ...

Re: 2 HDHR-US units - firmware broken both of them

Resetting or malfunctioning or operating differently has historically been linked to power supplies going bad for older devices (not just SD tuners). Newer firmware may utilize power differently exacerbating the issue(s). If you have another adapter in the residence that is being used on another dev...

Re: What happened? WJZ 13 Suddenly Working!

Interesting thoughts. The repack came to mind to me as well but it seems not to have been executed yet. WJZ and WBAL are still on physical channels 13 and 11, respectively. So there seems to be no change yet, but the questions is already whether it will get worse again. If there is work scheduled o...

Re: Atsc 3.0

The libpcap changes have been accepted upstream. Working on Wireshark. Excellent. Thanks. That will help "us" all in the long run (not that *I* hope to need to run wireshark on an ATSC 3.0 stream, but it is nice to be able to). I had short circuited my research by only checking if the wireshark rep...

You might also notice a fork of wireshark on our github :)
I believe the appropriate response may be "You are such a tease!".

I hope you can eventually submit the A/330 dissector upstream (along with the libpcap changes).

Re: (503) Server Unavailable

Is there a way to check the signal strength via http?

Re: Unable to detect Ch14

It would be extremely useful if the HDHomeRun could provider the user a log file of all channels from the scan with detectable signal strength regardless of signal quality. Use the cli scan and redirect the output to wherever you wish. And can you can use the cli to get the data for a specific freq...
