Re: Any recourse? Back to stone age. Everything DRM now

Congratulations... that's a great pay-off for some fantastic persistence but really is a shame how difficult it was to resolve. You might suggest in reply that they take this opportunity to train their support staff so that any such problem in the future doesn't take so long to get the attention it ...

Re: Video Broken Feb 6

Just another data point... my Shield is working fine, DRM channels included. I'm using the Feb 6th version of HDHomeRun on the Shield running 7.2.2.

Re: NVidia Shield Unable to play protected content

If you're connected via WiFi I believe you have to enable location sharing for the app. Wired connection doesn't require this, but if you first connect with WiFi and then switch to wired, a reboot is necessary for the app to drop the requirement.

Re: MiBox DRM Assistance

make sure location services are on. (you may also need to give such permission to the app). I found I had to reboot after enabling permissions within for app too. I suspect it was because the app wasn't truly closed when I changed the settings and thus it didn't reinitialize fully, but whatever the...

Re: Jetstream 4K Ultra

Yea CEC is buggy I have noticed some things work others don't. I'm really surprised how well CEC *does* work actually. Using the TV remote exclusively to turn on both the TV and Jetstream and it starts right up in the app tuned to the last station it was viewing... gives the appearance of the TV us...

Re: Amazon Recast no threat to HDHomerun

The big thing that held me back is that I can't Pause/TimeShift. I see the DVR "service" fixes that, but with a yearly fee. Actually you can Pause in the app without the DVR service, and on Android TV using Live Channels it will pause too. The buffer is held on the client and has different limits -...

Re: Live TV problems - stutters/freezes/timeout errors

something good to check but i am using cat6 cables. my setup has been the same for nearly a year (when i added the router) and has been working fine up until a month or so ago. no changes...it just appeared out of nowhere. maybe it's comcast? If you're having packet loss it's a problem with the swi...

Re: Live TV problems - stutters/freezes/timeout errors

You just reminded me of another problem I had when I first setup the prime... the network wiring i had only supported 100Mb and I tried using two gigibit switches. While the switches both seemed to operate ok, and I didn't notice problems with normal network traffic, running at gigabit speed over ca...

Re: Live TV problems - stutters/freezes/timeout errors

If you haven't yet, check out the Network Packet Loss post. The 2nd post on that thread provides a quick and easy way to determine if you're experiencing low-level packet loss. If confirmed then the 1st post provides a number of ways to determine the source and try to fix it. I used this to diagnose...

Re: Stutter on Live TV since latest firmware update

Are you sure it's not a network issue? I had a switch start to get flakey on me and experienced something very similar. It was very frustrating and took a long time to track it down.

Check out this post on how to determine if you're suffering any network packet loss.

Re: Grid Guide

The unofficial Kodi PVR Client already has a grid guide. I use it every day. It has an option to show DRM channels in the channel lineups. I don't see why you couldn't use it to schedule DRM recordings once we have that capability, even if you can't play them in Kodi. Thread here: https://forum.sil...

Re: Grid Guide

[removed by moderator] [removed by moderator] It's great that *you* don't want or need a grid guide but the fact that so many others *do* care about it indicates it's value. If SD wants to grow, and I'm sure they do, it's not an option they can afford to be dismissive of. Even if it costs more at l...

Re: Grid Guide

Lastly, all these people asking for options and a grid guide are missing the point.... it would raise the cost of the product to implement a grid guide. Actually I think you and SD are missing the point. A grid guide is very intuitive and naturally expected by users... every cable box and TV media ...

Re: TVJunkieMOD (Record, Request, Playback, Favorites +)

That's correct. The mod doesn't use the official HDHR DVR backend/service. The recording is done within the mod (mod must be running) to the recording path you set within its configure options. (History: I began modifying the official add-on prior to SD announcing the DVR service on kickstarter (ad...
