Re: Weird problem with DVR installation on Windows 10

I would generate a new one as there have been some issues when there are 2 that have the same number on the same network and though you probably don't intend on using the other engine perhaps one day it starts up.

Re: Where is paused Live TV saved (Connect Quattro)

If you have the dvr engine installed somewhere that would be detectable by the app it will use that for non-drm protected content. If no dvr (or drm) the buffer is in ram so many devices barely can handle such. Roku can be a different story.

Re: HDHR-US not getting channels since 20200225 update

I would probably start with power supply as typically the reset after a firmware update (or other reset/power outage) will start showing such problems (until the reset it often continues working as normal). The legacy devices do not maintain their own lineup. If you are on recent firmware, I forget ...

Re: Cannot delete tasks in DVR.

For what it's worth, I really enjoyed the new UI in setting up NFL recordings for certain teams and channels (my cable provider has everything DRM so I only include OTA channels, toying with the idea of also including cable equivalent). Now to see if they actually work come Thursday (I don't anticip...

Re: Q: Will HDHomeRun auto re record a One Time Recording

Note that one-time rules are higher priority than series rules so if your other rules are series rules the ont-time rule will record. I believe an exception to such is when all tuners are in use and padding takes it past the start of the one time rule on another channel. Or at least that is how it ...

Re: How do you justify the 4K in the shop.

I find nothing wrong with it but it might be nice for a disclaimer about AC4 and HEVC device/plex compatibility for AC3 stations but everything in there isn't really misleading to most looking for an ATSC 3.0 tuner but one would have to know about the HEVC/AC4 challenges... but again, such isn't rea...

Re: Recording 4K HDR via curl/FFMPEG

What 4k content are you referring to (source/channel/provider) as there is very little available in 4k that the tuners will be able to pick up (most 4k content would be encrypted). The tuner typically just passes the bits to whatever is recording and depending on what software you use it may try to ...

Re: HDHR5-4US Not Detecting Channels

Power supply is usually the culprit... almost surprised you didn't fry it at 6V but to tune it needs 5V with extremely low ripple.

look at the picture posted above of config_gui... if you are on the latest it will have places to check for plp at the bottom... that picture had plp0 and plp2 checked and because they were capable of both the boxes for lock are also shown much bigger above (in my market the station with multiple pl...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham

if it says no data there, you most likely need a different plp combination... the picture before had plp0 and plp2 checked I believe. (and you need a very recent config to do so) There are some cases where plps can conflict with one another and not be tuned simultaneously and also some cases where a...

Re: Another $30 Android TV box

Doesn't really matter if it is or not...as it does a pretty fine job on that device either way As I mentioned when they first did such (which wasn't even necessary for many people) I could tell by the skin tones that there was a redshift that often happens when one goes to software decoding.

Re: Stop Servio recording, but still allow payback

Thats not what the Servio is intended to do but typically the servio won't record if your other engine has more free space. I would move the stuff you want to keep off the device and then disconnect. Personally to move such off I would disconnect, pull the drive, mount on a linux box (or vm) and pul...

Re: Another $30 Android TV box

Isn't the TiVo 4k has the MPEG2 bug with latest firmware? I know SD has to blacklist it. I've never had any real issues with Tivo Stream 4k... there was a week that Tivo released a firmware than many had got which caused issues and so caused sd to blacklist (I wish they never had blacklisted as it ...

Re: HDHR3 url for VLC

With the exception of the prime and expand which are 3rd gen cable/non-ota devices (expand can be 5th as well depending on when purchased), you will need a 4th gen or later tuner to take advantage of http streaming as the 3rd gen or earlier devices can't support such. You will have to look at settin...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Raleigh/Durham

If you are referring to the scan, not all the results get added to the scan. It is supposed to pick the one with higher resolution then by signal quality (eventually also by codec if not already). If you are referring to the hdhomerun_config_gui screen it can depend on which plp's are locked... some...
