Re: 100% signal strength but low signal quality?

Make sure you state make/model of antenna but typically whenever antenna signal strength is at 100% there is a potential issue that the strength is well above that which causes the signal quality issues. 2 miles from those towers certainly suggests that is the issue. My suggestion would be to attenu...

Re: How stop HDhomerun DVR from Recording same Sports show twice

To not record again the Record Engine must be able to see the file... what many do with mcebuddy is leave a file with just the metadata in the original location (of course that will list as a show to play). If you are keeping the metadata intact, just make sure it is in a location the engine can see...

Re: Random HDHR's shown on my.hdhomerun.com

That returns any device/engine that connected from the same public ip that you used to view such from (I believe in the past 24, possibly 48 hours). The my.hdhomerun.com site then only displays any tuner from that list that it can actually reach. (so if there is proper routing enabled between subnet...

Re: Firmware Update on very old PRIME

Though nothing I'm aware of legally "prevents" sd from allowing firmware downgrades on non-cablecard models, any modern tuner (those with dlna/http streaming, i.e. those that work with the dvr) do not allow downgrades of firmware. Only 3rd gen (non-prime/non-expand) or older allow downgrading of fir...

Re: HD HomeRun broken after Windows update?

Again, vga is not a digital display thus not hdcp capable. Cloning a display is also not permitted (extending is). When wmc displays on vga it actually downscales the image first (which SD's hdhomerun app doesn't do and is required by cabkelabs) then wmc may upscale later. Though some "can" get such...

Re: Nothing in Recorded tab

If on the same machine make sure you are on latest beta engine as a windows update requires it and make sure you do the loopback fix.

Re: HDHomeRun Prime - Possible to watch TV when channels have DRM?

For all practical purposes, it wouldn't be up to SD to support such... roku would need to support dtcp-ip (which I don't see happening anytime soon).

Re: DRM Channels Not Playing - Nvidia shield

The fix went out yesterday... and there was another today... both early access and release should have got it... double check the ui version and you may also want to toggle between early access and not to "force" if not on b from yesterday or today's

Re: How to retire the slice on W10 UI 20200114g

As stated in the changelog... 16b fixed a trash can (though not sure that was only fix or what else they took out from 16 as I can't imagine fixing a trash can caused such havoc yesterday which 16b also fixed) , 17 fixed the back. I would really like any more updates out on early access for at least...

Re: HD HomeRun broken after Windows update?

VGA will never have hdcp as it is analog... as stated the requirement is for hdcp on all digital displays and might work with a vga display along side a digital but most likely shouldn't when cloned.

Re: Missed Recordings

Like I said jeopardy goat recorded for me at that time on anything using gracenote data as i had it set to record but it ended the night before (in theory could have gone 3 more episodes if each won 2 as it was a race to 3 wins). I will also say that according to others in my house the cable box at ...

Re: Android TV: Screen saver and skip while paused

Typically skip while pause would go a frame at a time in most platforms i worked with, but that doesn't sound like what you are looking for so i would be against such if that wasn't what you meant.
