Re: Apple TV app (tvOS)

Looking forward to this happening, because Channels app has gone on a direction not suitable for european users. They have no option to just subscribe to DVR, we have to pay a monthly fee for features we can't use here in Europe. :? To what "monthly fee for features we can't use" do you refer? I've...

Re: Channel Detection not showing all channels when finished - wlieber

OTA Reception has progressively declined over a number of weeks/months and my HD Homerun is unusable. Have you tested with anything other than your HDHR tuner, such as a TV? Being as this has happened "over a number of weeks/months," my suspicion is the OTA TV channel repack might be the culprit. Y...

Re: SoCal - lost MANY OTA channels

Go here: Repack Plan (RabbitEars). Select your major market from the drop-down list. It will tell you the old and new RF channel assignments for the stations in your major market. The Phases of the repack are listed over on the right side of the listing. Here is the repack Phase schedule: Transition...

Re: HDHomeRun Mesh WiFi Discovery Issues

Have you tried reserving an IP for the device. I am curious to see what would happen. He mentioned in his OP that he'd tried that. Streaming HDHR across my parents apartment to 3 devices simultaneously over WiFi with 0 complaints. I am hoping to keep things that way. I don't want any phone calls ab...

Re: HDHomeRun Mesh WiFi Discovery Issues

Well in case someone reads this in the distant future... Couldn't find a solution to fix HDHomeRun's LAN address disappearing on fully wireless mesh. So Google's "upper tier of WiFi support" wasn't able to figure it out, either? From the symptoms you've reported I'm sticking with the guess that the...

Re: 5.1 Dolby Digital what device?

Hello, what device will give you 5.1 DD not PCM? Xbox and Appletv seem to do PCM. We're getting 5.1 DD from our Apple TV 4K, but it's rather a moot point if you're talking about using SD's HDHR app, because they don't have one for tvOS. Got 5.1 DD out of our Amazon Fire TV 2nd. Gen., but had to use...

Re: HDHomeRun Mesh WiFi Discovery Issues

To me, this seems like the DHCP server on node #1 is outright refusing to provide a LAN address. I'm assuming this is after the 24-hour honeymoon period, but not before? If so, it increases my confidence that the mesh network is black-holing the HDHR. As such: The DHCP server would not see the HDHR...

Re: HDHomeRun Mesh WiFi Discovery Issues

At this point, Barker, I got nothing else. It seems, to me, like the mesh network is blocking the HDHR device for some reason. Makes no sense, but that sure is what it looks like, based on what you've reported.

Re: HDHomeRun Mesh WiFi Discovery Issues

System status reports the correct LAN IP. And broadcast address? If you have a "flat" network, all devices on all mesh nodes should reflect the same broadcast address and subnet mask. (See below.) Cannot ping, and cannot access the web interface (port 80) from any node besides #2. I presume that w/...

Re: New Mi Box S Pie 9 update

It doesn't appear that they fixed their hardware decoder yet, ...

Re: HDHomeRun Mesh WiFi Discovery Issues

How did you determine "accessibility?" E.g.: Did you try ping 'ing the HDHR's IP address from the other mesh nodes? Can you get to it with a browser either via http://my.hdhomerun.com or via http://ip.add.re.ss/system.html , either from the same mesh node or another? If you can access the page, what...

Re: HDHomeRun Mesh WiFi Discovery Issues

I'll Wireshark on 65001 when I detect the issue again. You'll want to start-up wireshark before the problem manifests itself, to verify you're seeing the broadcasts on the node #2 mesh. Then, either leave it running until the discovery fails or start it up again. (Personally, I'd just leave it runn...

HDHomeRun discovery issues have been confirmed to be present on Windows 10, Android TV 8.0, iOS, and Android 9.0. I can't speak to MS-Win10. Don't use it. But I do have Xiaomi MiBox S' that have run both Android 8 and Android 9, and have experienced no problems with HDHR discovery at all. The exact...

Re: Network issue with finding the HD homerun

I suspect his problem is either his basement device, the device he keeps referring to as his "main router," or both as the problem. SD's tuners use SSDP to facilitate UPNP. SSDP uses multicast to both solicit and advertise services. Normally, multicast packets are not routed. (If it was, the Interne...

Ok, well, since you obviously know more about how this stuff works than I, I'll leave you to it, then. Good luck.
