Re: Beginner question, I want to make the right purchase and not regret or spend for nothing.

If your intention is plex don't go for scribe/servio. Though they have stated a future firmware may make files they record more easily accessible, currently there is no easy way to get a file (other than http download) and to get a multi GB file over a 100Mbps port is painfully slow. Personally I wo...

Re: HD Channels not Recognized?

Best to ask in channels forum, though tmm1 may respond here as well. Most software these days don't support legacy devices that well and often when they do and you are on modern firmware, they still rely on the scan and what SD reports and to my knowledge SD has never provided that info in the lineu...

Re: Apple TV App (No Channels Found)

"All" models support clear qam... but how well SD's apps support it depends on your provider as guide needs psip data with name and virtual channel number... if guide is working for you with legacy tuners on SD's own apps, you would get the same experience with a modern tuner and the modern tuner ca...

Re: Basic cable with HDHomeRun DVR

Only if clear qam, not analog. Can I assume that you are in the US as cable in other parts of the world are slightly different and may depend on tuner model (though i believe 5th gen dvb tuners recently got an update to allow those to work with dvb-c). In the US one usually can tell by the channel n...

Re: Samsung TV 2018 - Channel guide is folder list?

Samsung removed rui support from its tv's years ago as it was supposed to only work with rvu (dtv)... it was only available temporarily on 2016 k series models. Since there were no other tv's that supported such, SD removed such feature from the tuners. Personally i think sd should have kept such ar...

Re: my.hdhomerun.com never ever finds HDHomerun tuner

Typically plans with that slow of internet frequently change ip. For my.hdhomerun.com to work, the browser must connect to sd from the same public ipv4 address that the tuner checked in from (it checks in every 8 hours but information can be up to 24 hours old if for some reason it doesn't check in)...

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

Super strong typically still typically needs to be attenuated but you haven't really given any levels yet for the community to give advice (nickk/neds have an advantage there as they can see the scan results). Personally I would go through every physical channel with config_gui and check the levels ...

Re: Apple TV App Downloaded

To add on to that... WMC does not use such scan results so any tuner you wish to use exclusively by WMC, you can disable all the channels, though you may need to do other things depending on guide source as I'm not sure if you use SD's DVR to get xml for epg123 if it uses tuners not configured to ge...

Re: Adding to lineup.json

Not the (necessarily) the cablecard... it means the scan was not able to find a stream there which is usually the result of being not subscribed but not always but the way the scan works there are hundreds of things that can prevent it from picking up the channel. Edit: CableCARDs were never meant t...

Re: Chicago local WLSDT (ABC), WFLDDT (FOX) no longer available

What I was referring to as a potential signal issue is because of the way the scan works... as it quickly needs to find a usable stream to add it to the lineup it moves so fast that any potential issue on that frequency can cause the scan to miss it. It can also be an issue that pops up that one par...

Re: Adding to lineup.json

Nothing you can do as far as the device/lineup.json goes other than more scans or confirm no issue on the frequency of the channel. I am not sure if plex allows other sources of channel lists across it's various parts... you might ask on their forum as well as if there is a way to specify ?show=all ...

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

The LTE issue will most likely not be seen on a TV and as nickk reported "super-strong signal across unused channels and the LTE band" I would look into such filter. Yes it could be caused by a bad amplifier but I strongly suggest to always use an LTE filter with any OTA tuner these days. Since you ...

Re: Dropouts on Recordings
