Re: Xfinity Activation from Ebay

eBay has excellent buyer protection. Inform the seller you require them to resolve this issue immediately or issue you a shipping label and, upon receipt of the item, a full refund--incl. any shipping charges. If they balk: File a complaint with eBay that the item is Significantly Not As Described. ...

Re: Jittery and pixelated video

For starters: Is this happening on all channels, or just some? Have you examined the properties of the signals involved, using HDHomeRun Config GUI, the tuner status web page, or one of the mobile device apps that are available? If it's happening on all channels, and the stats look good for them (e....

I know you guys killed the service but there's literally no mention of it anywhere..
Why would there be mention of, or a place to discuss, a service that, in another ±2 days, no longer exists?

Re: Did I miss the New Firmware announcement ?

They still haven't fixed the download links on the Linux page yet. I had to guess at what the download URL should be to get the .bin files. It's the same every time. Silicon Dust wants to be in charge of your tuner and entire viewing experience/ecosystem; the problem with this is that it makes it w...

Re: How To Get 20190410beta1 For Update With Linux HDHomeRun Config GUI?

Update This happened when I did the update: https://www.linxnet.com/misc/images/Home_Theater/HDHR_Update_Error.png despite the fact it would appear it actually did update. Unfortunately, I can't tell if the update actually fixes the problem here, because it's blowing like stink outside, and that giv...

Re: OTA station has pixelation with 100% signal

Looks like WWJ-TV, Channel 62 in Detroit, is doing it again. Neither the TV nor the Channel Master DVR+, whether on the same antenna or on a Winegard FlatWave Amped, exhibit any problems.

I've submitted a trouble ticket requesting the Beta firmware for our CONNECT Quatro.

Re: No IPv6 compatibility?

IPv6 has been around for many years (it was formalised in 1998), ... And it's been a roaring PITA ever since the IETF threw that over-designed, everything- and -the-kitchen-sink spec over the wall. My feeling about IPv6 is that, unless you have a real need for it, or are a masochist, it's best to a...

Re: Signal strong enough?

ACraigo, I have more than a little experience with antenna and transmission line theory and design, myself. I, too, have designed and fabricated my own antennas. So, like you, I, too, was sceptical of the googly-eyed antenna. Thing is, though: A buddy of mine has one of those on his cabin-top out in...

Re: How to transmit wifi to non-smart TV's?

... I'd already been burned by the MiBox 3 and wasn't going to take another chance on one. It's in my junk drawer now, getting ready for spring cleaning. Both of our MiBox 3's have been replaced by Xiaomi with MiBox S'. The first one bricked itself so badly it wouldn't even display the splash scree...

If they also turn off the tuner, that is a power to a few thousand homes saved right there. If they can sleep the entire device, that is a power plant saved.

Re: OTA station has pixelation with 100% signal

Thanks for keeping on top of this, Jason!

I never filed a ticket for WWJ-TV because, about a week after the problem last re-appeared, it somehow resolved itself. *shrug*
