Re: Transition from WMC to HDHomeRun Software

I just came to understand what you were saying a little better. There is encryption and there is copy protection. My experiment may have worked because the channels I recorded were encrypted but not copy protected. From the discussion I saw it sounds like the cable companies are moving to copy prote...

Re: Transition from WMC to HDHomeRun Software

Thank you very much for your responses. I didn't think so, but now I'm convinced I made a mistake with my experiment and convinced myself of something that wasn't true. I think, for now I'm going to take a shot at loading up WMC on our new computer (It's not here yet) and see how it goes from there....

Re: Recording DRM

I just found out that you can't record DRM protected programs. I did an experiment a few years ago that convinced me that this was working so I didn't check to make sure it was working now. Nuts. Not sure how I screwed up that experiment. The point of it was to prove HDHomeRun DVR would work for us....

Re: Transition from WMC to HDHomeRun Software

We almost never watch live TV. I thought when I did the experiment a few years ago that I was able to record programs and watch them later. In my memory, which maybe is wrong (but it is hare to understand how I could have made this mistake), I recorded DRM protected programs on my office computer an...

Re: Transition from WMC to HDHomeRun Software

That is very disappointing. I ran HDHomerRun software on my office desktop a few years ago and I thought I was able to watch DRM protected programing. I assumed by now that was completely sorted. Maybe I'm confused. I did it as an experiment to prove that this was going to work on our home entertain...

Transition from WMC to HDHomeRun Software

What is best way to make the transition from a Win 7 desktop computer that uses Windows Media center to a Win 10 desktop that uses HDHomeRun DVR software easy? Will I need to do anything to get my cableCard supplied by Spectrum initialized or will Homerun prime DVR software work with it as it is? Ou...
