Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

This thread seems unusually quiet and I wonder why that is; since it was recently reported that Roku is the top streaming media player in America. It would be nice to hear about other user experiences pertaining to the new DVR Playback feature. Perhaps someone should mention this thread over on the ...

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

Zencasa:

Assuming you have a Roku account, just log in on the Roku web site : https://channelstore.roku.com/search/hdhomerun .

Then click on Install - the lastest app will be downloaded to all your account related Roku players.

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

Hi Signcarver:

Wifi is not a factor here, I'm getting 90Mbps on my Roku Ultra hard wired speed test.

Although, I believe the Roku players are limited to a maximum bitrate of 12Mbps.

[According to the Roku Player secret menu screen: Press Home five times, RW three times, FF twice.]

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

jasonl: I've been experimenting with my SilconDust Extend tuner (set to Heavy Transcoding) and found that full recordings do indeed play fine on ALL of my Roku players. [As a recap, recordings done with my Connect tuner(s) are pixelated and unwatchable.] I was trying to analyze what the differences ...

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

nateb: You have to look at what clues we have: 1) If the Roku Audio settings are not set to: Dolby Digital and (Auto(Dolby Digital)) - there is no recorded video playback what so ever. What? Why? 2) Live TV is excellent, for the most part re: ticket #120514. 3) I'm in Toronto, and the average Stream...

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

All: Can you believe this, my Roku 4, Roku Premier+ and Roku Ultra players all show heavy pixelated video when playing back recorded videos on my Synology DS116 NAS. So, I did what any desperate hobbyist would do - I dusted off my Roku 3's from storage and guess what...perfect video and audio. I had...

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

jasonl: So what you are basically saying is, that SiliconDust will spend the next six months trying to develop a presentation layer solution - and knowing full well that you have no control over the hardware or software to affect real change and improvements; only to end up with a mediocre solution....

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

OK - Thanks NedS. What I will try is to install the linux Beta of the HDHomeRun server on more robust hardware; and see if I can achieve a better playback experience, using one of my Roku players. It's odd that all my other non-Roku client devices provide excellent video quality (without video pixel...

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

jillybean: This must be a limitation of the Roku player. I am also using a NAS set up (Synology) with the 20190815-Beta1 software and was able to playback the 6 PM news while it was being recorded; albeit using a MI Box Android TV player. In my case, using various Roku players I get heavy video pixe...

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

After reading the last post from Jerry2915: I selected Dolby Digital mode and (Auto(Dolby Digital)) format on both the Roku-4 and Roku Ultra and sure enough they both playback now; albeit heavy video pixelation. I don't get any video pixelation on any of my other playback devices; Win10, XBox and in...

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

Nateb:

If I understand your question correctly, these recording are full hour long TV Shows; whereby I have set up to record particular TV Series to watch at a later time. The HDHomeRun service has correcly recorded them and stored them under the “hdhomerun_record” folder.

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

Nateb: My main TV solution uses Emby, in concert with a Connect Quatro. However, now that you have playback on the Roku, I fired up the HDHomeRun Service on my Synology DS116 (Marvell Armada 385 88F6820 Processor) and loaded the Beta Linux (20190915) software (manual install). Both servers share the...

Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

This is an odd problem...with this new Roku viewer, I can view all channels that are selected on my Quatro, except for one - Channel 9.1 CFTO; here in Toronto. When I tune to that channel, the buffer shows that it increments and then (after a second) the application jumps out to the main screen. Not...

This is great! Thanks for continuing the development of this project AND for adding the Synology NAS package.
