Re: HDHomeRun CONNECT Quatro: Suddenly Erratic Signal and Symbol Quality

The symptom suggests the RF input stage is being overdriven - could be TV or LTE.

Can you please turn on "send diagnostic information" in the HDHomeRun app settings menu then run a channel scan (also in the settings menu). Once complete please post back with the Device ID.

Re: LG WebOS App - Cannot Rewind or Fast Forward

LG doesn't support FF/RW on live TV. FF and RW is supported when playing back recordings.

Re: HDHomeRun CONNECT Quatro: Suddenly Erratic Signal and Symbol Quality

I thought maybe T-Mobile finally started firing-up their 600MHz Band 71 allocations in the area. There is a TMO tower about a quarter of a mile away, as the crow flies. And it's kinda sorta more-or-less off the front of the roof antenna. I'd say maybe 45-50° off-axis? But this problem manifests its...

Re: HDHomeRun still show "(no guide access)"

I’m currently researching alternative software that could work. So far, some require a live internet connection. Others do not recognize the ATSC3.0 channels. None, so far, have been able to access the HDHR internal HDD. I’ll continue my research and testing. I don’t expect to find the ability to u...

Re: HD HomeRun now only opens in 'Recorded', with no way to get to 'Live'

This OUTAGE event only serves to reinforce the need for an off-line guide dump, available on the local HD device to guard against Internet outages. :oops: PLEASE please figure out and design a bulletproof solution to this "off-line guide dump, available on the local HD device" no Internet...

Re: Two tuners, separate antennas

You can do that by using two modern HDHomeRun tuners - you can disable channels differently on each one and the HDHomeRun app will present the super set of channels.

The HDHR-US is older and doesn't maintain channel information.

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

Now that live tv is available again… I have been unable to watch 1080i live or recorded programming (video freezes after one second) unless “video decode quality” is set to low. That is normal/expected. Most Android dongles are power (heat) limited and don't have the ability to run a higher quality...

The HDHomeRun is a stand alone tuner - it doesn't require internet to tune and stream channels.

The HDHomeRun app needs internet services to provide guide data and UI features.

Re: Planned outage 11/26

We have confirmed a service outage due to a firewall rule referencing an old interface name.

Heading back to the datacenter.

Re: Planned outage 11/26

Master database upgrade complete.
Primary API server RAID rebuild complete after replacing an aging SSD.

Two more servers to go. The work on these servers should not be disruptive.

Re: Planned outage 11/26

The AC4 equipment install is done - went smoothly.

The Master DB upgrade hit a complication which we have just now solved. It will take up to an hour for the rest of the process to complete.

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Ok, that's weird. The TV isn't reporting AC4 support in Android but it is reporting support for AC4 over HDMI which I haven't seen before... first, TVs don't normally report HDMI, and second I haven't seen AC4 as something supported by HDMI. The TV identifies as BRAVIA_VH2 - which TV model is this a...
