Re: Win7 WMC and DVR service

Thanks for the replies. I've been reluctant to install any of the newer DVR software, beta or otherwise, on my working WMC machine since I didn't want to cause any issues and figured this wasn't a very common test case. And when it's a system the wife's using, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. That s...

Win7 WMC and DVR service

Besides the obvious risk of contention for tuners is there any reason I can't have WMC and the DVR service coexist on the same Win7 machine? I'm continuing to use WMC since I have a cable card and need DRM recording but am considering running the DVR service on the same machine. I have a Jetstream c...

Re: Mibox is not ready for the new UI

Just as signcarver mentioned the UI is really slow on the Jetstream as well. Seems worse than it used to be with more recent changes. Thankfully the Channels app works well enough.

Re: Can I record DRM shows?

@JamesMi just to make sure the info is clear. As Spectrum is using switched video you need a tuning adapter, as others stated. This will allow you to *watch* DRM channels using the SD app and dvr, but you can't record them. The only way to get recording and playback ability is through Windows Media ...

Re: Synology DS218+ as a DVR Platform - Thoughts?

Assuming the recording of DRM protected content is added by the end of 2019, the solution looks at least as good as WMC. Unfortunately it doesn't look like that's going to be the case. Note the new info on the Prime 6 product page. We'll be lucky if we ever see recording and playback of protected c...

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...

Question re: TVJunkieMOD

Question about this mod... does it use the HDHomeRun's DVR features to initiate recording via the remote recording service - in this case installed on my NAS - or does it do the recording itself to whatever directory the mod is configured to use? I ask because I assumed it used the new DVR features ...
