Re: HDHR5-4US: maximum length of LAN cable?

IIRC, the max length is 100m (~330ft). Longer than that, and you need a repeater or some other device (like a switch).

Take this as a request to allow us to disable background scans for cable PRIME tuners.
Yes, please allow for the disabling of background scans.

Re: why was my post removed?

Posts that have not been commented on in a certain period of time are purged. I believe it's a 90 day period, but it may be different.

Re: HDHomerun Viewer No Longer Working on my Android Box

Hi All, Apologies in advance, but I cross posted this in another thread under "Downloading Unofficial Kodi HDHR Pgm Using Git Browser", and I am repeating here since KenF suggested in this thread that I sideload the unofficial Kodi Addon by djp952", zuki.pvr.hdhomerundvr-android-aarch64-krypton-2.2...

VLC and Kodi both support DVB subtitles as well.

Re: Where is subtitle support?

Well, there are no problems with the hardware handling DVB subtitles. The problem is that SD's software doesn't support DVB subtitles. Your best bet is to pair SD's tuners with a different DVR. MythTV and Tvheadend are both quite adept, and in my experience Kodi works nicely as a frontend that suppo...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

It's the last day of June, has anyone gotten an update? I believe the current status is that an update went out in the past two weeks which included the MPEG2 decoding fix. (I received this on both of my 4K sticks.) However, EU (especially UK) users may have some more waiting, as apparently there i...

Re: What kind of hardware required for HDHR Recording computer?

Depends on the OS. If it's something lightweight like Linux without a GUI, I don't think you could find an AMD64 system that couldn't do 6. A dual-core ARM with a gig of RAM can handle that. The highest data rates seen in real-world usage are Canadian OTA broadcasts and a few Fios HD channels, whic...

Re: Subtitles

Thanks, I wonder when this will become available? I have come from plex (they dumped EPG for AUS) and am looking for a better solution that allows me to use my HDHomeRun to record TV shows and capture the subtitles that are provided. I know if I watch the stream via VLC I can get them, but I can't ...

Is an HDHR3-US considered a "legacy" device?
Yes. The only 3rd gen device (HDHR3) that isn't legacy is the Prime (HDHR3-CC).

(Please correct me if I'm wrong.)

Re: Specifying IP Address

No. SD's software relies upon broadcast packets in order to find devices/software, and those usually don't traverse subnet/VLAN boundaries. Some routers may allow you to setup a broadcast relay to work around this limitation, but it varies based upon your router. For Ubiquiti's line of EdgeRouters, ...

Re: Light Windows app to Find Devices, or better yet, a dashboard

The Windows app ships with the command line app that can do most of that.
  1. To find devices on your network:

    Code: Select all

    hdhomerun_config discover
    
  2. To restart a device (use the proper DeviceID instead of FFFFFFFF):

    Code: Select all

    hdhomerun_config FFFFFFFF set /sys/restart self

Re: HDHomeRun Prime 6 update?

Nickk/ned: Will this new 6 tuner also have the ability to have an api to control the channels/volume/full screen/etc. I’m at a loss as to why you can not implement those in the current prime. I have proven you are able to talk to a windows 10 app in its “sandbox” but neither of you two have talked ...
