Re: HDHomeRun Prime & Cox TV - Tuning Adapter Required?

DRM won't work with channels or ATV... in the phoenix market all but locals (and includes a few local sub channels) are now marked as being DRM protected. Last I heard Tucson market isn't quite as bad (yet) and I'm not sure on Sierra Vista as over the years I have only seen a couple of posts from do...

Re: HDHomeRun Prime & Cox TV - Tuning Adapter Required?

For just basic you may not need it as those channels may be in the map anyway but I do suggest picking one up just in case. For instance I pick up 400 channels with the scan without the TA and 660 with (note that they are duplicated in the 1000 range as well), until recently I would have issue witho...

Re: Acceptable NAS for DVR software

Just about anything released in the past 5 years that are linux based and allow ssh access. Officially auto-start is only available on the WD's (mycloud both old white single bay, white dual bay and EX and PR variants). If you go with another, you may wish to figure out how to autostart to turn on t...

Re: hdhomerun_discover returns two results for one HDHR-US device

The devices have both addresses as they always have an apipa address. Typically your pc/client won't see/discover the apipa address when its network is configured but can be if configured as such (i e. you may need to set zeroconfig (nozeroconf)) to disable apipa.

Flex apparently recording DRM channels

I've frequently noticed that my flex will communicate with the other tuners with the 169.254.x.y address and frequently I can see a prime with the led indicating a tuner is in use (quite often). When I went to check what was using it it was the flex which had locked the tuner for 3 hours to record f...

Re: HDHomeRun Prime compatible with new Cox upgrades?

What i don't like is that 6-12 months ago all the protected h.264 that cox had in Phoenix worked on both my xbox and ceton extenders as well as through the dlna (dtcp-ip) feature of my tvs. Now none of them really work and nearly everythingis h.264 and all cable channels are protected (about 7-10 lo...

Re: No channel Lineup

If its that low and verizon (or other fiber) the provider may even not have the ont set for providing tv (i.e. onu disabled). Same situation for the card though as keys get disabled after 30 days though Verizon might be a little easier bringing the card back online, rather than needing replacement, ...

Re: No channel Lineup

You would need to run a channel scan. If disconnected for more than 30 days (could be less just depends on certain timings) the cablecard would need to be re-paired and sometimes in that state its easier to get a new card from your provider then find the person who can send the proper signals. If yo...

Re: HDHomeRun Prime compatible with new Cox upgrades?

They recently expanded even more channels to h.264. Not sure what the cutoff date is/was but you should be (have been) able to get a STB rental for free for a year because of this change and I think if they say such offer expired I think they should honor it as they only stated to check a certain ch...

Re: CableCARD Activation Hotlines/Websites

what was being mentioned of fox not working wouldn't be your local fox but the national "fox" cable channels (prior to takeover and split) like fox news, fxx, fxm, natgeo, fs1 etc... as that requires proper pairing and those drm protected channels won't work with Channels with the prime (not sure on...

Re: Curl command to delete an episode?

Keep in mind that if you delete it, and use the same id again you will get the same error as the id is gone so the command is no longer valid.

Re: DVR using WD MyBookLive

The dvr authenticates using the DeviceAuth of the tuner so as long as it can see/connect to your tuner and connect to the internet it should be good to go... you can have any number if engines and they communicate with each other so only one makes the recording (usually the one with the most free sp...

Re: Channel 5003, 5004, 5005

Whenever you see a 5000 numbered channel, those are when it found a station/stream but couldn't get the virtual channel number. They should be considered random thus not usable by the dvr as another device may have them numbered differently. Most common for ota would probably be from a weak station ...

Re: Curl command to delete an episode?

did you add those spaces for posting or are they in your command?

I would also suggest putting the entire url in quotes (that was what was needed for me to get it to work using your example without spaces)
