Re: Still hung up on font size

Agreed, the new fonts are much too large. Couple that with the way things are misaligned on the screen leaving large empty spaces the new UI just doesn't get enough of the right info to the screen yet.

Re: Fire Stick 4k

This band-aid makes my surround sound sad. :| Maybe it's just the 'auto' feature that is broken. Couldn't you change the settings to 'Always Dolby Digital'? It's the asinine way Amazon is implementing audio that's the issue. I want pass-thru to work, which you'd think would be the simplest thing, b...

Re: Would like to have "Shrink to Fit" option on Fire TV

This sure deserves a 'what the heck Amazon!' Good info to know in case the rest of the FTV fleet suffers the same fate.

Re: Would like to have "Shrink to Fit" option on Fire TV

What do you mean the scaling isn't available? You can't scale/shrink the display to fit the screen on with the firestick display settings. Amazon tells you to set your tv for native mode, which isn't available on this older Toshiba TV, which like some others, overscans. All my FireTv's have this op...

Neither, it's the external HDHR-DVRUI web based stuff.

Re: DRM

I would guess it's more likely an encrypted file written to any normal DVR location, with the decryption/validation coming from the cloud.

Re: Air Date: Wed Dec/31 1969

This has been broken for quite a while. There is no need worry about future recordings, those are completely handled by the SD back end. The DVR UI is just a way to visualize things.

Re: The This Old House Hour recording same "new" episode multiple times

So it sounds like the moral of the story is SD is working properly, the guide data provider is working properly, but the local stations are providing bad data. Any of the 'fixes' discussed are only band-aids to mask that problem, and will not work if the original broadcast is indeed preempted for so...

Re: The This Old House Hour recording same "new" episode multiple times

The problem is the first airing tag is being used incorrectly. Who sets this? Is this directly from the broadcaster? From the data provider? SD?

Re: The This Old House Hour recording same "new" episode multiple times

Are you looking at the extracted data after the TS packet headers have been stripped or the raw file data in a hex editor? Wondering if you're just seeing the sync byte for the next packet. Good catch, it was indeed on the sync byte. This makes 100% of the metadata the same between the two files, o...

Re: The This Old House Hour recording same "new" episode multiple times

To add some more data points, my DVR recorded S17E16 twice from the same channel. Once on 3/28 when the original showing was on, then again on 3/30. The DVR clearly knew the original air date according to the name, yet still it recorded. The This Old House Hour S17E16 20190328 [20190330-1300].mpg Th...

Re: Feedback on new Discover Now

And, at the risk of making people hyperventilate, the channel number and network should not matter. Who cares if the show is on CBS or ABC? What you care about is the show, not the random distributor. When Brooklyn 99 changed channels, did it suddenly become better or worse? The only reason it woul...
