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...

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: 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: Unofficial HDHomeRun DVR repository for RPM based systems

Note: There was a minor edit of the initial URLs for the repo locations. This is recommended for certain future AWS changes. There is no need to change existing setups.

Re: NEW - support running multiple record engines as a pool

Folder 'A' is configred to be a shared folder Not sure how you are sharing, but neither NFS nor SMB reliably work due to their lack of complete filesystem emulation. While one can sort of get things to work some of the time, the recommendation is not to share for it will fail in weird ways eventual...

Re: NEW - support running multiple record engines as a pool

To limit the number of concurrent recordings set RecordStreamsMax in the conf file (registry on Windows). Once this limit is reached another record engine will take over additional concurrent recordings. The default/max is 16. I have not tried this (but I was thinking of edge cases), but if you hav...

I have not (re)verified the process, but I think you missed the part about putting the file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ but in any case, all is well that ends, so if you have a working install, great.

Re: RTP vs. HTTP

My MythTV box talks to the HDHR via RTP. MythTV can (using the contributed external recorder) use HTTP(*). One can argue efficiency(**), but the reality is that in almost all consumer environments(***) is that packets will get dropped using UDP, which will result in artifacts (how many packets will...
