Re: Previous Channel or Flashback for Live TV viewing

There is a filter at the top of the channel list so you can jump back through previous channels.

What is "flashback"?

Re: No recordings for months, but upcoming tasks always has many

The log is weird... I don't see the record engine attempting to sync with the guide server.

Can you please download and install the latest HDHomeRun software:

Re: Prime Coupon

I changed your order back to pending payment - you should now be able to log into the shop site and resume the existing order.

Re: HD App on Fire TV Stick 4K Crashing or Freezing on Channel Change

We figured out the crash today.

In addition, we confirmed that once the codec has wedged itself it can't be reset and used again.

Re: Latest Google TV (Chromecast) update - HDHomeRun not working as expected

then Chromecast rebooted. I assume the app crashed the OS. The way a modern OS is designed an app shouldn't (in theory) be able to crash the OS... if it can that would be a considered a bug in the OS. We have seen two situations where a device can reboot... 1) A kernel driver crashes in a fatal way...

Re: Wireshark ALP protocol decoder

Submitting changes to Wireshark isn't trivial - they don't use github and require the use of additional change tracking tools. I will push to try again.

Re: Issues with HDHOMERUN responding

You are currently at around +25dBmV. Typically installers aim for -5dBmV to 0dBmV at each outlet.

Re: Issues with HDHOMERUN responding

The first thing that jumps out in the log is your signal strength is 142% which is well above maximum spec for cable TV equipment.

What is the cable/splitter/amplifier layout?

Re: 2nd Gen Apple TV 4K - HDHR Audio/Video Keeps Losing Sync

The same recording played right through this morning without error.

I also tried heating the Apple TV with a heat gun in case the CPU was thermally throttling - still plays ok.

Very odd.

With Comcast/Xfinity a CableCARD + subscription is required to receive local channels.
