Re: Windows 10 Live Playback Issue

Thanks for the driver suggestion. This machine has only one video card. It is an ATI card, I have updated these drivers several times since I started having this problem. I am running the latest Beta now, but driver updates have had no impact for me.

I do appreciate you taking the time to reply.

Re: Windows 10 Live Playback Issue

@NedS I did the test for all three of my HDHRs. I let it run for 5 full lines. I got nothing but dots "." Something else I can try? I think this could be a problem with he client talking to my HDHR record machine. This one is the application on my Synology NAS. When running the low level packet loss...

Re: Time shifting stops at recording time end

Thanks for the reply. But I was hoping to see whether others were seeing this. I mainly use a setup using the Client on the Nvidia Shield 2019 Pro and record engine running on a Synology NAS (Ds918+). Both are on the latest updates. (20210404beta1 on the Synology, 20210225 client on the Shield). Tho...

Re: Windows 10 Live Playback Issue

@NedS, I am still getting the errors "most" of the time on my Win 10 desktop. Often I have to clear the error numerous times and/or restart the program to finally get to where I can watch live TV. On some occasions the client just goes to a black screen with "Unable to play channels:" in bold white ...

Time shifting stops at recording time end

Maybe the title is confusing, let me explain. An example: A recoding starts at 7:00 PM and runs until 8:00 PM. I start playback from the beginning at 7:30 PM. I skip commercials and everything is fine. When the recoding stop time is reached video playback is also stopped regardless of where I am in ...

Re: 4K Content - Broadcasts Yet?

This is just an opinion, keep that in mind. I have no inside info. But BTW, I am in Denver as well. I think that we will not see 4K, HDR, nor any of the advanced features of ATSC 3 until the lighthouse phase of the roll out is over. This means a minimum of 5 years. With the sharing of bandwidth avai...

Re: Win 10 client can't see Synology Record engine

I set the Windows client to send diagnostic information. Can someone at SD look at it, please?
If more data is needed, do let me know. I would like to get this going. I am happy to take an active part in troubleshooting,

Win 10 client can't see Synology Record engine

This is a peculiar problem. I have been using a Synology DS918+ for over a year to run the HDHR record engine. Everything has worked fine. It runs the 20200907 version of the software. I believe that this is current for that system. I also have two Nvidia Shields running record engines. Long story, ...

Re: Windows 10 Live Playback Issue

Using the 20210102 client on Win 10 20H2 things now seem to be working fine. I can get all TV channels and change channels without freezing or crashing. Even ATSC 3 channels are working. The only change was updating the client to the 0102 level. BTW the UI rev is 20201230. I do have early access to ...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

After the recent changes the HDHomeRun app on my NVidia Shield Pro (2020) now feeds sound to my Atmos capable Denon X3600H. Progress! However, after watching either Phoenix's 15.1 or 61.1 video and sound become a little jerky - short hesitations. It's like something is not quite able to keep up... ...

Re: Windows 10 Live Playback Issue

I need to do some more testing, but I think I solved my problem. I upgraded the PC from 1909 to the latest 20H2 feature upgrade. So far the problem with the Windows client freezing and throwing the MF_Media_Engine errors has not happened. EDIT : This is not the case. I am back to not being able to u...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Wrong. Atmos is a metadata extension to AC-3 and AC-4. It's not audio data. "Atmos" is not a standard of audio - it is not AC-4. I wish Nick would stop using Atmos in this way. "DD" is AC-3 - and can contain Atmos data "DD+" is a minor update to AC-3 with support for more bitrates. It's also known ...

Re: Windows 10 Live Playback Issue

Just as a follow-up with a bit of new data: I just updated to the Version 20201214 (APP)/20201216b(UI). I also updated the AMD drivers a day ago. Still having the problem. MF_MEDIA_ENGINE_ERR_DECODE : HRESULT - 0xC00D36F2 error window popup. I close the window and get a black screen with "Unable to ...
