Re: What happens to the broadcast stream when it's captured via HDHR, Plex, Emby?

Ah, ok, so it's essentially the original stream with a bit of added metadata, but no transcoding or anything. I presume HD live streams are similar then

Re: Fire Stick 4k

Ah, ok. They may not be aware. I don't suppose you guys are able to share your info with the Plex devs so they can try to do similar? The main reason for me getting the HDHR was to use it with my Plex setup and it's really frustrating having to individually reencode loads of videos to get them to pl...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

Do you have the latest HDHomeRun app version installed? It blocks the broken decoder from being used. Hi Jason. Yes, I am on the latest HDHR app. I have just tried it and it does now work fine for the HD channels, both playback and recordings, although it doesn't seem quite a smooth as normal. Than...

What happens to the broadcast stream when it's captured via HDHR, Plex, Emby?

Hi guys When I record something with HDHR, what is the process involved? I can see that when I tune to a channel it shows in the Live TV folder on my NAS, but is that the original broadcast file, or is HDHR doing something in the process before it gets there? And when I record via Plex or Emby using...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

I'm on version 6.2.6.5 but I'm still having the same problems in the UK with HD channels and recordings from those channels. Just crashes the app. Really annoying that it's still not been resolved. This thing can play large x264 file and 4k stuff but struggles with mpeg recordings. Pffft!

Re: Need help getting HDHR recording to my QNap NAS please

Ah, great, thanks. That post has a section " Transitioning from Silicondust NAS Installer to QPKG " which was the problem I had. I've followed the instructions and it looks like it now has the new path on the QNap. Yey! :) Ignore my request about moving the config file, btw, I misread it's path and ...

Re: Need help getting HDHR recording to my QNap NAS please

OK, so I shutdown the Synology NAS and rebooted the HDHR, then started to record a TV show. It's now recording to the QNap, but to the default HDHR folder, not the new one I have changed it to in the QNAP HDHomeRun DVR Manager. I notice that when I try to stop or restart the DVR engine in that manag...

Re: Need help getting HDHR recording to my QNap NAS please

So will this override changes in the actual HDHomerun and make it now record on the QNap? Or do I still need to tell the HDHomerun to use the QNap instead of the Synology using the Windows setup program? Hmmm, no. I'd set it to record the Apprentice and it's recording to the Synology. How to I get ...

Re: Need help getting HDHR recording to my QNap NAS please

Ah, got it, http://192.168.0.51/HDHomeRunDVR/#on mine, great, thanks. So I stopped the DVR engine, changed the path and restarted it? Is there any way of moving the config file to the other folder as well, or do I need to keep the default HDHomeRunDVR folder in place? It gave me errors with the defa...

Re: Need help getting HDHR recording to my QNap NAS please

I still can't get that HDHomerunDVR app to work on the QNap. It says it's running in the QNap app centre but it just gives me a blank window when I try to connect to it, and then eventually says cannot connect

Re: Need help getting HDHR recording to my QNap NAS please

Yep, that's done it. Bozo! I'd even seen that setting ages ago that but thought I had it set correctly! Can it only record to the HDHomerun folder btw? Is there any way to change it to another share on the QNap, such as TV Recordings, or a sub-folder of a share (I have Emby and Plex reocrdings going...

Re: Need help getting HDHR recording to my QNap NAS please

Doh! Got it. That was linked to the problem, my router has filtering multicast packets. Unticked and now QNap and other upnp devices are showing up. I'll try again

Re: Need help getting HDHR recording to my QNap NAS please

What's the device ID for your HDHomeRun? Hi Jason, my ID is 12501498, thanks My suggestion is to use demonrik's package and go directly to it not from any qnap app. For the nas install from windows you must create share named HDHomeRun and for it (the installer) to discover the nas, you typically n...

Need help getting HDHR recording to my QNap NAS please

Hi guys I'm struggling to get my HDHR to record to my NAS. I have tried using the WIndows setup to tell it to record to the QNAP, but when I use the NAS install option it won't find the QNap on my home network, only my router and my older Synology backup NAS (which it will happily record to). I've a...
