Re: AC-4 Audio?

That branch is against the main trunk. I compiled a 4.3.x version and Kodi now plays audio for ATSC 3.0 Dallas, TX stations (H.265 + AC-4). I expect it will take a few months for slower distributions to get ffmpeg 4.4 / 5.0 that will carry this support, but we'll be there much sooner than I guessed...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

I compiled this fork of ffmpeg on linux: https://github.com/richardpl/FFmpeg/tree/ac4 I don't think this is in the main trunk for ffmpeg, but this is at least promising. That branch is against the main trunk. I compiled a 4.3.x version and Kodi now plays audio for ATSC 3.0 Dallas, TX stations (H.26...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

I saw that if the device supports DD+ that it should support AC4 as well (no idea how true that is really). Everything I have read from Silicondust says if the device supports Atmos then it should support AC4, see this post for example: https://forum.silicondust.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=133&t=7425...

Re: Looking for the official HDHomeRun add-on for Kodi?

Understandable. I'm still getting used to the PVR interface, but the Python add-on interface had its charm and I was used to it as a multi-year user of it. If you don't mind posting it in a read-only state with a note about support being discontinued that would be great. I have an old fork of it, bu...

Re: Looking for the official HDHomeRun add-on for Kodi?

Was this due to the switch to Python 3 with Kodi 19? That was the only change I know of as the add-on works for me. I submitted a PR to support Python 3 to Github, but it removed support for Python 2. I just tried out the PVR add-on and it seems to replicate the same functionality so I don't see muc...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

I wonder how much Dolby paid the ATSC group and/or broadcasters to force AC-4. There was no reason to use a new codec when there's a million of them out there. The best one is FOSS and Royalty-Free - Opus.

ATSC3/October code for hdhomerun_config and GUI

Are there any plans to publish the 202010** releases of libhomerun / hdhomerun_config_gui for Linux?

Are there any plans to publish the GUI code base into something more modern such as your Git Hub repo?
