Re: New Record This Channel Feature

Actually, re-runs being marked new in the guide (by Gracenote) is quite common on Discovery networks, too. Programs that had a first run on Food, HGTV and Discovery are often marked as "New" in the guide when they first re-air on Cooking, DIY and other channels in their portfolio. As an example, whi...

Why should I select SD HDHomerun Premium TV which requires a tuner over another service as Sling or Youtube TV which doesn't?
is there an upside to it?
Well, considering there is no more Premium TV, and hasn't been for quite some time, I think you ought to look at other options.

Re: New Record This Channel Feature

Pardon my ignorance, but I'm puzzled why anyone would ever need a feature to specify a particular channel that they'd like to use. In my evidently limited experience, I've never seen a show broadcast with the same name on different channels. Maybe this is valid outside the US? Please educate me. Ma...

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

Here is one simple question for Nick or Ned... Have there been discussions of scrapping the Prime 6 now that the CableCard mandate is over? A better question: has the Prime6 even been submitted to CableLabs for certification. Back in July it was disclosed that certification had yet to even begin. T...

Re: Questions on DVR behavior

You can specify a one-time-recording (exact channel + timeslot in the guide). A one-time-recording will record an episode even if the system thinks you already have that episode. Can a one-time recording be specified separate from a guide listing? Meaning, can I set a task to record on channel 7.1 ...

Re: Airtv mini 4k dongle mpeg2 fix please

I'm sorry for the slow progress on this, but rest assure we have not forgotten about it. I believe we are trying to figure out if we need to block all MPEG2 hardware decoding, or just some (such as interlaced content). What's wrong with offering an option between software and hardware decoding for ...

Re: SAP typo in ui

I normally don't use SAP but I accidentally hit it today and noticed that the pop-up message say "Spa Stereo Audio" SAP is "Secondary Audio Programming". "Spa Stereo Audio" is further defining what that secondary audio channel is: a Spanish audio track with stereo quality audio (2.0 channel audio, ...

Re: No Internet, No App????

The problem is their "New UI" that was supposed to unify their platforms. They switched from native apps on platforms to a React-based internet hosted app. So essentially, the HDHR app UI is nothing more than JS-based website hosted on their servers. No internet, no app. Also, their app doesn't supp...

Re: Tasks - enhancement suggestion

At best, it might be possible for the software to know which programs have more than one airing of the same conflicting episode, and be able to sacrifice the first airing of a high priority show, because later that night it will be recorded (or something to that extent). However, that's a really tr...

Re: Do the tuners automatically detect channels perodically?

I believe it's something like every 3 days. The tuner does it in the background, and you can not disable it.

Re: Working with Kodi...

For WMC remotes that have a "DVD Menu" button, that button is mapped by default to the context menu in Kodi.

Also, the keymappings for remotes in Kodi is completely customizable. If you don't like the long-press of OK, assign a different key to handle that function.

Re: Tasks - enhancement suggestion

"Why not add another tuner" as a buffer so to speak. Because you shouldn't have to spend more money to address a problem that the software should be handling. Granted, because of the software's limitations, the only solutions are to either purchase additional tuners, or use EOLed software that won'...

Re: Tasks - enhancement suggestion

STB – Set-top box. Think of the DVR provided by your cable company, or from that company that starts with "T" that has become synonymous with DVR. The best-in-class PC DVR experience is still WMC. Presently I am using Channels as my DVR, as I have found its additional features to be more of a value-...
