Re: Improved networking

Thanks Ned, that prompted me to go look at the servio - that only has 100mb port too - that seems to be an issue if i think about 4k streams - imagine recording 4 streams and serving 4+ devices with different pre-recorded 4k content in the house. Heck 100 Mbps isn't enough for 4 in 4 out on ATSC1. ...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

Just got mine this afternoon and set it up. Quick and simple. I updated the firmware and I already had the tvOS HDHomeRun app installed and I downloaded the the beta macOS app. But what app am I supposed to use for iOS? As the beta saying it's not taking anymore testers and the iOS HDHomeRun app, i...

Re: disabled channels still show in hdhomerun app?

This enables two features: 1) it increases the live TV/pause buffer (including on clients that don't have enough RAM for their own live pause buffer) 2) enables tuner sharing, which means if two people are watching the same channel, the SERVIO will distribute that and only consume a single tuner Sw...

Re: Improved networking

Realistically, that would only matter if we put more tuners in a unit. We haven't been able to find an example in-the-wild where all four tuners being used at once would max out the 100 meg interface. what if multiple users were accessing the 4 tuners? just asking from an academic perspective - for...

Feature Request: Leave Tuners Connected

One of the things I like about a certain other solution is the way it uses all the tuners and leaves them connected to enable quick switching or quick reconnection when moving between menus (for example going to the DVR menu on HDHR and then back to live TV). If HDHR implemented the same feature it ...

Re: How to use connect duo during internet outage

I am evaluating my HDHR once again now the Quattro4k arrived to see how it might impact my use of CATV / the vendor that shall not be named. I never knew this, caching some period of UI and guide data would seem essential for WAF. Over the last 6 months i have several days without internet, never on...

Re: Unable to record with the new 4k Quatro

I received my new 4k Quatro on Saturday and tried to schedule a program to record and when I checked later it did not record. I then tried to click record on a live broadcast to see if it would record it, but it did not. Is anyone else running into this issue? I already owned the HD Quatro (non 4k)...

i think that answers a separate architecture question i had - does the app automatically choose the servio or the tuner to watch live TV :-)
so does this mean path is user > servio > tuner?

Feature Request: HD Homerun App auto reconnect

Would be great if the apps keep retrying to reconnect when their is a network issue. I was upgrading my switches and APs today. I expected the app to reconnect when the path to the HDR came back. There is no reason i can see not to try reconnecting say every 5 seconds.

disabled channels still show in hdhomerun app?

Not sure if this is a HDHR5-4K unit issue or the app in general, so apologies if wrong. I disabled the non-hd channels, however in the hdhomerun app they still are listed (though with no thumbnail and they do nothing). I was expecting disabled channels to disappear from the app. Troubleshooting step...

Re: Received my HDHomeRun 4K Quatro

I have an antenna indoors, same on used on my HDR3US ATSC1 unit - always had macroblock like issues - so far this tuner seems a much better ATSC1 tuner in my environment.

Re: unofficial Docker Container for Record Engine

Nice work. Given your container doesn't run with the privileged flag it really doesn't matter if it runs 'root' as it doesn't have privileged access. It only has access to the bind mounts (-v) nothing else. Either way no harm running with custom PID/GID inside the container - however note the same P...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

Apple TV, and getting an official HDHomeRun app of some kind (for all of our products, both ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0) is still a priority for us. Be careful with the word priority, some think that means get it done asap. whereas some think it means something we would really like to do. I discovered th...
