Re: NVIDIA Shield NOW has audio skipping after latest firmware. Wasnt Before

I have a Shield here and I am watching TV without issue.

Is this live TV only or both live TV and recorded playback?

Are you using AC3 passthrough?

Focusing on the transport controls first... And those for the users of non-multimedia keyboards (as well as users of AdvancedMCEMapperTool or even users of fake WMC remotes that send standard keyboard sequences)? Go back to the previous screen or backspace a single character in Search = BACKSPACE [c...

Re: Audio / Video keeps losing synch

I just got off the phone with amazon. They will be contacting HDHOMERUN. It may be an issue for their servers to update the app services with you guy's or something else. But hopefully between the 2 of you this will get resolved. Amazon is by far the slowest of the major stores to approve app updat...

Re: HDHR-US pixelating (also wondering if newer/beta FW available)

We have discussed with Nvidia previously - the situation can't be detected and the only workaround is to software decode.

On the flip side, Nvidia has fantastic hardware deinterlacing support so we don't want to force software decode unless we have to.

We are discussing internally.

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC - gab

Hi gab, I split your posts off to a new thread. We have keyboard support and remote control support. There are a few remote control buttons we can't catch - a few are caught by the operating system (not available to apps) and a few others are not available to UWP apps like the HDHomeRun app. We supp...

Re: Move from Tablo?

Hi,

By far the easiest would be to set up recording rules and hope they record quickly.

We have a command line tool for editing the metadata but that requires a Linux machine (or Linux subsystem on Win10).

Re: getting 1/3 of the channels after latest firmware upgrade - nashman69g

I split the topic. We are not tracking any issues with the latest firmware upgrade but will help figure out what is going on.

Can you please enable "send diagnostic information" on the HDHomeRun device webpage (System Menu), run a channel scan, then post back with the device ID.

Re: ios 14.7 Not able to find DVR

Hi,

Quick thing first - try upgrading the record engine to the latest release. If the primary discovery mechanism is blocked the HDHomeRun app for iOS will use a secondary discovery mechanism which requires a newer record engine to work.

We will retest 14.7.1 here tomorrow.

Re: TiVo feature parity or bust.

Is there a plan to provide feature parity with TiVo for recordings/captions at least? I am not talking about grid program guide ;) I haven't used a TiVo as my DVR since the old Series 1 analog input TiVo. That was 20+ years ago - no idea what features they have these days (guessing TiVo still makes...
