Re: HDHomeRun F/W 20200225 - Windows Media Center very slow to find tuner

@jasonl,

Now that it indeed looks like a regression cause by the last firmware, could we please get an update that rolls back the changes in 20200225 since we cannot rollback to an older version ourselves? Or do you think you may have a real fix in the near future?

Thank you.

Re: HDHomeRun F/W 20200225 - Windows Media Center very slow to find tuner

Here is another observation I made. This happens only after the WMC PC has gone to sleep or rebooting. I turned off sleep and it keeps detecting the tuner just fine - even on the next day. However, that's really not a good long-term solution as it wastes energy and heats up the cabinet it's in non-s...

Re: HDHomeRun F/W 20200225 - Windows Media Center very slow to find tuner

This morning I tried to restart the Media Center Receiver service to trigger the connection to the tuner - didn't work. Clicking Apply in the HDHR Setup software didn't work either. HDHR viewer worked though. So I rebooted the PC and tried tuning in a channel again. I let it sit and after ~5 minutes...

Re: HDHomeRun F/W 20200225 - Windows Media Center very slow to find tuner

Well, apparently launching the HDHomeRun viewer to wake up the tuner was just a coincidence. The only reliable way for me to make the initial connection is by clicking Apply in the HDHomeRun Setup. After that it works fine unless the tuner hasn't been used for several hours, such as overnight. FYI, ...

Re: HDHomeRun F/W 20200225 - Windows Media Center very slow to find tuner

Yes, you're right @jasonl. I can confirm that the BDA setting had nothing to do with it as WMC was unable to connect to the tuner again this morning. This time I simply launched the HDHomeRun viewer, which woke up the tuner (no WMC receiver service restart involved here I would think). And after tha...

Re: HDHomeRun F/W 20200225 - Windows Media Center very slow to find tuner

And out of desperation I tried setting the BDA Compatibility Mode to "Default" instead of "Media Center" and guess what, Media Center found the tuner immediately. And the black screen on the HDHomeRun viewer turned out to be a display driver problem. Of course, I again don't know how long this will ...

Re: HDHomeRun F/W 20200225 - Windows Media Center very slow to find tuner

Still the same problem. The Prime doesn't show up with the other devices in the Network node of File Explorer like it used to - neither on my Windows 7 Media Center nor on a Windows 10 laptop. The router sees it just fine, and I even gave it a static IP address hoping that it would speed up discover...

Re: HDHomeRun F/W 20200225 - Windows Media Center very slow to find tuner

I tried turning on live TV again after work and the tuner wouldn't activate at all. I rebooted the tuner, the PC and the Orbi it's connected to (all via lan not wifi) but it didn't help. Then I ran the Hdhomerun Windows software installer again and ran Repair. Still no luck. Hdhomerun viewer isn't e...

HDHomeRun F/W 20200225 - Windows Media Center very slow to find tuner

I updated my HDHomeRun Prime firmware from last years to the current 20200225 a few days ago through the device's web interface. Ever since then I have been having trouble getting accessing my tuners from WMC if the tuners have been off for a while. FYI, nothing else has changed with the PC or my ne...
