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: 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: 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: 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 ...

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: TVJunkieMOD (Record, Request, Playback, Favorites +)

Well just added it to Kodi on here, had to set the zip file to a folder that Kodi could see then told it to add from zip file and it showed up right under the HDHomeRun app. Haven't really played with it much yet, just set the record folder and verified it's at least showing all my non DRM channels....
