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...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Can you please turn on "send diagnostic information" in the HDHomeRun app settings menu on the A90J, restart the app, then post back with the device ID of your HDHomeRun

Re: AC-4 Audio?

We are not seeing AC4 as a supported codec in Android on Sony TVs even though it must have the codec for ATSC 3.0 TV content.

As a comparison the Sony XQ-AS62 smartphone reports AC4 codec support in Android.

Re: AC-4 Audio?

We have a number of improvements that will be released in beta late next week. Note that there is no concept of AC4 passthrough - anything that does AC4 will have to convert it to something useful before delivering it over HDMI or a digital audio path. Sony outputting DD+ makes sense. App running on...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

A little update. TV received an update which I think changed things a bit. For review, my issue on Android TV is 2.0 audio coming through embedded in a 5.1 AC3 container with other channels silent which is really bad when you have a surround system. I have a 2021 Sony X90J which has built in ATSC 3...

Re: hdhr3-us dual won’t scan channels in setup app

Thanks for turning on "send diagnostic information". It looks like there is a hardware fault with the unit. It is actually running the scan but it completes very quickly due to it reporting a hardware fault. If you can't get your money back please drop a quick email to support@silicondust....
