Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Happy Easter!

Now that the high-priority work around the ATSC 3.0 tuner seems to be complete, any news on the HDHR DVR front?

Re: Harmony 1 Remote / HDHomeRun / NVidia Shield TV

gab - Thanks for the link. I read the entire thread. I guess from what I understand, what I have now for remote commands is pretty much all I can do. I've added a bluetooth keyboard which helps, but the whole setup is clunky. Yeah, I think that a lot of us are looking forward to getting better remo...

Re: Harmony 1 Remote / HDHomeRun / NVidia Shield TV

Is there a way to make better use of the keys on the Harmony 1 Remote to control HDHomeRun on the Nvidia Shield TV. I am using the FLIRC IR adapter on the Shield TV. I would like to map the number keys to select channels, the guide key to the guide, etc. Right now there only seem to be a few keys I...

Re: Software Update 20210210 Issues - Gripweed256

The firmware changelog is at https://www.silicondust.com/support/downloads/firmware-changelog/ It looks like one of the changes listed could be linked to your issue: "CC models: Faster channel scan on cable systems with SDV (with or without tuning resolver connected)." I am going to wait until you r...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

We have some ATSC 3.0 features that need to be completed and released before we can get this on the development schedule. [...] We release UI features and improvements regularly. The DVR isn't a release-and-done project but a long term ongoing investment. nickk Thank you very much for those explana...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

And yet that's the only practical option that Microsoft gives us. Happy New Year NedS We have established that this is not quite true on Windows 10. You could also write a Desktop Extension that calls RegisterRawInputDevices() and package it with your UWP app so that it forwards the messages to it....

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Keyboards work. Not tracking any issues with keyboard handling. I meant can we at least get the shortcuts listed at https://forum.silicondust.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=366697#p366697 ? It seems to me that all of them could pretty much be implemented and tested within a couple of days if you wanted ...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Happy New Year!

So, what improvement in HDHR DVR can we look forward to in 2021?

Can we at least expect proper keyboard support?

Thanks!

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Looking back at my observations back from January on the Xbox One (https://forum.silicondust.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=355420#p355420), I notice that the Channel Up/Down behavior has apparently improved, but I still do not like it. The current behavior on Xbox One is: when one presses Channel Up/Dow...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

If you enable "early access to new features" in the app the number buttons on the remote should now work on XBox One. Nick Thanks! Somehow, while you had mentioned in the past that number buttons were problematic on XBox One, we do not recall ever having any issue with them. I just double-checked w...

Fair enough. Let's get back to the topics of WMC keyboard bindings and support for MCE remotes on Windows 10 using a Desktop Extension. Any ETA on the former and/or the later? Thanks!

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Ok, I'm going to beat the dead horse. A grid guide is what is keeping me from switching over to the DVR from Silicon Dust. I did just buy a Plex Pass for local OTA TV, just wish they would have DCM channels. A grid guide would be great. I assume that everybody would rather have a grid guide instead...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

A third party helper app already exists: https://www.howtogeek.com/247332/how-to-control-any-software-in-windows-with-your-mce-remote/ The third-party helper would indeed work, but users would have to download it, and then map the MCE remote buttons to the keybindings. It would be good, much better...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Also, I'm 100% all for using the keybindings mentioned for being able to go directly to various parts of the HDHR app. Using the Kodi keymap is a great idea. Whatever we come up with should, in theory, be cross platform, as an added bonus. Great. The Kodi keymap is apparently the same as the Window...
