That means the first Chinese Android box that supports Netflix in HD with Dolby Digital. If true, will that benefit the ...

Re: Cheap Windows 10 Box

Don't have one of these, but for the price, should make a very good HTPC.

Re: Converting WMC recordings

Do these solutions maintain the embedded closed captions?? I gave up on converting my video files, because closed captions did not work afterwards. Most do not. Closed captions are embedded in the video stream itself. Programs like ccextractor can pull out the CC data and convert it to SRT or ASS/S...

Re: Hey, SD Where are we at with Shield ATV and DRM Support?

SD has shown great skill in designing and getting manufactured quality and reliable tuner devices and is demonstrating skills in software to produce DVR and viewing apps on a range of platforms. It does not cost a lot to get Android TV boxes manufactured in China. Perhaps it is time for SD to figur...

Re: Plex getting Live TV support...

I don't care much about grid, so what does it give me that's better than HDHR at this point? Nothing at all after extensive testing of both the Plex DVR and EMBY ... I am back to the HDRDVR ... it simply performs so much better than others ... the others might have a better gui but performance it i...

Reading your post, I think you may be better served, using Emby vs. Kodi.

Re: Setup Questions . . . . . .

Two years ago, I was running my whole home DVR from a $30 Android STICK, running OpenELEC and Tvheadend server. Using my older HDHomeRun Dual and my Extend, I was able to stream 4 HD channels to 4 different TVs, without any issues. Don't recall if I was using any transcoding on the Extend at the tim...

Re: Best HdHomerun System with DVR

The price of the Xbox One S should drop $50 tomorrow... I can finally start moving some more people to the system but without DRM recording (my area has DRM on all but locals) we still need WMC and usually xbox 360's. However, though slower than I would like, I can see this becoming a great system ...

Re: Using Shield as DVR - External Drive?

Nevermind, I can see it's recording to the external. I found the path and moved the recordings there with success.
Interesting, it did not force you to format that external drive?
