Re: Does Prime work with DRM and DVR on TCL Roku TV?

The hdhomerun dvr is not compatible with roku. If you want to use a roku, you will need to use a 3rd party dvr program but no drm. Fire tv will work but again no drm. Personally, I use windows mini computers and nvidia shield android tv boxes. Drm will work with the sony, Plus it supports live chann...

Memorial day

It is memorial day and around here it is celebrated as the beginning of summer or MID YEAR. I know you promised the prime 6 MID YEAR and we all thought it meant last year but maybe this MID YEAR will be the year. I will admit over the last few months, I have tried other solutions (fios one) but have...

Re: Local Network Only??

In order to stream remotely, you need a program like emby or plex. Personally, I prefer emby as I find it to be more stable. You will also need hardware capable of transcoding for the server. Another option is a layer 2 vpn, however this will have a much higher bandwidth requirement.

Re: Jittery and pixelated video - DarrenWBaker

Your cablecard is not validated. Try calling verizon and get them to manually validate it. I have had to have them do this in the past as well.

Re: Comskip with HDhomerun DVR

NedS: there clearly is interest in skipping commercials. Why not add support to read the output of comskip into the hdhomerun dvr?

Re: Comskip with HDhomerun DVR

NedS: That will only output a file saying where in the recording the commercials are. It will not remove the commercials from the recordings and the hdhomerun dvr can not read those files to skip over the commercials automatically. The only solution is to use mcebuddy.

Re: Comskip with HDhomerun DVR

The only way that I know of to do this is with the donator version of mcebuddy. Unfortunately, this is windows only. A lot of things have to be correct in order for the dvr to play the shortened file such as metadata, codec, container and extension.

Re: Can't play 4K/HDR HDHR Prime Recording

I know the win 10 and android app support h265/ac3 as I have mcebuddy transcode all of my recordings to that.

promo email

I just received a promo email from silicon dust. It mentions "surprises". I am not a big fan of being surprised so lets cut to the chase. Are those surprises you talked about the prime 6 as frankly that is the only new product that you are scheduled to release that I am interested in.

dvr hardware sale

If anyone is interested dell has a sale going on on the t30. (https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/povw/poweredge-t30). It makes an excellent dvr backend and runs emby/plex wonderfully.

Re: Cheapest option to broadcast live TV outside home

I know I am a bit late to the party here but try a layer 2 vpn with the free hdhomerun app. This option requires the most bandwidth but should be 100% free if you use openvpn in tap mode.

Re: What do you guys think?

Personally, I would skip it for the following reasons. 1. Haswell is 4 generatons old. 2. GPU does not support h265. 3. 4GB ram seems low 4. 64gb ssd will barely hold os with limited programs, no data or recordings. 5. Windows 8.1 is old 6. minimum drive size for windows 10 1903 is 32gb.
