Re: Flashback function available?

We have an idea for remotes with number-pads to do this using "0", as it shouldn't conflict with changing channels as no channel actually starts with zero. That is not entirely correct (although it might be for the less advanced). First, leading zeros have often been supported in many devices. And ...

Re: HDHomeRun DVR - DRM Recording & Playback

Certainly they had hoped to be able to offer DRM recording before now. Long before now. Such is software development with hard requirements (with multiple digits of dollar penalties if you get it wrong). Meanwhile you can hedge your bets by installing EPG123 on WMC The OP should be aware that unles...

Re: Music Choice / Radio only Channels

Is there anything that I need to do, to get these to show up in the channel scan ? If I understand the issue correctly, this is on the "Channel Lineup" page of the tuner? And, as I recall, this issue has been identified previously (and SD has changed things over the years). As I understand it, ther...

Re: Issue with Prime

We're on Frontier FIOS. Any help to diagnose this issue would be very welcomed. Thank you! Usually (but not always) FiOS signal levels are quite good, until they are crap (which typically indicates an ONT issue, but that is an all or nothing change). I am going to presume the two HDHRs are next to ...

Re: Xfinity CableCARD DRM flag

is there any point in asking Xfinity to turn off the copy once flag? It is (usual) Comcast corporate policy that most channels (other than the premiums), and certainly including the regular OTA be marked copy-freely. You should ask Comcast to change the settings. However, the local office, and like...

Re: Internal Power Supply

However i also agree with the op's reasoning that for many the new devices are too light weight and move One can always epoxy the tuner to a large piece of granite (sure, it would violate the warrantee, but if the piece of granite is large enough you would never be sending it in for repair anyway)....

Re: Xfinity 4 digit channels

CableCARDs can handle channel numbers in the multiple digits (a channel number 3000 is not, itself, going to be an issue). And CableCARD firmware can (and is) updated as needed while in operation, so there is no such thing as a "latest CableCARD" (you almost certainly already have it). Now on to res...

Re: XMLTV guide data

It should be simpler than that. You invoke the discover API to get the DeviceAuths, Not exactly, as you have to allow one to have a mix of tuner devices (say, OTA *and* cable), and different applications (or same application with selected tuner access) that may want one or the other (or all), and a...

Re: Upgrading to Windows 10 + replace cable boxes

Would you tell me if I was wrong in imagining there is some hope that CableCARD support is just going to completely die off in the industry and you'll be able to ignore the DRM recording community? There are some who will argue that linear cable is dying, and the only question left is what date to ...

Re: Comcast/Xfinity cablecard channel guide in Indianapolis

Now live in Indy, using the same cablecard I brought from Seattle CableCARDs (in the general case) can only be used in the same franchise location from which they are issued, and must be associated with your current account. You must get a new CableCARD from your local franchise, and re-validate it...

Perfect. I can do that.
