Re: A few question on DRM ?

Getting OT, but I tried to buy getchannels but it didn't work. Like I literally was unable to purchase. I reached out and never heard back, so I gave up.

Re: A few question on DRM ?

The Shield TV also deinterlaces MPEG2 video correctly. This is noticeable if you have Fios as you mentioned. It can also serve as a sort of storage server over samba. As someone else mentioned it can also run Plex SERVER. It can also run Emby server. The only think I am missing from it is Dolby Visi...

Re: DVR subscription live TV, multi-streams not working as advertised

Last time I tested, live viewing of the same channel in multiple places only used a single tuner. But this was several app versions and several firmwares ago. there must be something off with your config.

Yes but then you are degrading the surround sound.

Re: App releases this week

Had stuttery / "slow-mo" playback after update (not on beta versions anymore - went from the last stable...I think august... to this version). I fixed it by uninstalling and reinstalling (vs. upgrading). Note that if you aren't careful you will lose your recordings. Easiest workaround is to move or ...

Re: Will planned UI improvements address workflows? Such as picking a specific airing to watch?

You don't have to go back to Live TV. After step 2, just Double click on the game you want. I've not done this on my Android box, but I assume there is a way.
Just tried this on Win10 and it doesn't work. A single click asks if I want to record, but never offers to tune to the given channel.

Will planned UI improvements address workflows? Such as picking a specific airing to watch?

I know there are planned UI improvements. Are they also UX improvements, specifically improvements to workflow? For example, If I want to watch a particular college basketball game on a Saturday, it's SUPER cumbersome to do so if I don't already know which channel it is on. Currently I have to: 1) S...

Re: Major stuttering on Nvidia Shield after update

It would have been really good to know that uninstalling the app would delete all my recordings on the device. This is the kind of thing that drives people mad. Try putting your HDD on a PC and running Recuva. https://filehippo.com/download_recuva I'm letting mine run overnight. Looks like it's gra...

Re: Major stuttering on Nvidia Shield after update

on the devices with stuttering problems, you were updated to the beta app. if you do not want to have beta apps pushed to you, you should uncheck it in the menu when you pause/play 13 times in the app on each device. I wouldn't do this until after they push the fix tho. Edit: turns out I AM in the ...

Re: Some of us are actually happy

Just chiming in. I'm happy as well. Occasional quirks happen with recordings but that might have to do with fiddling with networking in the house. Not to mention that hey guess what sometimes cableco equip has quirks and screws up too. I have plenty of friends and relatives who lose ALL of their rec...
