Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

I give up. I've decided to read some of the nearly 1,000 books I have on my To Read list. And the nearly 4TB of .wtv recordings should fill in any leftover time. I really appreciate all of your efforts to assist me in resolving this issue. I'm confident, that should I have chosen to, that I could ha...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

Your speeds are probably slow because you're using 2.4GHz wireless. 2.4 is heavily congested, having to share with other networks, Bluetooth, some cordless phones, various other wireless devices, and microwave ovens. Also, going through a floor attenuates the signal a lot more than going through th...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

I just don't trust Windows advanced networking that much. It's one of those "80% of the time, it works every time" situations. If it works fine, great, if not, no matter how much you fight it it's probably never going to work right and you're better off finding another way to do things. Just runnin...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

On the subject of the flakey internet connection and bridging. I've been doing some research and found this thread: https://superuser.com/questions/1386649/bridge-from-wifi-to-ethernet-not-working-windows-10 and the last comment read: I've been bridging a WiFi to Ethernet for along time now so it ca...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

OK, the fiddling worked a bit. I've got a picture and 24 hrs. of guide information. Clicking the link from the DVR purchase in My Account (bluecat9958@gmail.com) shows that the device is "linked". I forgot to include in my network information that I have two VPN services in my Network and Internet s...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

Windows 10 will work for HDHomeRun use. 1) DVR features not working - have you subscribed to the DVR service ($35/year)? Pause/FF/RW of live TV is supported without the DVR service - the DVR service gets you all the record features and 14-day guide. Edit - if you have subscribed please let me know ...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

Hi, The diagnostic logs from the record engine show it finding the HDHomeRun ok via your LAN subnet so everything looks fine. You don't appear to have a DVR account so the failed message is correct/normal. If you have a DVR account please let me know. What isn't working? Nick Windows 10. Need I say...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

Keep in mind times are UTC so most likely need to look later in the log (often for prime time even the next day) The DVR isn't authorized... So, I'm guessing the device still doesn't have Internet access through the PC it is connected to. I will just have to wait until I hear back on my tech suppor...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

Quote from signcarver - ... they occasionally have to do that when the isp is using some carrier grade nat that prevents the device from connecting to the internet through the same public ip as the "browser" activating it but the tuner will still need internet access to get that DeviceAuth. Not sure...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

Quote from signcarver - Prior to working on getting the DVR installed, make sure the HDHomeRun app has guide data (slice on right side of screen... no "grid"). ... (with guide data and images, not just the numbers/name) as it can cause other issues especially when on the same machine as the client (...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

Well, fiddle de dee. I moved it upstairs and connected it directly to the router and it activated. Usually, I don't know why the fiddling works. This time, well, I don't. I moved it back downstairs and voila, it works. So, the bottom line is: The instructions, FAQ and Troubleshooting Guides should i...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

Where is it not being detected? I repeat, DON'T WORRY IF IT DOESN'T SHOW UP IN EXPLORER, all that matters is it shows up in setup and that the tuner has an internet connection for guide to work as the software that works with the the tuner uses different discovery methods. I am NOT worried about it...

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

Regarding watching my Windows Media Center Recording (.wtv files). I installed the "full" Kodi software (not just the app, but I have no clue if I could have watched them if I just installed the app. Maybe when I build my "test" system I'll try it out.) and can watch them. I also installed a PVR (so...
