Re: HDHomeRun Flex 4K poor reception.

On that it is most likely too strong of a signal (I would say 80% when someone reports 100% strength, especially on weakest, it is too strong). For me my Flex picks up far more than my extend (and that isn't even counting atsc 3). In general the newer the generation the more susceptible it is to too...

Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

The tuner must obey DRM rules whenever they occur... WMC communicates with the tuner a different way than the modern apps do and as a result when it encounters DRM handles such appropriately. Personally I would remove the USB cable between the prime and TA, run the scan, and see how it behaves and w...

Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

There was someone about a year or so ago had an issue where the cablecard map pointed to a different frequency than the the TA and the TA pointed to drm protected channels but the cablecard map pointed to a non-protected stream. Though I find it hard to believe given the nature of how the TA is supp...

Re: HD Prime Clear qam

a prime, as well as any of the other HDHomeRun tuners (perhaps not some international models) can tune clear qam without a cablecard. Unless you know that your provider has appropriate psip data provided, you may find yourself needing 3rd party software to more easily use clear qam (guide, channel n...

Re: Feature request?

Are you actually scraping the status screen (tuners) rather than status.json?

Re: HDHR Apps - AppleTV stutter - Jedi71

I would never expect such to record even on windows/android as the ui used to bring up the program so you could set up a task that could record it that was quite distracting, not actually record it by pressing that button. (Yes I know they changed that long ago) However the fix may be as simple as n...

Re: Odd channel reception in my house

I did recently read one could sideload the apk from amazon to a shield for such service and it now works where before it didn't (so not sure how long that behavior will last). Also the issue you encountered "could" be what many refer to as the nvidia bug if that station uses such encoding (it wouldn...

Re: Odd channel reception in my house

roku is one of the worse possible tv devices to use for tv streams. However since it can work for most broadcast stations SD chose to offer such roku channel (but won't officially support such with a prime as too often cable channels won't work) but it is always reliant on on the roku player which i...

Re: Phoenix, a couple of channels missing data

It was working for a day or two but Grit on 51.7 has no data again but is still showing the same program as 61.2 if I tune it (a few seconds difference).

Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

WMC doesn't use the scan and drm is on the fly as to whether it has it or not and can change at any time... sd's app is reliant on the scan and occasionally doesn't pick up whether or not a channel has drm... the tuner is required to force such if it happens to change mid stream. As a result if a ch...

Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

Assuming you mean with SD's app in windows 8.1 and not WMC, the difference between the app in win 7/8.1 and the win10 app is the win10 app will use your DVR Engine for live (unless DRM) which suggests that the channels isn't known by the DVR and/or it is having trouble reaching the tuner... it can a...

As he stated, he wants the real recording... they will replay it as a live broadcast in their test environment rather than as a recording.

Re: Flex 4k + External Drive + HDHR: how does recording work

Tasks (recording rules) are in the cloud. Every hour or so the record engine(s) (doesn't matter if the engine is on the flex, scribe, seevio, nas, windows pc, mac, or even enabled in android app with sufficient local storage on that platform... the engine behaves the same) sends a broadcast to the s...

Phoenix, a couple of channels missing data

In looking at the missing artwork I noticed I had an OTA channel missing data as well as a cable channel. 51.7 is Grit... this doesn't appear to be listed on zap either, should be "same" programs as 61.2 54 NewsNation this actually does have guide data on zap so it just might be a day or two to filt...
