Re: Win7 users can still get upgrade to Win10

Still would like to see a grid guide. And a last channel option would be nice.

Win7 users can still get upgrade to Win10

You can google this for details, but the Windows 10 free upgrade to Win7 still works. Basically download the Win10 install files and start the install from within Win7. It will automatically upgrade your Windows 7 copy. After the fact you can later choose to do a clean install. The copy of Windows 1...

Re: Android TV Live Channels DVR

Keep in mind that virtually all cable companies hate cable cards. They only keep offering and supporting them because of laws.

Re: Windows 7 Viewer no video and no sound

Why don't you use Windows Media Center. It was included with almost every version of Windows 7.

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: 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...
