Re: Replacing WMC

When watching TV, be it a recording or live, the TV server is in the loop. For live tv it is the timeshifting buffer enabling pause/rewind/fast forward. And yeah, there's a version of the HDHomerun Record engine for almost everything. Off the top of my head it supports Windows, Mac, Linux, FreeBSD,...

Re: Replacing WMC

So, the reason I don't recommend Roku is because Silicondust doesn't have an official app for it, most Roku's lack native MPEG-2 decode capability which is what live TV is transmit as, and you have less freedom when it comes to software packages. Sure, they have a lot of apps in their store, but on...

Re: Replacing WMC

I run NextPVR as a backup recording platform with our DVR as the primary. Low-flying planes foul up my reception far too often, so a second device recording off a different antenna pointed in a different direction is vital to piecing together one perfect recording. Pretty happy with how the recordi...

Re: Replacing WMC

I'm still using WMC, and while others like Emby, or Kodi have caught up quite a bit WMC still takes the cake for metadata and simplicity. the overlays are well thought out, useful, and easily accessible. MCE remotes have shortcuts for most libraries (Newer players decided to ditch shortcut keys for...

Re: Replacing WMC

So, based on what you said there, I think going with a NAS + HDHomerun Record service + STB devices (i.e. Fire TV Stick, NVIDIA Shield TV, etc, just don't use Roku) at each TV might be the way to go for you. This will give you the same interface at each TV for a relatively low price (Fire TV Sticks...

Re: Replacing WMC

So one thing I've wondered about is just switching to a NAS - I believe some do transcoding. Or I guess there are free ones that I could install on current hardware. I'm just not sure if that is something that would work with the HDHomerun DVR service or not. Yeah, some NAS devices do support trans...

Re: Replacing WMC

So, when WMC guide data became unreliable a few years back, I switched to NextPVR as a backend with Kodi and the NPVR addon as a frontend. That worked really well for a few years, enabling me to use my PC as a server as opposed to the living room device. I just used an NVIDIA Shield TV and Fire TV's...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

So, I ordered my Fire Stick 4K before seeing this thread which had me a bit worried. I'm happy to report that when I first set it up and tested TV streams from my Homerun, I also experienced the green flickering screen. However, once I applied the available system update the problem was resolved. It...

Re: HDHR-DVRUI - A PHP/Web Interface to your HDHR DVR Setup

you need to make sure the http service can write the .css i.e. make sure .../themes/default is writable by the http user on your system Ok, so I've gotten some success by doing that, but still not 100% yet. Now the page is formatted correctly, but I'm still receiving the invalid status error as soo...

Re: HDHR-DVRUI - A PHP/Web Interface to your HDHR DVR Setup

I'm trying to get the UI up and running as I'm returning to the HDHomerun DVR after being disappointed with Plex. I was previously using this UI a few months ago, but now I'm having the following issue. Whenever I bring up the index page, I get an Error invalid status: +: status: 500 and an improper...
