Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

I would suggest just closing this forum until there is anything new to announce. It's pointless when most posts are removed and it just makes the company look worse. It unfortunate that one of user just keep whine about the same thing over and over to point where he or she just got them self just b...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

Came back here to see if there is any news, there isn't any. If this ever comes out it's going to have to be real cheap or I'm out. I'm thinking about going with youtube tv. I hate the hd view app interface a bunch, still with WMC here but maybe not for long. I think they need find way bring back P...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

It's highly unlikely that cable providers will launch linear 4K channels in the first place, so this discussion is kind of pointless. They're going to follow in the footsteps of Comcast and deliver them via VOD/IPTV, which won't be available to CableCARD devices anyway. This is both because no cabl...

That is what I am afraid of. I don't know how much more it would be to swap out a 100Mbps for 1000Mbps ethernet port but I am sure people would willing eat the added cost.

Plus you can advertise Watch or Record 6 4k channels at one time
That true

Re: atsc 3.0

ATSC 3.0 supports 2-way communication, but only over the internet. Stations will broadcast their main video content over-the-air, but if you want to access additional content, or authenticate to view content, it will be done over the internet. 3.0 tuner manufacturers will not put a cellular connect...

Re: atsc 3.0

Even with regular ATSC, some broadcasters have been transmitting encrypted sub channels. I have picked them up occasionally with a high subchannel number - like 67.27 and such. I don't know for sure, but I would expect that the station must at least have the main channel free and clear. It stands t...

Re: atsc 3.0

I like the enthusiasm but you might want to look at a recent youtube report by Antenna Man on his experience with testing 3.0 broadcast from a testing center. Do look at the current prices he lists on the available 3.0 tuners and the dongle needed for authorizing other channels that are broadcast [...

4k = HEVC

The 4k streams we are seeing on ATSC 3 are around 16Mbps.

If cable is higher bitrate then figure 4 streams of 4k content.

That low vs in Boise, ID which is 40Mbps

That is incorrect, they are HEVC

The HDHR Prime is only a tuner, it is blind to any kind of codec information.
Can post a screenshot MediaInfo detail
What are using watch it with.
I know it blind to any kind of codec information after all it just copy the steam just like ATSC.

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

There are already 4k broadcasts on cable TV. My current HDHR tunes them just fine. By next year there will be many different channels all broadcasting 4k Live events via cable TV at the same time. ESPN + NBC + FOX + FS1 + NBA + NHL There will be no way to watch or record 6 of them at the same time ...

Confirming, you will be limited to max 5 streams of 4k content.

Nick
Not at 25Mbps with 100Mbps port it won't in theory. In practice you're likely to be bottlenecked on the 5 steam

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

I am getting worried this will no longer be up able to withstand the future. Fios 4k broadcasts are 25 Mbps. I think that is actually a very conservative bitrate for 4k When 4k becomes more common there is no way this thing will be able to record 6 4k broadcasts at once with 100 Mbs Ethernet So if ...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

If they are indeed working on an ATSC 3.0 tuner, then that might explain the delay in the Prime as other products (Servio/Scribe) have delayed it in the past. That said, I'm not convinced that they are working on an ATSC 3.0 tuner. I agree but we only see 1 tuner model and TV set at first with in t...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

They have stated they won't speculate such until it is ready so no point in asking. But if their atsc 3 tuner comes out first, i would suggest they make an announcement of no prime 6 if not expected very shortly after to keep people from asking about it (then of course hope they surprise us soon af...
