Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

Roku's video player is not tolerant of any kind of variance in the data in the broadcast from what it expects... ... This has been reported to Roku by us and other developers, but we have no indication of if or when they will change the player. 1) I can attest to that - when the PBS transmitter (th...

Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

latest version of the app does not play anything. i've tried uninstalling, rebooting roku, re-installing, but to no avail. If your unit doesn't decode MPEG-2 and you're trying to play it - that will be the result. Is there a switch in the Roku Settings to turn that on? Not on my Ultra, but it does ...

Re: Love to see a Premium TV Replacement

Looks like the Loveland/Fort Collins area here in Colorado is moving toward a locally run Fiber Internet service (Yeah!). Unfortunately that means deciding what to do with TV if I drop my current cable provider. As such, I was wondering if there are any plans to "Re-Imagine" Premium TV at a future ...

Do those need to be outside to work?
Within 5 miles of the transmitter - perhaps not.
In excess of 5 miles - absolutely.
In excess of 20 miles - get a 'regular', 'old fashioned' antenna.

50% is right on the cusp of blackness.
Above 65% I would consider 'Operational'.

Re: HDR-Homerun Signal Meter--Where is it?

The last Mac version that included it was 20180817, which can be downloaded from https://download.silicondust.com/hdhomerun/hdhomerun_mac_20180817.dmg . There was never an official app for Android or iOS. No, I guess not, but the (Free) app that does work for the purpose - on my Android Phone (deve...

Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

The shortcomings of Plex-DVR will become painfully apparent - very soon. I'll be sure to let you know if/when I experience any shortcomings. On the other hand, it solves my Roku audio problem without having to expend any $ on a new TV. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Don't let me know. You can just join one of the hundr...

Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

4. Route my HDHR through Plex, which will "fix" the audio issue on Roku FWIIW: I broke out the Lifetime Plex Pass I bought a few years back and never used. I made a Plex Server. Now getting live tv with audio and awesome dvr on ROku with my HDHR Extend. The shortcomings of Plex-DVR will become pain...

Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

...The same configuration works with Amazon FireStick - video and audio - does Firestick decode audio differently? Fire TV/Stick handles AC3 - Roku Does Not: https://developer.amazon.com/docs/fire-tv/device-specifications.html Would HDMI Audio extractor fix the issue? Not sure how that would help -...

Re: EyeTV dead for me

Channels DVR: 80 each year (never ending, also no demo version) The first month is free - if that 'Demo' period didn't work out - cancel. Of course, there's always the *possibility that HDHR will completely change course in a magnum overhaul of everything they hold dear. (*slight, but possible. See...

Re: EyeTV dead for me

I fully agree with @name99. Wat we need is a smart recording system and not one for live viewing. So either something like EyeTV (great product, lousy developer) or TVHeadend. Only presently available product that does that is TV-Mosaic. Very good developer, quick replies but the product is (compar...

Re: Subtitles

Must be from another country? To me subtitles and CC are the same thing. CC are closed captions and are encoded in the video data stream itself. Subtitles are DVB subtitles, which are transmitted as a separate stream alongside the video and different audio streams. They are two different technologi...

Re: Subtitles

Must be from another country? To me subtitles and CC are the same thing. I'm from WV and it is rare that we'd need English Subtitles for English audio tracks (maybe for a show shot in California), but for 'we-uns' we hit the button that says "CC" and words start showing up on the bottom of the scre...
