Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

I tested Channels DVR using my Comcast login to configure a "TV Everywhere" source and I forced myself to use it instead of my PRIME 3 CableCard source just to see what the differences would be. I couldn't get locals with TV Everywhere as a source and I don't live in a L****t market, but this wasn't...

Re: Antennae Recommendation?

You may want to check one of these sites. They will not only recommend antennas, they will also let you know where to aim and whether your channels are VHF, UHF or a mix of the two:

Re: New orders

Does Tablo compress what it records? With Channels DVR and Plex, they save the raw stream from the HDHomeRun, so it's about as good as it gets (MPEG2 for ATSC 1.0 and HVEC for ATSC 3.0.)

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

I was watching an auction on eBay for one of the old HDHR3-6CC-3X2 6-tuner products (a rack mount device with two of the 3-tuner boards inside) and it ended way out of my price range at $370. If that is any indication, there is still a market for these CableCard devices.

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

This is speculative, but after reading through these forums I suspect that they had every intention of releasing the PRIME 6 and that it's probably even ready for production, but they never got CableLabs certification for the device.

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

A new 3D printable enclosure would be nice. I cracked open my existing PRIME 3 to see how wide the circuit board was and it looks like the guts would fit in a double-wide version of the existing style of case that all the other products use. The newer style is more convenient because then you can st...

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

I concur. It'd be cleaner in my setup if it matched the current devices like my QUATRO (and the QUATRO 4K I will buy once people who missed the Kickstarter can buy it.)

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

So, is the 3-tuner model being re-released, maybe in a new form factor?

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

I would still buy a 6-tuner PRIME if it is ever released, but I will say that "Channels DVR" and its support for "TV Everywhere" does solve a lot of use-cases that a CableCard-enabled 3rd party product like TiVo previously fulfilled. This includes archiving your content, which is actually easier wit...
