Re: BOTH HDHomeRuns stopped working today

Have you tried reconnecting them to known good ports on the switch? It's not outside of the realm of possibility to have multiple ports on a switch go bad simultaneously. Other than perhaps a power surge or some such event that may have affected both of your HDHomeRuns at the same time I agree it wo...

Re: Feedback request - recorded filename extension

In order of preference: Option 1, Option 2, Option 3 (ironically enough) Option 1: Although .mpg might not be as accurate of a file extension as .ts is for what is being recorded, I've never personally had any reason to rename one in order to use it with a third party application. Don't break what a...

Re: Questions on DVR behavior

You can specify a one-time-recording (exact channel + timeslot in the guide). A one-time-recording will record an episode even if the system thinks you already have that episode. Can a one-time recording be specified separate from a guide listing? Meaning, can I set a task to record on channel 7.1 ...

Re: Pixelation on Bottom of Picture

This appears to be a bug in ffmpeg's software mpeg2 decoder. I have filed a bug report here: https://trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/8792 Hi tmm1 ! I finally got back around to this, and in my samples I'm not seeing the same problems (or any for that matter) using the ffmpeg options you outlined in the bug ...

Re: End of CableCard support - per FCC?

Perhaps it may be best to "wait and see" what the cable companies decide to do before jumping ship and/or freaking out? If you read the entire document from the FCC there is still a stated need for a consumer-friendly solution, but they decided that CableCARD is not likely to be that solution moving...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Let's call the post above a big ol' heap of nothing, Team Kodi changed the most recent nightly so the way it is still works! Glad I dragged my feet a little on pushing out an update for Matrix and then needing to pull it back.

Thanks Team Kodi! (and no, I had nothing to do with it).

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Hey gang, I have some (hopefully temporary) bad news for the Matrix builds. Kodi has disallowed the method I was using for auto-update on this platform, to the extent that you won't even be able to install the addon against recent nightlies. The new rule appears to be that if you install an addon fr...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I noticed over the last week or so that when I watch live TV, I'm getting buffering and once in awhile, I get an error message that says "Unable to read from stream" and then it stops the video. I usually get about 15 minutes of watch time before it stops. I am running on a ShieldTV. I found when I...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

If you are able to set the use the recording.SetEPGEventId() to the value used for broadcast.SetUniqueBroadcastId() for the same SetUniqueChannelId() you don't need to match on time. I use the EPG end time for this ID. Martin Did not know that! Sounds ideal, will hook it up that way instead. Thank ...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Hi everyone, while I'm still in a "things seem good, nothing to do" state right now, I did notice something the other day and would like your input how to deal with it. The relatively new change to adjust the Kodi Timer start and end times based on the start and end padding does have a sneaky side-e...

Re: EX4100-based DVR hasn't recorded anything since firmware update

Looks like it was just hosed on my end? After the restart it's trying to communicate again. I searched all logs for record-api.hdhomerun.com and there is a complete lack of event downloads between 8/6 and 8/13 (just now): \\brehmlan-nas\hdhomerun\20200805.log(798):20200805-07:33:34 Recorded: recorde...

Re: EX4100-based DVR hasn't recorded anything since firmware update

I'll bounce it since you were able to look, and see if that helps. I'll schedule some stuff to record today and let you know if it works. Series and one-off.

Thank you!!

Re: EX4100-based DVR hasn't recorded anything since firmware update

Many times that wd has updated firmware it prevents the record engine from starting and the engine needs to be reinstalled. A few times permissions have been changed so you may need to look at that (i have even seen it allowed to record but can't read the file later to know its there) . I would als...

EX4100-based DVR hasn't recorded anything since firmware update

Hello, my WD EX4100-based DVR engine hasn't recorded anything since it automatically applied a firmware update on August 5th. I've missed a number of things (aggravatingly also tonight's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." finale, as well as last week's). The new firmware version is 2.40.155, and was ...
