Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

I ran some tests with the TA unplugged (from the wall) Only 150 channels were found (534 are found with the TA but at least one third are duplicates). Only channel 66 (MTVHD) was found. It was not marked as DRM and still could not be viewed with either Windows 10 or the Shield TV. :( It is possible ...

Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

Shutting down the DVR doesn’t help – I just tried again. :( Most Spectrum channels in zip code 33706 (St. Petersburg FL) are not DRM. All channels require a cable card (no clear QAM). DRM is copy (record) protection. Cable card is authorization /encryption. As noted in my first post I also have two ...

Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

The high number versions (1306,1225,1301) that work indicate DRM in the channel lineup.
The fact that Windows media center correctly handles these channels suggests this is not a Spectrum problem.
Note: Send diagnostics is currently off but I can turn it back on if there is something else to try.

Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

To be clear I tried to play the recorded file with PowerDVD and it reported that the recording is copy protected.
I don’t know how to try to view live TV with PowerDVD.

Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

I used Windows (8.1) media center to record about an hour on channel 63 (TWCHD).
Media center indicates the recording is copy protected.
Media center can play the recording but Powerdvd 20 indicates it is copy protected.
VLC crashes when I try to play it. :(

Re: QNAP QPKG for DVR Record Engine

Is there any way to edit the first post to point to the current qpkg files?
I needed to update the recording engine and thought the files in the link were current. :(
Even if you can’t edit it someone at Silicondust should be able to do something.

Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

I updated the DVR manager qpkg to 1.0.5 and the record engine to 20210624. Is 20210624 current? I had tried updating earlier but the link at the beginning of the thread points to older versions such as 0.10.7 I also did a software reset of the prime. I verified that send diagnostic info was still en...

Re: Can’t view some cable channels Windows 10 and Android TV

Wundows 8.1 (that works) is Windows media center, not the SD app – I should have made the clear. I ran the channel scan yesterday through the tuner’s web interface. Running the scan on the Windows 10 PC now. Could you clarify this? "It can also happen if the channel should be DRM and isn't mark...

Re: QNAP QPKG for DVR Record Engine

Have you tried the manual NAS install?
FYI: my NAS is the older 231 (without the P) and has a different processor than your NAS.
I am running two 6TB WD NAS drives in raid one
