Re: Win7 WMC - Added RAM, Broke DRM

You can do a DRM reset without redoing the TV setup. Steps 1-4 and 12-18 at... Thanks Jason. That mostly worked. :) I followed those instructions but when I got to the part where I go to settings> TV> TV Signal there was no option to update PlayReady. I tried playing a few channels but they all fai...

Re: Help with setting up new system

If you are running the Plex server software on the Mac Mini you should attach your HDD to it. Plex won't be able to write to the storage of a Scribe or a HDD attached to a Flex.
There is no benefit in using a SSD. Regular hard drives are fast enough for DVR duty, and will last a lot longer too.

Win7 WMC - Added RAM, Broke DRM

The other day I installed a second stick of RAM in my old Win7-64 HTPC. Everything seemed to be working fine. Last night I tried to play a DRM recording for the first time since installing the memory and I got an error message. I tried playing a DRM protected channel live and got the exact same erro...

It's better now. I guess its as good as it's going to get without hardware acceleration. Thanks.

Re: Bad studder in playback - Mi Box

Can you please make a short recording or 60s capture of this channel. Uploading to google drive now. I'll PM a link when it's done. PM sent, but I just tried playing USA live again and it's working now. I couldn't test-play the recording before since clicking on tiles in Recorded didn't do anything...

Re: Bad studder in playback - Mi Box

From the changelog: ...fails on a small number of channels where the video is partially corrupt and with frames out of order. FWIW this problem affects nearly all of the channels on Fios. The latest update did fix playback on some of the channels, but at least one channel (USA) still doesn't play co...

I complained about background scans several times. I get my lineup the way I want it then a random background scan comes along and marks one of my most used QAM channels as "Unknown". It drives me crazy.

Re: Fios 4k channels

I noticed the Fios 4K channels aren't showing the HEVC label on the device channel lineup page unless there happens to be a 4K program on during the channel scan. Will this cause any problems?

The update didn't work on my MiBox3 either. I only have a handful of AVC channels and all of them play perfectly while MPEG2 is absolute garbage.

OK, I can just use the HDHomeRun app on my phone when I need to do that. It doesn't come up often enough to ask you to fight for it.
