Re: When will DRM recording be available???

To summarize... I'm a big fan of SiliconDust. But, if you don't produce a DVR solution that can record DRM programs from Comcast (VERY SOON), I will dump you and buy a T I V O system that costs a LOT more money... just so I can have a system that works well. I prefer to have a PC-based system with S...

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

By the end of 2019. There are 161 days left until the end of 2019. Are you CERTAIN??? If you are not ready before the middle of 2020, I will abandon SiliconDust and I will buy a T I V O. If you make it work by the end of 2019, I will be your customer for life. I can only tell you what I have been t...

Are you committing to the FACT that DRM recording capability WILL DEFINITELY BE INCLUDED in the Silicondust DVR system by December 31, 2019???

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

WHEN WILL SILICONDUST DVR SUPPORT DRM RECORDINGS???!!!! ^^^^THIS^^^^ is the ONLY thing that matters regarding the Silicondust DVR. Until your DVR can do this, nothing else matters for me and many other people who have copy-protected channels. When are you going to fix this??? If you cannot fix this...

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

It's been like 4 years since I personally had a WMC setup with H.264 cable channels, but my recollection is that WMC always worked fine with DRM H.264 as long as you were using a PC with a real GPU. Intel Graphics only ever worked for them in Windows 8.0, not 7 or 8.1, and of course 8.0 was EOL lon...

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

I have no problem with DRM protected H264 from my provider with WMC with the PC that recorded it, or xbox 360/ceton echo extenders connected to that pc. Very interesting. I have three H.264 recordings (non-DRM) that play fine on my PC, and all of my XBOX-360 extenders. None of my DRM (copy-protecte...

Re: DRM recording

No official word. With that said, over the summer our main office has relocated to Phoenix, AZ, where almost all cable TV is DRM protected. It's possible this may speed up work on finishing it. :) Hey Nate! With that said, I won't be buying any more of your products until you have DRM recording act...

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

I know all about the driver issue. The issue was that certain video drivers couldn't handle H.264 at all... even on non-DRM content. As it turned out, nobody could play DRM H.264 in Media Center, no matter what drivers they were using. Does anyone have any info about when HDHR DVR will record DRM c...

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

SD has mentioned in the past, that DRM recording will be release at the time of the Prime 6. So with that said, I would say before January 1 2020 If this is true, then PLEASE BRING OUT THE PRIME-6 ASAP!!! Even if I need to throw away my old 3-tuner primes and buy a new 6-tuner prime... sign me up! ...

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

I have not received one iota of guide data from Silicondust. I am still using Windows 7 Media Center, so my guide data (flawed as it is) comes completely free-of-charge from Microsoft. Jan 2020 is end of life for Windows 7 and I wouldn't be surprised if WMC guide data ends too. That data is not FRE...

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

Basically, SD's hands are tied, legally, by the cable industry. The cable cabal is loath to certify any more cablecard devices that aren't cable operators themselves. The only reason they approved SD's original Prime devices was merely to prove to the government that legally, they weren't really a ...

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

OP, I am a kickstarter backer too. How many years have you received free DVR guide service from SD? From my perspective, well worth the kickstarter. I have not received one iota of guide data from Silicondust. I am still using Windows 7 Media Center, so my guide data (flawed as it is) comes complet...

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

One thing I learned from SiliconDust is you don't talk about DRM, competing products or how you really feel about their products. I tried to offer my own opinions about their DVR and it was removed due to Forum Rules. I'm guilty. see above. Let me see if I can say this: It has been said that DRM ca...
