Using remote with Discover Now needs improvement - 3579mike777

WMC runs circles around SiliconDust DVR. It isn't even close. Not sure why they treat their interface like Netflix, and not a live TV viewer with an easy to view and scroll guide. Changing channels is painfully slow. I'm not a big channel changer, so not too bad for me. People that like to change ch...

Re: Recordings fail to appear -- Servio Bug?

My android box for over a day was not showing any of my recordings. I could however see the recordings from my phone and computer. Then I noticed yesterday all of the recordings are available again on the android box again.

Re: Still works on Samsung TV's?

Just tried this on my 2015 Samsung 4K and it worked! Not a very elegant option, but it played the video beautifully. Might have to give this a try for live events, like football, and get the computer or android box video processor out of the equation. I would much rather have my TV do the only video...

Re: DVR engine wake windows 10 PC?

My android box, 4TB external drive and USB notebook cooler pad uses 15 watts when displaying video. 12 watts when just sitting there idle. So relatively low power use. However using the box as the main video display is terrible compared to WMC. Horrible lag in remote commands. Also the quality of th...

Re: New Interface - Lag

20190723 is when all the lag/guide issues started, mainly with an android box as the DVR player, but also with Windows 10. This would drive people that change channels a lot absolutely nuts. Even if you want to switch between two channels, it is painfully slow.

Re: PLEASE go back to old UI until this is ready

My android 8.1 box improved in responsiveness when I enable "early access to new features."

Re: PLEASE go back to old UI until this is ready

I agree. The responsiveness of the UI is incredibly slow on my Android box. It takes three or four seconds to respond to a remote command. The only positive is you added a setup menu.

Re: Win10 live view not playing full screen, task bar shows

Your method didn't work, just restored or maximized. What worked was pressing the F11 key.

Win10 live view not playing full screen, task bar shows

When I maximize the HD Homerun program in Windows 10, it shows the status bar on the top and the Windows task bar on the bottom of the screen. Not true full screen.

Re: DVR ON PC, PLAYBACK ON SHIELD

The reason I don't like having my Windows10 computer be my DVR drive is that the computer can never go to sleep. Depending on your computer, this can be a real energy hog. Your Shield with a portable drive would probably be more energy efficient if it is on all the time. That is why I chose an Andro...

Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

Comcast Xfinity in Seattle with Prime. No sound on any channel that plays. Only two or three local channels will play a picture, but without sound. All other channels won't play. My Samsung 4K TV still works great, but it is four years old so the audio support is not there. This is beginning to both...
