Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

You guys have no idea how much it's killing us that we can't tell all of you the whole story. As long as there's any chance of the PRIME 6 still being released, we're going to play it safe and not say anything publicly that might hurt those chances. NedS, Is the issue making a box with 6 tuners for...

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

I do believe an M Card can only support up to 6 streams (tuners), so there'd be very little advantage to making a device capable of more than 6 streams. You'd still need an additional card for each multiple of 6. In a way, I wish they stuck with the Prime 3 tuner. This way we could just buy additio...

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

And when is this now scheduled to come out anyway? ANY ideas at all? EVen iif only to tell us what is holding it up Once it is approved by Cable Labs then it will go into manufacturing. I hope Cable Labs, made up of all the cable operators themselves making streaming boxes now it seems, will work w...

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

I sadly truly believe that SD has abandoned the Prime 6 all together. They keep rolling out other products and nothing on the Prime 6, no updates, status, nothing. I just got an email that they are starting a Kickstarter to roll out the 4k Quatro utilizing 2 tuners for ATSC 3.0 and all 4 tuners supp...

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

It's too bad these moderators consider people "whining" about the Prime 6, which was announced as coming over 2 years ago, and remove their comments or worse ban them for describing frustrations at not seeing the product Silicon Dust keeps hyping but are failing for over 2 years to produce. Removin...

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

At this point the only real reason to have a new Prime 6 tuner is for those that want to DVR shows either via the HDHome Run app or Plex Pass DVR. Things are changing now if all you want to do is stream live tv but not record, many options. [removed by moderator - see forum rules]

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

I am still planning on getting a Prime 6, but it depends on how things change between now and when it comes out. I have Nvidia Shield with apps to watch any content that I please. I also have a HDHomerun Prime that works perfectly. If Comcast comes out with Xfinity Stream on my Nvidia Shield, then ...

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

It was on this very fourm that one of you stated that a certain gen was known for weak tuners No. All HDHomeRun PRIME (HDHR3-CC) units use the same tuners and RF input stage. The RF performance exceeds cable industry certification goals and every unit is RF tested at factory. The tuners gradualy fa...

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

I've been planning to buy 2, to replace the 2 Primes I currently have. But, I'm still using WMC, so, that may not be a viable long term plan. I was an early supporter of the DVR project, but WMC is just so easy and has been super-stable for us since Windows 7 and solid-state OS drives. Obviously, a...

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

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm looking forward to Lon Seidman's annual interview with Ted Head at CES 2020 so we can hear Ted promise the Prime 6 sometime in late 2020. Why stop at 2020. it'll be great promotional announcement for 2021 also By 2021 cablecards may not even exist. Maybe th...

NedS wrote: Thu Aug 22, 2019 2:28 pm Correct, it's ether in the client app or the DVR software. Is your DVR software running the latest version? You can check http://my.hdhomerun.com and look for the X mark or a check mark next to the DVR version number.
Now for the real big question Ned, when is the Prime 6 coming out????

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

The 3 tuner supplies ran out, and since the hardware changed it has to go through CableLabs certification. But you mention recording DRM is important but yet you say you use Plex DVR, you know if SD gets approval for DRM recording, Plex still will not be able to view those recordings.... nor will i...
