Re: Linux 5.6 new warning for hdhomerun_record regarding executable stack

Unfortunately it looks like we will have to upgrade and recompile the toolchain to fix the gcc library... will look into that tomorrow. Ouch. Upgrading an entire tool-chain can require a lot of re-validation and certification in the embedded device world (and is why not so long ago I was aware of o...

Re: Change in 20200318 RECORD (Android) or defect?

I'm pretty upset about this one, especially since it wasn't published in the changelog and screws up existing functionality. I would agree that it would be nice to have an extended developer (only?) changelog, but AFAIK the officially documented APIs (on either the github or info.hdhomerun.com site...

Linux 5.6 new warning for hdhomerun_record regarding executable stack

With LInux 5.6 commit 47a2ebb7f5 a new warning from the kernel has been added of the form: process '/usr/bin/hdhomerun_record' started with executable stack The kernel git log documents some cases where code practices can result in this artifact (and, as I recall, uclibc has a configuration option r...

Re: (503) Server Unavailable

Is there a way to check the signal strength via http? If I understand this part of your question, as I recall (I have a stash with some WIP that I never fully integrated into one of my codes, but I believe it was at least partially working at one point) after a successful tune, the http response he...

Re: Unofficial HDHomeRun DVR repository for DEB based systems

A small heads up for users of my repos (no actual action required, just a heads up) For a long time on linux systems /var/run and /run have been aliased, with more recent filesystem definitions stating that /var/run is deprecated in favor of /run. Some distros are now complaining about the use of /v...

Re: (503) Server Unavailable

Look for the "X-HDHomeRun-Error" http header in the 503 response - this will tell you more specifically what the problem is. And as I recall, for after the fact information, the tuner system log has additional details (I don't know the exact texts, but presume it is substantially equivalent to the ...

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: XMLTV guide data

We are testing ... I note that this XMLTV output appears to fall a bit victim to the challenge of channels vs stations(*), and certain applications making assumptions regarding the differences. In particular, at least one well known application (sort of) requires there to be two xml channel definit...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

I would like to get one Prime 6 since having two of the three tuner Primes is costing us $10.00 for the second cable card. Same. Even though it might not be cost efficient to do so. I would rather give the money to SD than Verizon. Certainly the cost depends on provider (and market), but as I under...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

Can you post a link to the Comcast rate cards for us mere mortals? Everyone has to look up their own rate card (because the offers and pricing varies based on market). Go to https://www.xfinity.com/support/rate-card/ and enter your information to see *your* current rate card (and be aware that it c...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

OT... but locals are still mpeg2 There is at least one market that reportedly has started to transcode even the locals to H.264, presumably as part of their various delivery transitions. I know it seems almost laughable that they still distribute 480 content but that allows them to charge extra for ...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

so at that point, it's easier to just focus on the Prime 6, which would likely have been replacing the Prime 3 anyway. You forgot about the (mythical) "Prime 4 transcoder" (which would have been offered in a timeline a number of years ago after the Prime 3, and before the Prime 6) which would have ...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

Asking again and again won't change the answer. Technically, asking "Are we there yet?" again and again will eventually get another answer should one eventually arrive, meaning that asking again and again will result in a positive reinforcement (unless you are going to answer "no" any anyone you ha...
