Re: "Always on top" option for HDHomeRun on Windows 10 ?

I use an app called "Desk Pins". It works great with HDHomeRun and is very useful for many other programs.

Re: Playback goes out of sync on Shield

Yes, this only occurs with the HDHomerun app. Never happens with other apps. Have to restart to get it to last for a while. Would really appreciate this being addressed.

Re: Playback goes out of sync on Shield

If you have a recording where out of sync consistently happens, could you provide it via a dropbox or similar link so we can investigate it here? Thank you. A. Same recordings that go out of sync on shield, work fine on WIndows or other Android It does not stay with a recording, and will play back ...

Playback goes out of sync on Shield

Every so often, when watching a recording, the audio goes way out of sync, on 2017 Shield. Going out of app and back in fixed it for only a minute or two. All other apps work fine. Haven't noticed a problem with live viewing. Only happens on Shield. The only way to get it to stay in sync for a day o...

Seems to have regressed to much larger on Android shield too. Was so nice when you shrunk it down last time.

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

I don't think that's the same problem: 1. The problem he refereed to is from DVB-T which usually is H.264 encoded IIRC. 2. He mentioned VLC works fine with the problem stream which seems to me that it is not a driver issue. But who knows. All I know is that XiaoMi never even bother to test MPEG2 pl...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

I would love to see a fix no matter how klugey. I have three MiBox 3s, and since the update to the operating system, some channels pixellate/don't interlace and others are fine when in use with the HDHR feed. I also have one MiBox S; it had no problems with the system update. I second that! Would r...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

My MiBox 3 is still totally useless. I guess that blacklist thing from Ned is not to be. It's a difficult decision because it is only affecting some MPEG2 content and not others. Forcing software decoding will decrease deinterlacing quality, so there's a tradeoff. Ive been whispering in the boss's ...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

Obviously, their engineers don't have these test MPEG2 video to test with. Otherwise, they won't keep sending out these crippling firmware updates. first happened on MiBox S Android 9 update last year (I reported that). They didn't learn from that and kept up with another for MiBox 3. If you still ...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

Just wanted to post an update. I had some decent responses from Xiaomi tech support. I got past the "Becky in customer service" level of support and was talking to tier 2. We went through a couple of different steps and they also sent me some firmware to load. It didn't fix the problem but this was...
