Re: Unable To Play Back Recorded Content

VideoReDo and other programs will rewrite some of the data that matters. If you need to cut a shorter segment to limit the amount of data uploaded, use dd or similar to just do a binary cut of the file, e.g.: dd if=filename.mpg of=trimmed.mpg bs=188 count=500000 This will give you a sample that's ab...

Re: Unable To Play Back Recorded Content

Probably best to upload one of the problem recordings to a storage site like Google Drive, Dropbox, or iCloud and email a link to support@silicondust.com along with a description of the issue so they can investigate.

Re: what does card oob lock mean

It doesn't necessarily mean anything. Some cable providers send the out of band channel with less strength than the regular TV channels. This does not cause any problems because the out of band channel uses a much less complex encoding scheme than regular TV channels, and as a result it can be decod...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Tampa

It's too bad NVIDIA cut corners on the video decoder, because in everything other than this issue I've had better luck with NVIDIA than anything else.

Re: Accessing Program Guide Remotely

Best wishes for your father. I do it the long way. I have an OpenVPN server running on my router, and I connect to that from my laptop, RDP in to my desktop, open Kodi, and schedule using the unofficial Kodi add-on. I've done it on my phone in a pinch, but like anything more complex than Twitter, it...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Nashville TN OTA

That may be. I’ll try and see what happens. I can always return it. I don’t understand why you’re so negative about all this. Hating on the 3020, the Televes. I need the biggest I can get for VHF, not UHF. I’ve gotten good UHF from a home-made antenna before. Since it’s the size of the waves. I nee...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Tampa

I purchased a Connect Duo about a month ago and have always experienced moderate to severe blocky pixilation during some scene changes. Setup: Outdoor antenna @ 20', inline amp, Ryzen 5, 16G, Geforce 1050TI, Win10 --> active HDMI to Android 70". Plays native 4K flawlessly @ 30Hz. When I purchased t...

Re: Interoperability issue with HDHomerun4K and Ubiquiti switches

Even if some market did that (which will never happen, because ATSC 3 stations will end up basically upgrading their legacy ATSC broadcasts to a single 1080p of the main network and 4-5 720p subchannels), the 4K device is 2+2 tuners so you'd still top out at 25+25+15+15 = 80Mb/s or whatever, which s...

Re: HDHR Prime on Win10 2016 LTSB

Pretty sure it won't work on 2016 LTSB. A lot of the features the app relies on weren't introduced until the Creators Update (1703). If you're going to be That Guy, consider LTSC 2019.

Re: ATSC 3.0: Nashville TN OTA

Here is what the scan shows. I’ve ordered the Televes antenna Tyler talked about in his Antenna Man video. I’m going to give that a try. Waste of time and money. You need the biggest antenna you can get with the most height you can get to have any chance. That little dinker is even worse than what ...

Re: Firmware upgrade stability

This post should be in the hardware forum since it is not related to ATSC 3 or the 4K model. To answer your question, not really. Looking through the changelog, nearly all of the firmware change since 20200907 have been specific to the 4K model. There was a minor change for other models to speed up ...

Re: HDHomeRun DUAL SageTV install issue and DVR discussion

I don't think the Windows Store one will work with SageTV. You would need a DirectShow-compatible decoder. I like LAV Filters. Not having the codec shouldn't affect the channel scan though, just actually watching.

Re: Interoperability issue with HDHomerun4K and Ubiquiti switches

By the time you get to final retail price of a device, it's a difference of several dollars, not 6 cents. SoCs that have gigabit ethernet built in are not common and are significantly more expensive than the one SD is using. The other option is to use a SoC that has USB 3 or PCIe and a separate ethe...

Re: HDHomeRun DUAL SageTV install issue and DVR discussion

I haven't looked at SageTV in a long time, but I seem to remember that it is important to set the BDA setting in HDHomeRun Setup to SageTV and also make sure the SageTV .exe files are given full access in your firewall settings. IIRC there is one main one for the application, and then a separate one...

Re: Antenna recommendations?

Get a $12 RCA ANT111 from Target or whatever and see if that works. If not, then see if you can get Fios in your building because you're probably not going to be able to use an antenna.
