Re: Recordings take up too much space!

I use VideoRedo to convert the files WMC records to a much smaller edited down file as a H265 mkv file. It looks like the same quality level and saves a lot of space. It's a pay program but it's easy to use and pretty fast with a decent cpu and video card. They keep updating it and releasing better ...

Re: New User Question: Can I use both a Prime and Quattro OTA

I picked up a USB3 dual drive external enclosure. I keep one of my big 4tb drives I found cheap in it and it can copy one drive to another automatically or just have 2 drives of any size in it to use. I also pull problem drives or put new ones in it to copy, repair, or format. Might be a good option...

Re: AC-4 Audio - talkenrain

My 2018? Shield now has ok audio and video on the 3.0 channels in Portland. The Roku Ultra latest release I recently got still doesn't and neither does the Roku built-in to my TCL 65 825 TV. So something by somebody got a update that makes the earlier Shields work recently. So finally one of my med...

Re: Is now a good time to pick up the HDHR5-4K?

Mine just started working sound and video with my older Shield today so glad I made the investment and gamble to pick one up early. I love tech in all forms and like new toys. I can use the record service I also supported on kick starter to record with it to a drive in one of the computers on my net...

Re: 24 Dec 2020

And I got the update and rescaned the channels and it was seeing the 1.0 channels so that's why my Shield had everything. Not what I thought but definitely a improvement to be able to watch and hear the non 4k channels again. they still aren't really broadcasting 4k here yet any way so gives some ti...

Re: 24 Dec 2020

My Shield now gets audio and video on the 3.0 channels here so maybe it automatically updated already but it works now, and it's a 2017 or so version at that. Roku on my TCL TV and the latest Roku Ultra still have no audio but I'll have to scan and update and see if anything else changed.

Re: New User Question: Can I use both a Prime and Quattro OTA

I recently added the 4k tuner to my HD HomeRun set up with win7 and WMC like mentioned because it fully supports the cable pay channels I used to have. Once I got it to scan the Ota stuff it sees both but I still use cable only for now as nobody here is actually broadcasting 4k get but is using HEVC...

Re: No Internet, No App????

I have all my gear hooked to various capacity UPS backup power supplies so things tend to keep running and online for up to a few hours depending on how much power they use. I watch for sales online or on Craigslist and replace batteries on the ones that go flat after about 3 to 5 years. My main box...

Re: 24 Dec 2020

Cool, looking forward to possibly something I own other than win 10 getting both video and audio soon with the 4k tuner. I guess at least being able to choose which stream to use should at least make it usable for the markets like mine that are doing atsc3 streams now.

Re: Nvidia shield crashes on HEVC channels (Detroit area)

Thanks for that. My new 2019 Tab A has AC4 support with Android 10, my 2018? Moto Android 8 G5plus does not. However my tablet only plays audio so something else is missing I guess and it shows HEVC support as well. Lotta things have to be right and playing nice together for everything to work.

Re: AC-4 Audio?

It has the AC4 support but not in the package that they use for the new tuner I guess yet. I bought one too but it was on a good black Friday sale so I'm keeping it for the other updates it got and hoping eventually it gets a update to work. It has been mentioned in threads here before when I asked ...

Re: Nvidia shield crashes on HEVC channels (Detroit area)

My 2017 Shield is doing similar, one of my Android devices plays audio but no video, Android 10 tablet. Phone on Android 8 says some kind of driver error and plays nothing. Hope we get some updates soon for the non or barely working devices that can handle AC4. I'm in the Portland Or area.

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Well, pretty sure I read the disclaimer about audio support but was hoping something of the many media players and streamers I own would support everything. So far the only setup that has audio is Windows 10. I'm not upset as getting in on the ground floor of a new technology and format is going to ...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Well the new Roku 4 ultra does not play audio on the 3.0 streams yet like several have stated unfortunately. It's a nice player though for cheap and it seems to do a nice job playing back Dolby Vision on anything HDR unless you turn the always on setting off. My TV even shows a Dolby Vision symbol ...
