Re: xfinity channel not showing

No idea, sorry. The VLC app is a bit odd on TV platforms. My experience is on the Apple TV and I have the same problem.

Re: xfinity channel not showing

... xfinity cable box ... I don't think that's considered streaming is it? Yes. It can be. The Xfinity branded cable boxes can move between their streaming platform and regular cable seamlessly.

Re: xfinity channel not showing

It's possible that program is now only available on their streaming platform and no longer available one traditional cable.

What is the purpose of "cloud assisted lineup URL"?

FW 20210422 noted that legacy models now "Use https for cloud assisted lineup URL." Glad to see the move from http to https.

What is the cloud assisted lineup feature?

Re: DHCP client always using broadcast as the destination - alhaunts

That's to say that all mDNS name resolution, mDNS service discovery tasks, and all server services are available on all IP addresses at all times including link-local? Then, the clien...

Apple TV Remote Alternatives

The Apple TV and similar platforms are excellent clients for consuming HDHR content but their human interface, at times, can be lacking. MSOs/MVPDs have also adopted the Apple TV as a preferred platform to deliver live tv to end users. Their wide application has created a new accessory market, inclu...
