Re: AC-4 Audio?

Yes, it is the client device/software that is responsible for both audio and video unless you have something in between that is doing transcoding before hand which SD's software/hardware/dvr does not (they had the extend tuner that did for what it tuned but with that you wouldn't need to worry about...

Re: Channel Tuning

Prior it was stated being a duo, not quatro... and some mistakenly call the original connect (4th gen) that only had 2 tuners for a duo. There was an issue with the firmware earlier this year with the 4th gen units that may have behaved like that (though most described it as always busy) but the duo...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

The tuners have nothing to do with AC4 and have always supported such when tuned to an ATSC 3.0 channel as that is what the spec states it would be. It is the client (rendering) devices that may have issue with AC4 not the tuners. Typically the tuner would be completely agnostic to what codecs are i...

Re: Channel Tuning

What are you referring to as transmitters? the devices have tuners not transmitters and those tuners receive data from transmitters so I am trying to understand how you are flipping on and off a transmitter. Though some may have devices that produce their own channels, your wording makes me think yo...

Re: Beta Firmware 20210505

I never even saw mention of Beta Firmware 20210505 as that was an APP update not firmware update (soon to be replaced with 20210511... not sure if it the platforms that were said to be delayed a day will have same date)

Re: Recordings take up too much space!

The main thing is to make sure the beginning of the file still has the metadata (first 64 ts packets which is approximately 12K... I want to say 12032 but didn't do the math) the extension still must be .mpg and remain as a ts. Most things won't keep the metadata packets so you may wish to copy that...

Re: hdhomerun_config_gui for macOS

hdhomerun_config_gui (gtk) won't work on mac (and I believe it has been longer than what you stated as a post in development stated a date around 2016). I don't remember if they updated hdhomerun_config on the mac to use the various plp's... but generally still works even if they didn't what exactly...

Re: Network Access to DVR Disk for Scribe Duo

it would be up to plex to support such and the only thing plex supports from the Scribe is it's tuners not it's DVR... basically access is only given by various http links. For an app to do it, it would get the recorded_files.json from the device but unlike older versions of the DVR that gave all th...

Re: Streamer?

Still a great device what really killed it for tivo was not integrating it with the tivo. As long as they don't kill it again with a bad firmware upgrade (all the devices have had them at one time or another but it seems only tivo, Nvidia, and google seemed to be more proactive in fixing though that...

Re: set dvr timing when same episode airs multiple times a day

Don't do "new" also note that red dot doesn't necessarily mean which airing will record only that it is a candidate. Make sure your other shows have higher priority so they are in use at that time... you may also need to pay attention if the previous program on any channels are recording as it will ...

Re: How do you use the HDHRUtil utilities?

Did you read the docs? (I usually find it easiest to download the whole package to see them) As I recall they are python scripts so how you run them may depend on your python install but most these days may allow such to just run (but when I just glanced at it, I don't believe a .py extension was us...

Re: Reception problems Spring 2021 - SD Tool questions

First off what frequency is that as it looks like it is about 19.5x higher than what can be tuned by the tuners I am going to assume channel 10 at 195000000 rather than 19500000000. Anytime you see a strength at 100% there is a good chance you are over amplifying the signal as you don't know how muc...

Re: Streamer?

Cheap android box often means no DRM... Android (google) TV should always support DRM provided they are not rooted. My favorites on the low end in price are the new Chromecast with Google TV (make sure it is the new one with Google TV), the Tivo Stream 4K, and the Jetstream 4K... I also had good luc...

Re: Hide Detected Channels

Favorites really doesn't do anything with SD's software other than which channel to use when a program comes on at the same time with the DVR. Other software and DLNA make use of favorites more like one would expect it to be.
