Re: Followup 1: Any recourse? Back to stone age. Everything DRM now

Good advice from the forum. Here is the latest. I followed up with a couple of my local broadcast channels and received the following (emphasis mine): "I am sorry that you have been experiencing trouble recording our programming via your DVR. We do not incorporate any DRM, and our programs are full...

Re: Let us choose what channels we want

I ask the SiliconDust team to offer us the ability to choose what channels we want, and only pay for those. That's part of the reason I gave up cable to begin with; the forced bundling. For example, I have zero interest in sports, and do not want to pay for those channels. I will never watch them, ...

Re: Network Regional Feeds

That just wouldn’t make good business sense for a company whose main focus is on Over The Air broadcast home distribution, (At this point, they do not even sell a CableCard tuner, although they are promoting a 6 tuner CableCard tuner available in 2019).

Re: Shield Experience 7.2 ...

I prefer the FireTV 4K since they just fixed hardware decoding... I like the Interface better it shows everything I watch in 1 Place... The only thing the Shield has on it is DRM... Plus it does not have the problem of my surround sound going in and out like on the Shield when I skip … the FireTV d...

Re: Seeking DRM capable box recommendations

I bought my HDHomeRun Prime earlier this year with the plan of being able to get the bulky STB off my kitchen counter and just hang a FireTV Stick off the back of the TV. That mostly works... accept for DRM channels that I really miss having there. Based on other forum topics I've read here, I've c...

Re: HDHR DVR - EMBY VS PLEX

Another thing to consider,.....if you use Closed Captioning when watching Live TV, or, when watching a DVR recording of Live TV, you might not want to select Plex. I really don't understand what the issue is, but, Plex media Player doesn't support Closed Captioning on Live TV, and, although the TS f...

Re: Amazon Recast no threat to HDHomerun

SD = Geeks Amazon = Non Geeks. The problem for SD is no one other than geeks know who they are. SD needs to get the word out and make it easier to get their system going. At thanksgiving everyone asks what everyone else has been up to over the past year. Trying to explain hdhome to them is a lost c...

Re: Amazon Recast no threat to HDHomerun

The only thing I could like about Recast, is it seems easy enough that I won't have to take calls from elderly relatives/friends to come fix it. I set it up for a relative this weekend, it could not have been easier. If she didn't already have a FireTV stick setup, it may have taken longer. The new ...

Re: Jetstream 4K Ultra

Interesting. I loaded Live Channels on my Jetstream, and all arrow movements within LC are responsive and fluid. It appears to only be an issue in the HDHR app itself. It even takes about 2 to 3 seconds for the channel slices menu to pop out from the time I push either the up or down button on the ...

Re: Lineup Requests for Premium TV

I agree that the channels are, as-is, pretty good. There's never going to be a perfect mix that suits everyone. I do really like the idea of add-on packs. Choice is good! I still think BBC America is one of the most popular, common-channel omissions. That's the only "notable" missing channel for my...

Re: Stage 2?

Yes, that is on of the things I find weird is that Omniverse is the provider but we all saw that DirecTV screen saver that day. Why would they source their stream from DirecTV and not directly from the program providers satellite feed (i.e. ESPN, CNN, etc.)? I know for a fact that cable companies d...

Re: Stage 2?

Channel numbers are just a mapping. The (Comcast) MCLU is as good of a mapping as any other, and arguably is a better designed mapping for the long term (grouping potentially like channels together) than some other (more randomly assigned) ones. But it is just a mapping. True, but who else could it...
