Re: A list of 50 Inch Smart TV's that support HDHomerun would be great !!!!

Widevine is used for Netflix and probably the HBO Now/HBO Go and other similar streaming services. DRM channels from your HDHomeRun use a different scheme called DTCP-IP, which is built in to the HDHomeRun app. Part of building it in to the app means that the app has to verify that the system it's ...

Re: A list of 50 Inch Smart TV's that support HDHomerun would be great !!!!

Widevine (not Windvine) is a DRM scheme owned by Google that is designed specifically for use with web streaming content. There are two main levels of Widevine, Level 3 which is just a basic protection running within the OS, and Level 1 which uses a special security component built in to the CPU to...

Re: A list of 50 Inch Smart TV's that support HDHomerun would be great !!!!

Google doesn't make the Shield, Nvidia does. Google made nexus but discontinued it. If those TVs run "AndroidTV" they will work with DRM. AndroidTV (one word) has the HDHomerun APP and support DRM. AndroidTV is different than Android TV Box which usually refers to Chinese boxes that run the tablet ...

Re: A list of 50 Inch Smart TV's that support HDHomerun would be great !!!!

Is DRM playback important? That would rule out the Fire TV Edition TVs. Sony, Sharp, Philips, Skyworth, and Hisense have TVs running Android TV that presumably should work. I haven't used most of them enough to give a recommendation other than it's probably best to avoid any Sony TVs pre-2019 or th...

Re: A list of 50 Inch Smart TV's that support HDHomerun would be great !!!!

The brands I listed all come from the official list at https://www.android.com/tv/ so they should be certified and support DRM content. Some of them like Sharp and Philips have just become available in the last couple months and are the first TVs running Android TV those companies have released in ...

Hi, Thank you again for the info you providing me. I had tried the Jetstream box and found it to be slow, and ended up returning it to Walmart. The MI box from my understanding doesn't have Ethernet port, and Wifi for me is choppy.. Its seems my optimal option is a smart tv that supports DRM and Eth...

Re: A list of 50 Inch Smart TV's that support HDHomerun would be great !!!!

Thank you both for the quick reply and information you have both have provided. It seems difficult to find many Android TV's. Should I trust FireTV/ or FireStick as my concern is that Amazon may turn around and terminate HDhomerun support at any time. Overall I am looking to have DRM support on the ...
