Re: Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

Can you please try the new 20210303beta1 release. This upgrades both the HDHomeRun firmware and the record engine. Nick Hey Nick, I installed it last night and tested against the condition where I was able to get it buffering and there were no issues. I noticed one tiny image tear this morning in a...

Re: Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

Nick - thank you for you and your team's time to help troubleshoot - I greatly appreciate the efforts. It's working now but nothing conclusive that I could gain from the support session as to why. I will continue running the 0301 and later updates and will reply back here if I encounter any more iss...

Re: Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

Hey Nick - sure! I can multitask a bit now while I am working and can be available after 5p mountain time. I will keep this browser window open for instructions Edit: you mention chunk sizes and remembered that the PVR settings allow those to be set. Right now I have it on Automatic but I can set an...

Re: Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

Interesting. I did not have any issues creating the RAID sets. I formatted everything as MacOS Extended (Jounaled) though. The computer is very stable and hasn't crashed ever. Also I am not watching TV on that computer so all streams are accessed over the network. Everything works fine with the 0210...

Re: Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

Thanks a bunch Nick I really appreciate that you're looking into this particular situation! I am feeling very much like a valued customer! :) So I did the tests. I installed the 0301 record and played back a ~10Mb 1080i stream. Ran it for about a minute and that seemed to work OK even without the Se...

Re: Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

Double checking - are the MyBook drives connected via USB? I don't think that is the problem. Correct, they are USB 3 and local read / write performance is excellent. How are you combining the two RAID sets into one volume? I used Apple Disk Utility to set them up. Also what is the Device ID of you...

Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

I would like to report an issue I'm experiencing with the 20210227 MacOS record engine where live channels are buffering. I rolled back the record engine to 20210210 which resolves the issue. I don't think this was happening in the 20210224 release but I know it everything was working fine with the ...
