I have a 2011 Macbook Air :cry:

VLC plays 1080i from HDHR at 75% cpu usage.

Mac (App release pending)
Intel CPU: The Settings menu has an option to set the video quality. High quality 1080i to 1080p60 conversion requires significant CPU performance and will not work on all Intel Mac models.
Can we just leave the video alone as-is?

Re: LG app issues

This is not a design philosophy, this is a limitation of the LG platform. The LG video player does not understand how to seek on a video that has no set end time (live streaming), and disables those functions when there is no end time. Now I know why the app sucks. ;) Maybe LG could fix their playe...

Re: LG app issues

I think SD philosophy is you shouldn't watch live TV. Record first and then watch. All decisions around the user interface seem to indicate that.

Re: PoE

100Mbps uses only 4 out of 8 wires. Power injector on one end, power splitter on the other. What seems to be the problem? It is true that some pre-standard solutions used those extra wires. It was a fiasco (because some used 12v, some used 24v, some used 48v, etc. and devices could (and were) brick...

Re: 2017 LGTV Can't find DVR/Recordings

It seems LG put a cap on how many hosts are scanned by the TV. I was expecting the TV would be scanning the entire /8 but it "only" scans the first /24. I think they are trying to fly under the radar ;) The HDHomeRun app doesn't scan unicast IP addresses. Is there some LG feature unrelated to the H...

Re: 2017 LGTV Can't find DVR/Recordings

LG uses multicast for discovery. Most other platforms use 255.255.255.255 broadcast or subnet broadcast. Same discovery protocol. Using a /8 is fine. We use a /16 for engineering internally. It seems LG put a cap on how many hosts are scanned by the TV. I was expecting the TV would be scanning the ...

Tell us more.

I am planning on putting my LG on its own 10.0.0.0/8. Wonder what it will do to the TV ;)

Re: Channel 305 Comcast Houston Texas

I wonder why the companies providing TV guide info do not provide a direct contact and instead a vendor needs to be pestered.

That won't be an issue for a closed circuit system, which is what that modulator is meant to be used with.
Can HDHR tuner even tune to this channel?
Why wouldn't it be able to?
OK. No more questions. ;)
