Re: Why switch from Media Center to SD DVR?

WMC works a lot better if you ask me. The only issue is you need to use a computer and that's the biggest problem. You cannot recoord drm channels with SD DVR.

Re: Comskip with HDhomerun DVR

I am surprised no one has a script that works with linux. I am not interested in mcebuddy since it is windows only. I recently switched to Windows just to use mcebuddy but ended up switching back to debian for stability.

Re: WIndows 10 + WMC + HDHOMERUN Prime

Simple solution is to use windows 8.1 Well, 8.1 Pro and the Media Center add on, but while the Media Center add on license was cheap ($10? and even free during the early days), it was withdrawn almost four years ago, and except for some random whitebox vendors with a license sitting in some corner ...

Re: WIndows 10 + WMC + HDHOMERUN Prime

I really want to used windows 10 and HDhomerun prime. My understanding is that the HDHOMErun DVR does not record copy protected programs (which is most of the channels on timewarner, now Spectrum). Any other solution for windows 10 (or Linux). Does anyone know how close silicondust is to enable cop...

Re: Comskip with HDhomerun DVR

NedS: That will only output a file saying where in the recording the commercials are. It will not remove the commercials from the recordings and the hdhomerun dvr can not read those files to skip over the commercials automatically. The only solution is to use mcebuddy. Plex and even Channels DVR ha...

Comskip with HDhomerun DVR

I have HDhomerun DVR on a Linux server and I am looking for a way to use comskip. Has anyone done this? I use the HDhomerun app for recording and would like to setup comskip to monitor the folder then strip commercials. I can't seem to find a solution.

Re: New UI - SD tickles me

The Ui could do with a makeover. It is so cumbersome to use that I gave up. Now I just the Android Live channels and plex to record.

Re: Channels Apps Are Now Free for DVR Subscribers

Yeah, lack of any kind of Windows support (or a decent web player) is the biggest drawback to me. Even though it has a great UI on Android TV and TvOS, I can't see it being worth $8/mo when I would have to pay for another subscription on top of it for the ability to watch live TV on a desktop. I'd ...

Re: Channels Apps Are Now Free for DVR Subscribers

I don’t see the value in the price. There are many other solutions that cost a lot less and many are free. I record something once in a blue moon so there is no value in paying that much. I’m happy you see the value in paying that much. You don't need a DVR, but if you like the way Channels works f...

Re: Channels Apps Are Now Free for DVR Subscribers

I purchased this app and it looks really nice. Works well but the DVR pricing is ridiculous. I can rent a DVR from the cable company for less so I decided to return it for a refund. This is the kind of app SD needs. The HDhomerun app is just terrible and hasn't changed much in years. I don't unders...

I use use the unofficial kodi app to set recordings and it can do what I need but how do you do it with the official ...

Re: User Guide to HDHomeRun Record Engine

Very helpful Guide! Save me a lot of time trying to play around with the DVR app. A few features that would be great to have: 1. Recording options - New, Rerun etc. (already mentioned but not yet available) 2. Record Series on selected channel - some shows appear on many channels. 3. Playback Resum...

Re: Apple TV app (tvOS)

I didn’t even realize there wasn’t a tvOS app until yesterday when I almost purchased the Apple TV. Now I may purchase the shield instead. I really prefer how Apple products work but there is no telling how long it will take. I was told on irc that they are waiting for the completion of the UI updat...
