HBO is rumored to be free this weekend. I rescanned channels and still don't see it.
If you have Comcast as your provider the free HBO is available only through their OnDemand system, it's not available on the normal linear channels. This is the way Comcast has done this for several years now.

Re: DRM Content Protection Shield Issue

Maybe the use of a Hotfix? I know that several apps(Disney+) will not work when an advanced/test firmware is used instead of the regular release on the Nvidia Shield.

Re: Win7 WMC and DVR service

I have a Win 7 machine that's serving both a Win7 running WinMediaCtr and other devices running Channels software. I also use the HDHomeRun Win10 app on occasion as well. Both systems coexist just fine though you still only have access to 3 tuners total(single Prime CableCARD in my case) across all ...

Yeah, I had forgotten that I'm using a DisplayPort connection, the funny thing is it's actually worked in the past and even just the other day.

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

And this is a cable tuner we're talking about isn't it? So the ATSC specs don't mean much here. Yes, the Prime is not ATSC. However, I imagine many locals are the same feeds being broadcast ATSC, so I used that value for reference. (Also, I couldn't find any info about maximum bitrates for NA cable...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

It won't be a problem for Comcast users as all of their channels save for the locals are 4Mb/s or less. The locals, in most areas, are still up to about 16-18Mb/s though it's a rare channel that's that high anymore as the bandwidth is split off to sub-channels. And this is a cable tuner we're talkin...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

There's not much you can do as at the present time, SiliconDust doesn't even offer a CableCARD tuner for sale.

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

I don't think CableCARDs will ever be supported on these networks and **** would have to come out with a new box that handles IPTV delivery. What caught my eye was that you need to rent from Comcast every piece of equipment you'd need to utilize the service. It states Roku would work I am sure othe...

Re: how soon is soon?

Not soon enough … time is ticking … for us Prime users .. like I said before DRM Recording or Cable companies stop providing cable cards what will come first … sooner or later we will find out. Comcast has non-CableCARD areas already. https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/all-ip-xfinity-fiber-on...
