Re: AMD Ryzen CPU release March 2nd

I have an i7 4770k with Z87 mobo which is showing age with some of my newer software. It is the only Intel I've ever had and have never been impressed with performance. Mainly into high end video editing / transcoding. Will try to make this one last a bit longer and perhaps consider the Ryzen next y...

Generic Box testing with HDHomeRun

My needs are simple - just watch TV and record a few channels. It is normally connected to 5yr Samsung smart TV (HDHomeRun Samsung app works on it) with Samsung 2.1 sound bar. But decided to see just how well the HDHomeRun app runs on this generic Enybox X2 (S912 CPU). With the latest update, I got ...

Re: Android Gray App - No Sound

When I purchased the Enybox brand, I knew that it was not Android TV OS, but I still had expectation that the HDHomeRun android client should work. I now understand the issues that Silicon Dust faces with generic boxes, but I think it just emphasizes the need for the 'Compatibility Platform' page to...

Re: Generic Boxes

Purchasing a generic Android STB that is running the tablet version of Android is hit or miss. We have a range of these types of boxes that we use for QA, each with different quirks. We work hard to support as wide a range of devices as possible, however the app needs good hardware AV/codec support...

Generic Boxes

Unread postby mikeb » Tue Feb 21, 2017 8:54 pm We do not recommend purchasing generic Android set top boxes. If these boxes will not be supported, then Silicon Dust should have posted this information a year ago and this info should still be posted on the 'Compatibility Platform' page. The earlier ...

Re: Not understating the guide

I don't understand how expanding the slices out 4-5 hours and then perusing through the channels doesn't essentially accomplish the same thing? It might but also take about 10x longer. I joined kickstarter because I was under the impression that HdHomeRun DVR would replace WMC, but it obviously nev...

Re: Not understating the guide

Every consumer I know like the "grid guide" and I know a lot of consumers of TV. That is why they are blowing $100/month on cable boxes for their house. I would have to say that is because it is the only thing they ever had and for the most part they use it poorly. At CES in 2015 the cnet folks spe...

Re: Android Gray App - No Sound

There are many less expensive Android 6 boxes in the U.S. market. If SD is going to have an Android app, it should work on any box that meets minimum requirements. At the moment, it doesn't.

Re: Not understating the guide

Unfortunately, HDHomeRun DVR app seems to be aimed more at the younger 'cord cutters' and they like this type of UI. It was Silicon Dust's choice to keep costs down by not paying the fees to have the grid guide which is patented. As a Baby Boomer, I would much rather have a grid guide too.

Re: Anyway to change the default start and stop time?

Already available when you set a task. Far right side - padding. There is a drop-down list of preset times plus you can type in a custom time.

Re: Android 2/2 update - no sound

Try setting your android box to stereo output instead of multichannel. Not sure if this is the issue but I had the same problem when my Nexus player was updated to Android M. Switched to stereo and it was good. There is no 'stereo' only setting. PCM - SPDIF passthrough - HDMI Passthrough I still us...

Re: Android 2/2 update - no sound

I installed Kodi just to test the audio. Audio works fine with Kodi. No audio with HDhomeRun android app.
