Re: I miss last channel button ...

I would love a double-play-press to be last channel, too!

Re: Cheapest option to broadcast live TV outside home

Which version is the last one that works for free?
embyserver-win-x64-3.5.3.0 as far as I know. You should be able to find it with an internet search.

Re: Cheapest option to broadcast live TV outside home

FYI, Emby stopped supporting live TV in their free offering a few months ago. I found an old version and disabled auto-update so I could get live channels should I ever need them (though I virtually never use it). Unless you have an HDHomeRun Extend, you'll need something powerful enough to transcod...

Re: List of all network port numbers needed to view TV?

If your router does UDP broadcast forwarding, you might be able to forward the discover packets to your HDHR. Otherwise you could give them the direct URL to your channel lineup (http://x.x.x.x/lineup.html), and they'll have to figure out how to make use of the individual URLs of the stations. I can...

Re: Guide not keeping up to date - going stagnant

I used to have that happen a few times (months ago) when I left it playing for an extended time (like overnight). Now we usually at least back out to the recording menu so it isn't using the disk 24x7 anyway.

Re: The HDHomeRun Scribe Duo has been nominated for a Best of CES Award

Given a CES where there was a lot of talk about a hamburger and an alarm clock, the Scribe is reasonably competitive for an award. :D

Re: intrest poll

If I didn't have anything, maybe the Scribe might be of interest...but still probably not. I use Kodi a lot for watching movies, and even use it sometimes for watching HDHomeRun recordings (closed captions play so much better). I wouldn't want a separate box for Kodi. The ability to copy files to a ...

Re: DVR: first impression....

If you don't watch all those PBS channels for anything else, you could hide all but one of them on the tuner.

Re: HDHRUtil utilities - A few useful (python3) scripts for those using the HDHR ecosystem

all i need is the sekrit incantation to program hdhr...so where's the api? The API is described here: https://github.com/Silicondust/documentation/wiki/DVR-Recording-Rules I wrote some simple Python 2 scripts to do that sort of thing here that you can use as examples: https://github.com/blainebauer...

Re: Some of us are actually happy

We're mostly happy with it. The DVR works OK. We just use a few channels on OTA so the lack of a grid doesn't bother us much.

All product forums are mostly full of complaints; people don't generally post when things are well.

Python & Windows scripts for HDHR DVR recordings

I've put together a few small Python scripts to play with the HDHR DVR API. These allow you to do most things via command line. *WARNING* - some of these scripts can add or delete recordings. While I've never had any accidental deletions, I do not guarantee you won't (though if you start with the "t...

Re: Grid Guide

It's certainly not the most convenient thing, but TitanTV provides a good grid guide and you can configure favorites. It can show what is on a specific channel for three days at a time. It just isn't connected to the DVR at all, so if you find something you want to record you'll have to go to HDHR a...

Re: Channels Apps Are Now Free for DVR Subscribers

Can I stop paying the $8 month to channels and pay the $30 year to HDHomerun DVR and still use channels DVR?
No, but Channels has an annual rate so you can save a little money with an $80/year rate.
