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 ...

Re: HDHomerun web page: DVR not detected.

My recording engine doesn't show up because I set my boxes to sleep when not busy so they usually aren't online when I'm checking from my media players in the living room setup.
If your boxes are always online 24/7 then something else is going on.

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Well it probably has a better chance of getting a update to add better support than the others since it has AC4 now. Mine is actually arriving today so we'll see soon enough. The highest end new Shield might get it but it won't be 69 bucks. I think I paid 169 for my Shield including the gaming contr...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Well so your saying it won't work? Anyway I'll find out Sunday and it adds a faster cpu and Dolby Vision so not a total waste of time either way.

Re: AC-4 Audio?

We will probably start a thread and/or webpage to help track configurations and platforms that will work with AC-4. Most, if not all, Windows 10 systems should have some kind of path to support, Xbox One should be okay, recent LG smart TVs work, at least some Android TV devices should work (will ne...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

Well AC4 works on windows 10 so sound now works on it at least. Most of the broadcasters are doing whatever trying to dial their broadcasts in. They aren't even doing 4k yet on most of them according to a guy who posted here that they only do 720 or a 1080 for now. They'll eventually get the popular...

Re: ATSC 3.0 Portland: QUATRO 4K

Hi adaptive, a few things: Go to my.hdhomerun.com and choose your device, and upgrade the firmware, as it may have not arrived with the latest firmware (20201030). FireTVs don't seem to currently support MP-4 audio decoding. See Video but not sound . This is affecting many platforms. Make sure you'...

Re: 23 Oct 2020

Roku plays video, no audio, Shield the same but video is a rock solid lock. They also only show 720p or 1080p according to what the programs report. I don't know if that's a error or that's what they actually are playing but it looks like regular HD to me. The Shield on the HD HomeRun ap even sees ...

Re: 23 Oct 2020

It now plays the video and audio for me in Portland on 10 as well, haven't checked my other options yet except win7. The audio still doesn't work in 7 but maybe it hasn't got all the updates being EOL. I'll have to wander out and see how my Roku stuff and my Shield are doing now. It even played a 4k...

Sound issues with 4k here too.

Well, I'm either getting no audio through the Shield and Roku app on my TV or I get choppy and fast audio on my PC. The Microsoft store asked if I wanted to update to the HEVC driver and claimed it installed but still issues with 4k channels here in Portland Ore for me. I just suddenly started picki...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

I haven't been able to tune either of the supposedly active 4k channels in my area of Portland Oregon yet but they do appear to be pretty directional and picky as I've been adjust the flexible ears of the fm antenna that came with one of my stereos and I get different channels and loose others depen...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

As far as I have found out so far if you use the DVR that they give us it will work as it sees both units and sets up the channels accordingly. WMC does not see the Quatro but still records my cable fine with the prime and I have had the HD homerun record working as well on one test record I did wit...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

Well mine didn't pick up pbs 10.1 so I extended the ears on the fm dipole I'm using and it picks it up now. I think the digital uhf signal is really directional so might have to play with the position or get a couple of small directional antennas, or one with a built-in rotator if outdoor so you can...
