Does the WMC Service need to be running for tuner discovery? (Never mind)

I have the latest HDHOMERUN SW installed on Win 8.1 Pro with WMC 8.1 but cannot complete WMC tuner setup (for a Prime) because it is not found. I've checked all the network troubleshooting tips but noticed that the HDHOMERUN WMC Service is not running. If I try to start it it immediately shuts back ...

Re: Google Live Issues with HD Homerun Prime

Thanks to both you guys for the heads-up on the built-in TV app. I had never set it up assuming it was only for the built-in OTA tuner. It seems to perform about the same as the Live Channels app with the Prime and I like the way it's integrated into the Sony remote. Also like the Live Channels, it ...

Re: Google Live Issues with HD Homerun Prime

Just to give you another perspective on Sony Android TV with Spectrum and HDHR Prime with mostly DRM channels, I have an even older model (a 930D from 2016), and channel up/down works using the Sony remote. Because it's an older model Sony with a slow processor, I had to learn to adjust my expectati...

Re: Content Protection Required

I'm running a HDHomeRun Prime with Spectrum in the New York Finger Lakes area and I don't see the issue on those channels on Windows 10. I do occasionally get the error on all DRM channels in Sony TV with Android TV, but that clears when I restart Android TV.

Re: AC3 Passthrough

Here's another little nugget of information. I found that if I turn on AC3 Passthru in HDHR, then exit and open Live Channels, I get 5.1 Dolby as expected and dialog is in sync. If I exit and open HDHR to the same channel, dialog is out of sync, with delay getting even worse over time or if I change...

Re: AC3 Passthrough

Dialog audio is consistently out of sync with video on my SONY Android TVs with AC3 on as well. I don't see this issue on my Chromecast Google TV though. However, there is a big difference in processing power between the two and the SONYs are on version 8 while the Chromecast is on Version 10, in ca...

Re: Spectrum dropping cable card support

Are you saying they wouldn't activate the service for your existing card and TA, or they wouldn't issue you a new card and TA? I'm also on Spectrum CC service but in upstate NY.

Re: Cox and DRM

If you decide on Android TV (new Sony TV or Chromecast dongle) and prefer a grid-type channel guide, you can use Google's Live Channels app with your Prime.

Re: Windows 10 Live Playback Issue

I also see similar popup Windows error windows that do not close unless I close the app. Just started happening over the last week or so.

I would like to bring back the topic of proper Xbox One remote control support.

When can we expect full support for remote controls such as the PDP Talon on the Xbox One?

(And when can we expect full support for MCE remote controls on Windows 10?)

Thanks!
Me too!
