Re: Synopsis not syncing properly

Fair enough. I opened this thread 10 days ago, so perhaps my comment was uncalled for. The 'Now' section doesn't offer a synopsis without selecting a title, and I got frustrated. Hm. That's an interesting point. I wonder if there's a way we could put the synopsis for the current episode on the top ...

Re: Seriously?

Having to get out of discover and the show/game listing, then open slice and find the $&*U*@ channel in slice after you were just looking at it in Discover is a very backward, too many step process. No arguments here. To fix this, we'll really need an updated design for that page. Believe it or not...

Re: Seriously?

I ran into the same issue as the op a couple of weeks ago (yep football). While it is not a huge deal, the user experience is terrible. Moreover, 'this is how it has worked, it is not a new development' falls way short from a customer service perspective... K To be clear, I'm not saying it's a good...

Re: Current program grid leaves a question on duration...

The current program grid is useful and all but it doesn't tell how far into the program you currently are among other items. When it comes to sports events like football the only option is to open the icon and leave the discover menu. Maybe add starting time or % complete to the icon? Or a popup su...

Re: While Slice Guide Pulled Out for Info on Current...

The slice guide is still behaving VERY erratically when navigating up and/or down, with the slice pulled out to view information. Beside the annoying "popping in and out" as you channel surf, sometimes (randomly) multiple time slots will pull out. Instead of staying on current item. And... when it ...

Re: Issue with 'Exit' / esc is pressed with bad timing causing live TV to stop and losing the buffer?

Thanks. When I posted that, I was reporting the issue and was partially venting after doing the 'stupid, impatient person with a remote in his hand' version of this issue - football game that I wasn't recording when I rewound to watch a play over and impatiently pressed exit to remove the slice so t...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

@Bobstr Thank you for your encouragement! Our Logitech Harmony is also a 650 (great remote!), and I will look into remapping further buttons as you did... but I think that it would make more sense for the HDHR DVR app developers to properly handle WMC/MCE commands in the first place so that users o...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Gab - A year or tow ago, we did the transition similar to what you're going through. Yes, there are many differences between how WMC and HDHR DVR work. It's the nature of the business that things change over time, and that change is particularly jarring when a beloved product (WMC) dies and has to b...

Issue with 'Exit' / esc is pressed with bad timing causing live TV to stop and losing the buffer?

Ok, I've done this too many times and am asking for some programmatic help in keeping this from happening. Scenario: watching live TV with anywhere from a few seconds to any number of minutes buffered and the slice guide is brought up for *any* reason that would allow it to automatically go away aft...

Re: Quick question on 'stop playing video' keyboard command

Just to be clear, we don't actually have a stop function on live tv. We have pause, which can be mapped to the space bar, or back, which can be mapped to the esc key. ok. The MCE 'stop' function works somehow, probably because internally it was mapped long ago to the esc key function, in the same m...

Quick question on 'stop playing video' keyboard command

I've checked the docs and can't find the HDHomeRun command for 'stop' playing live video. I've been using the MCE 'stop' keyboard command when I need it, and it now brings up the old dialogue box that I reported earlier (when it started showing up when I used MCE's pause/play commands via my remote)...

I've never had any serious issues with playback of recordings, but last night was unbelievable. Windows 10 PC, Early access enabled, uploading of logs enabled. Record engine running on two windows server 2016 systems. Same configuration (other than windows updates and SD updates) as I've been runnin...

Re: Conflicting Statements... Which is it?

One has to question whether these products are even in development. It's easy and cheap to overhang the market by announcing products you have no intention of of developing. I have two Prime, a Quad and a Duel. They work well with Plex. But not being able to give the truthful status on products ann...

FF/Play/Rew Volume window covering up new Time/Show Name when pressing pause/play

I finally figured out what is causing a problem I've seen since the new 'modern' bits went into place. The offending window is the old window that shows the Volume levels, the buttons for FF/Play (or Pause)/Rew and the HD logo. On a single screen system, it appears near the top left of the screen, d...
