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...

Now getting live tv with audio and awesome dvr on ROku with my HDHR Extend. The shortcomings of Plex-DVR will become pain...

Re: Why switch from Media Center to SD DVR?

Basically, I am asking "Why should I switch?" If you have to ask that question - the answer is: you shouldn't. WMC also works on Win 10, but you have to leap through a few flaming hoops and apart from being slightly singed when the event is complete you end up with a working WMC you can go on using...

Re: kind of off topic -- USB streaming stick suggestions

Only one outlet near TV and too many kitchen 'gadgets'. Even the multiplier may not help. Old 1950s house - I would be afraid to use one. :lol: I ran across a USB to micro power cable for Roku USB stick or Fire Stick on Amazon by accident. I really don't care for the UI on any of these but since I ...

Re: kind of off topic -- USB streaming stick suggestions

The Electrician in me has to ask - where are you plugging the TV in? A Rube Goldberg Super Plug Multiplier and Spark Generator won't work in there somewhere? https://www.amazon.com/Ideaworks-Outlet-Multiplier-only-outlet/dp/B00IU2B9NM At one time Roku offered a stick that ran off an MDL port and got...

Re: HDHomeRun Mux Question

The HDHR output file is going to be a Transport Stream - filename.ts What's in the .ts container depends on your unit. Some units can convert the MPEG-2 video stream you'll get for OTA stations to H.264, but the container is, I think, still going to be a .ts file. If the .ts file is the holdup, MCEB...

Re: Still hung up on font size

The HDHomeRun app is a 10-foot UI. If you have a 50" TV and you are sitting 10 feet away it doesn't matter if it is 720p or 4k - fonts still need to be sized large enough to be readable. We have a sofa set up at the office with distances marked out - we can move the sofa and can swap out different ...

Wouldn't it be more helpful if you had a support ticket open and sent an email to them referencing the ticket everytime instead of posting in this forum?
Depends on who it helps.

The best way to deal with something buggy is to drag it out into the light.
