Re: HDHR4-2US (Connect) lost all channels after 20200907 - MonkMad

Interesting tips about the attenuation and signal strength, signcarver. (On a side note, there are no readily apparent instructions about which details or levels to provide, when posting an issue in these forums. The only obvious thing in most documentation and posts is to enable Diagnostic logging)...

Re: HDHR4-2US (Connect) lost all channels after 20200907 - MonkMad

UPDATE: The LTE filter arrived and was attached directly to the CONNECT device. The number of channels found increased from 3 to 7; but still far from the approximately 80 channels available. I think it is some component inside the device which has failed/is failing. The LTE filter seems to have fou...

Thanks signcarver; good info. Much appreciated.

The filter should arrive tomorrow; I'll let everyone knows what happens.

Re: HDHR4-2US (Connect) lost all channels after 20200907 - MonkMad

Thank you for the details, much appreciated. I'm wondering if the upcoming 5G rollout is resulting in frequency bands becoming more crowded. In my case, the antenna and coax did work with a TV sitting in the same location as the CONNECT, without using any filters on the line. So, I'm not very hopefu...

Re: HDHR4-2US (Connect) lost all channels after 20200907 - MonkMad

Thanks for the confirmation regarding the PRIME's power supply, Nick. I tested the CONNECT with the PRIME power supply. It seemed to have no issues with the power, but could not detect any channels either. The behavior is inconsistent (with both CONNECT and PRIME power supplies), in the sense that s...

Re: HDHR4-2US (Connect) lost all channels after 20200907

Thanks Nick. I'll try to find another power supply. Does the Prime have a similar one? Mine is sitting next to the Connect. The SD site says it is 5V 2.5/3A regulated power adapter - 2.1mm plug, center positive . I will also the check coax filters/connectors in the line. There are a couple, which ha...

Hi Ned, Nick,

Were you able to look into this issue? (I logged a support ticket also, but that has not received a response either)

Thanks

Re: New Record This Channel Feature

Hi ryanjames13, Your question is actually not connected to the topic of this thread, but I'll try to answer it. (Mods, please move the question and response to a new thread if possible, thanks) AFAIK, all TV tuners (and software using them) work the same way. One tuner can only be "tuned" to one fre...

Re: New Record This Channel Feature

Thanks for your responses, signcarver and rpcameron. In order to avoid reverse engineering the logic, and trying to figure out if something will record (or if it will record unwanted episodes), I suggested the enhancement above. I hope it is not that difficult to do, given that we already have "all ...

HDHR4-2US (Connect) lost all channels after 20200907 - MonkMad

I saw posts about people losing a few channels after upgrading to the latest (20200907) firmware, but in my case, my HDHomeRun CONNECT seems to have lost all channels after the upgrade. My other tuner (Prime) seems to work fine. Troubleshooting steps taken so far: Changed antenna and coax cable to e...

Posting an update:

After many restarts and uninstall/reinstall of apps, it seems to have fixed itself.

Re: New Record This Channel Feature

The "guide" was my guess about how the first-run, re-run logic works. :D Thanks for the details @signcarver, very helpful. I'm still wrapping my head around how this logic works, having been used to WMC (like most of us). Where does the "behind the scenes" original air date come from; is it channel ...

Re: New Record This Channel Feature

... This is supported today by creating a current-season recording task. The record engine will try OTA channel #1 first, then Cable channel #2 if there are no OTA tuners available. Nick Thanks Nick. Does this mean the DVR prioritizes HD channels over SD, and OTA over Cable? Also, if yes, is this p...
