Re: Channels Apps Are Now Free for DVR Subscribers

Channels doesn't seem capable of streaming the same channel to multiple devices without using another tuner. In the Channels App(s) go to DVR and enable Tuner Sharing. There are lots of little things like that - and it's what you pay for (the Channels Guys need to eat occasionally, I would imagine ...

Re: Channels Apps Are Now Free for DVR Subscribers

I don’t see the value in the price. There are many other solutions that cost a lot less and many are free. I record something once in a blue moon so there is no value in paying that much. I’m happy you see the value in paying that much. You don't need a DVR, but if you like the way Channels works f...

Re: Channels Apps Are Now Free for DVR Subscribers

I purchased this app and it looks really nice. Works well but the DVR pricing is ridiculous. I can rent a DVR from the cable company for less so I decided to return it for a refund. This is the kind of app SD needs. The HDhomerun app is just terrible and hasn't changed much in years. I don't unders...

Re: Tuner confusion

I have the Homerun Duo, if I record a program lets say for 3 mins (testing) and then stop/delete said recording it does not release the tuner back until the program stops airing, then if I want to change channel I get "Unable to play channel All tuners in Use" - I'm not sure if this by design but v...

Re: The This Old House Hour recording same "new" episode multiple times

Can't you just go into your tuner setup and remove that SD channel?
Then what about all those shows that only run on the SD Channel?
No Soup For Them?
The work-around murders the patient - but the bug is killed.
Success! (no, not really)

Re: The This Old House Hour recording same "new" episode multiple times

MCEBuddy simply lets you choose a folder for it to watch. It then can run conversion tasks and then you choose where the file is saved to. I've had it setup this way since when I used MCE. I think there were other reasons that I kept it this way, but I can't remember. I think mostly to keep things ...

Re: The This Old House Hour recording same "new" episode multiple times

The record engine will typically select one of the multiple options.
Unfortunately - very often - the wrong one (because 'the user' has no control over the operation - unless they want to hack up a work-around for something that WMC did instantly and perfectly).

Re: The This Old House Hour recording same "new" episode multiple times

It's a common occurrence for just about anything post WMC... and good luck getting anyone to believe there's actually a problem with the way they can't make that work right.

I solve that problem with...

Re: Ignore Movies folder in Plex ?

LMAO … I wouldn't have to use Plex if the HDHomerun had a way for diff users to keep their watch status. That is also what I hate about Channels DVR. Agreed. lol All I know is Plex Employees and Ninjas alike ALWAYS tell folks NOT to do what you're doing, and if you continue don't be surprised when ...

Re: Ignore Movies folder in Plex ?

Just wait until one of those Plex Employees (working from a feces stained Yurt somewhere in what is commonly known as a boil on the pucker-string of the Earth) 'retrogrades' Plex to a previous state (about 2 weeks ago) and dynamic storage (like your DVR storage) throws Plex into a tailspin, the wing...

Re: Signal strong enough?

Wind can kinda blow through the back screen, but when you add the back screen and those big surface areas in the google-eyes - you got wind loading. Way more than a traditional design and one that will out-perform it easily. I know why the google-eye are wide plates and not the traditional element a...

Re: Signal strong enough?

Antennas Direct ClearStream 2V is a piece of junk. A $100 piece of junk to boot. What's wrong with the C2V? I've found it to be a perfectly reasonable midsize antenna for areas with adequate UHF and good VHF signals. Yes, it lacks directionality on VHF, and the dipole is sized for channel 7 so it f...
