Re: Duo tuner craziness

Either precisely the right amount of interference to scramble the tuner closer to the source of interference but not the one further away (yes, that has actually happened) or a hardware problem. Move the device and see if it persists. If so, open a trouble ticket.

Re: Samsung TV 2018 - Channel guide is folder list?

It's not implemented in the firmware, but it's not like code ever truly gets deleted. If someone actually produced a working RUI implementation then SD could pull it out of mothballs, clean it up, test it, and re-release it. But, they can't keep something implemented in firmware that they have no wa...

Re: my.hdhomerun.com never ever finds HDHomerun tuner

If you're using an ISP that uses carrier-grade NAT, the my.hdhomerun.com page typically won't work. The most common ones are Hughesnet satellite and AT&T Mobility (including AT&T hotspots/LTE modems and fixed wireless, but not DSL/U-verse/fiber).

Re: PLEX Server

Be aware that Microsoft's WebDAV client uses a 32 bit integer for the file size, so it can't send or receive files over 4GB. Typical Microsoft idiocy.

Re: HDHR5-2DT fails half the time

First item at https://www.kcb.co.uk/contents/en-uk/d70.html. No one is quite sure what exactly causes the interference. It's almost exclusively a problem in the UK. There are a lot of people using HDHomeRun devices for OTA broadcasts in France and Italy, which use the same broadcast standards and HD...

Re: List of ATSC 3.0 stations?

Great to see that up and running, Trip.

KSTR has been silent for a month with no firm date of restoration of service. Might as well flip it to pink.

Not sure what you're describing. A picture is worth a thousand words...

Probably start with getting an updated video card driver from the manufacturer. Don't rely on the driver Windows auto-installs since those often don't work right.

Re: HDMI to DVB-T on Connect Dual

A lot of Australian HDHomeRun users are using DVB-T modulators to inject the signal from a Foxtel STB or other source into the signal the HDHomeRun receives. I don't know what specific device since I never got into that side of things, but as signcarver suggests, you should find one that is more con...

Re: Can't get rid of pixelation that suddenly appeared on multiple tuners

All those n's are network packet loss, so replacing the coax cable won't help there. You can either try to fix the packet loss by tweaking your sysctl settings (most likely net.core.rmem_max and net.ipv4.udp_rmem_min) or, better yet, switch to mythhdhrrecorder, which uses HTTP to stream from the HDH...

Re: DRM on ATSC 3.0?

Some stations have tested it and the restriction is that you cannot access anything that is DRMed since DRM is not currently supported (as per the Kickstarter). I don't think anyone can give a concrete answer on what if any restrictions might ultimately be used since even the broadcasters themselves...

Re: Software support for new HDHomeRun 4K Quatro

I think OpenDCT supports vchannel tuning with all modern HDHomeRun devices, so that would probably work either out of the box or with minor modifications, assuming SageTV itself can figure out how to decode HEVC and whatever audio codec is in use. I would not expect any effort to be made to try to h...

Re: Upgrading computer hardware

Any Intel stuff starting with Kaby Lake (7th gen) officially is not supported by Windows 7/8.1, and on AMD it's anything Bristol Ridge or newer. There are mods out there to let you install updates on these chips, but who knows what will break over time with no testing being done. Probably want to st...

Re: Freezes since 20200521 firmware update

If you can note the times it happens down to the second that would make it easier for them to find in the logs. Just make sure you're getting the time from something that has a properly synced clock (cell phone is easiest).

Re: Works Everywhere Except IPad

Based on the design, that's probably an iPad 4, which was released in 2012 and stopped getting OS updates after 10.3.3/10.3.4. Silicondust's iOS app was moved to requiring iOS 11 or later back in like April or May of last year due to iOS 12.2 breaking the way the app rendered video and requiring the...
