Re: Connect Quatro static/fixed IP

Technically that is not a static ip. Also, OP specified that DHCP would not be available on that subnet... as a result, one would not be able to do a DHCP reservation as you suggested.

Re: Record only HD version of show

It should only record one copy and if they are on at the same time HD will be prefered unless you marked the SD version of the channel as a favorite. What often confuses people is that the others are "properly" marked as candidates to record. The only time I have seen this come up as an issue is on ...

Re: Crash when deleting a file from MCEBuddy

typically one gets that when one deletes a program already deleted or not currently accessible (this most often happens when there are multiple ip addresses (paths) to the "same" file and it doesn't remove the other listing)... I have never heard of such ever being MCEBuddy related (though if the cl...

Re: How to control which HDHR tunes a particular broadcast channel

There is no such control other than using the red x to disable (though in theory it is based on deviceID with lowest being preferred as that "usually" puts OTA ahead of cable with the primes, but I haven't seen that being "consistent", many have asked that such be configurable by ip (reservation) an...

Re: Recorded Content Shows in Duplicate

The problem is that for some reason when using a shield as the dvr (which I personally think is a terrible idea the way such is implemented and should be viewed as nothing more than a novelty to say it can be done as I usually have to reset the client app and/or shield at least once a month which ca...

Re: DVR Recording

How are you adding tasks... there are some issues if you try to add more than one airing of the same show (you should be setting the series to record not individual episodes)

Re: Connect Quatro static/fixed IP

What exact old model/firmware on them as the "only" HDHomeRuns that allow setting of static IP are the "commercial" TECH models as they "all" use DHCP or APIPA when not available. I do recall the 1st and/or 2nd gen at one time allowing such but I don't believe modern firmware (last 6+ years) on them...

Re: We've added DVR Playback to Roku

It is not possible to roll back firmware. For the topic of this thread you would need to be on the later anyway. Try restarting the scribe/servio as there is an occasional bug that will not show some newly (since last restart of device) recorded content though it did actually record (a restart re-in...

Re: DVR Recording Starts Late

log times will be UTC the filename itself has the date/time it should have started recording (in UTC) The time of the file is typically the end of the recording but I have seen it all over the place on windows even when the file is correct. For example on one of my series that used to start at 7pm u...

So my big question is...

Can Optimum CableCard be set up without multiple days of agony?
Can it be done - yes

But most likely it may be a huge problem depending on your market and technician. You also may not (currently) be able to record as much unless on wmc and using extenders.

Re: HomeRun Scribe Duo and Apple TV 4K

There are 3rd party apps to use the tuner of a scribe... I am not aware of any on that platform that can access the scribe/servio dvr as unlike a nas or pc being used there are no shares for apps to see... only thing i can think of is possibly kodi but not sure the addons work, i just know that in t...

Re: Android App and Samsung TV, no DRM channels

You will never get DRM channels from a cablecard on a roku. [removed by moderator]. Most major phones can work provided they are approved stock firmware and non-rooted (note that even google's official firmware updates sometimes trips this issue up as they don't update the database to include the ch...

Re: Discover now only has one day

If one only has access to one day of data, that is usually a sign of the DVR/Devices not being registered to your account (possibly your subscription expired). I know at one time if a dvr engine wasn't discovered many things that "required" a subscription wouldn't work as it "assumed" that because o...

Re: DVR Recording Starts Late

tasks are stored in the cloud... the engine contacts SD based on your devices' DeviceAuth every hour or two and retrieves the rules for the next 4 hours (clients, just retrieve the list of rules (tasks) from SD)

Re: 2 channels not working - SLATE

When the TA is connected, all channel resolving is through that. Both the TA gets a channel map and the cablecard gets a map. In most instances the map should be the same when it comes to non-sdv channels with the TA having the advantage of also allow the tuning of the SDV channels. Depending on you...
