Re: changing SSH port for homerun dvr setup

Don't use the HDHomeRun Setup installer to install the DVR, use the Synology package available in the Downloads & Instructions forum. It's the same base software but packaged for use on a Synology NAS. Once installed you don't need to reinstall it after rebooting the NAS, among other features.

Re: hdhomerun_windows_20200701 Setup exe stalling before completion (Win10)

I'm pretty sure it existed on the PRIME. I don't remember when it was introduced. It doesn't violate the prohibition on downgrades because it won't let you go back a version, it just means that if an upgrade fails it stays on the same version as it was already on.

Re: Kodi 17.6 and HDHomerun Add-on Problem

The correct answer is to understand how the firewall works on your distro and be smarter than the firewall. Create firewall ruless to allow all incoming traffic from the MAC address of the HDHomeRun and DVR (best), IP address of the HDHomeRun and DVR (good, but make sure if you're using DHCP to rese...

Re: Programs not listed correctly

This also points out an inconvenience that others have described. Once the system thinks it has recorded a show, it is not convenient to ask it to record again. Since I'm a full season behind due to the above (and my laziness to report it), it will be difficult to set all the recordings needed to c...

Re: 1080P on Comcast?

All Comcast areas carry national channels in H.264, because those channels get downlinked and transcoded at CMC in Denver then fed to the entire country via Comcast's fiber network. Local channels and other channels that have local/region-specific content are generally still received and processed l...

Re: hdhomerun_windows_20200701 Setup exe stalling before completion (Win10)

The thing is, One doesn't want to "Try to see if it works" Reason is, since the Update, updates the firmware, if the update does not work, you can "brick" the box, if it doesn't fully complete the update. So I don't recommend for anyone to just "try" to see if it works, it either has to Work, or th...

Re: shows getting cut off again

We went over this 20 or 30 times when it was my problem to worry about. Some networks don't follow their own published schedules, and complaining here isn't going to do anything about that. The schedule for July 5 on Hallmark's own website shows Good Witch running exactly 1 hour, so if that is wrong...

Re: Symbol Quality = 0

If your TV can't get it either then it's probably not an issue with the HDHomeRun but rather the environment or antenna. Just to get the obvious out of the way, you did install the low VHF extensions on the antenna, right? Unfortunately, there are a lot of problems with low VHF, and channel 2 being ...

Re: EPG info for Kodi also transcoding

US ATSC stations are required to transmit at least 12 hours of EPG data, and these days you'll generally find at least that much on the major networks and subchannels. You're right about the poor quality of the data though. Not really suitable for DVR use. sub, have you heard of anyone using the XML...

Re: List of ATSC 3.0 stations?

Most antennas aren't good below about channel 20. The UHF portions are designed to operate either to channel 51 or 69 depending on the age, and the higher the frequency where the peak gain is located, the worse off the lower frequencies will be since the elements aren't the right size. This wasn't u...

Re: Video errors even with great signal?

Looks like the meter operates on the 2.4GHz wifi band and the 900MHz cellular band, so it shouldn't have any impact on channel 22, certainly no worse than a cell phone or wifi device would. A security camera is probably either PoE and not transmitting wirelessly at all, or powered and using standard...

Re: List of ATSC 3.0 stations?

HEVC is in use in most or all of the markets, but you can expect that most of the services will still be 480i, 720p, or 1080i, and maybe some higher res tests, or perhaps some stations that upscale the 1080i feed from the network to 1080p or something like that. I'd like to see some stations start d...

The rough ambitions were to release at the end of 2018, and for various and sundry reasons that didn't happen.
