Re: W10 Client User Guide for PC or Phone

Channel Up and Channel Down no longer works during LiveTV. Checked the MCE remote with Advanced Mapper, and it is still programmed as Channel up/down. Is this a bug in the newer versions? you might want to report your issue in a new thread in the troubleshooting section to see what may be happening...

Re: Glitchy TV on Fire TV Sticks

Hey all, having an issue with a couple of devices. I have two Amazon Fire TV sticks, one on wireless and one on wired Ethernet. Both are having issues with live and recorded TV becoming glitchy, with TV gitching, stopping and starting with sound sometimes dropping out of sync. Occasionally channels...

Re: why was my post removed?

The general opinion from SD in the past was that posts here tend to be one off solutions for an issue or broader client issues which tend to get internal software fixes making the post irrelevant in the future and potentially confusing. General knowledge to long standing items have gotten turned int...

Stream breaks, blk screen-unable to play

at 4:12pm and 7 pm PDST watching live stream, and at what I perceive as the end of the show and the beginning of another, the screen turns black and displays an unable to play message. I have to tune another channel to get a stream going again and then switch back to the original channel. Have seen ...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

I've played around with the Roku app, and it's pretty nice, yes, but Comcast/Xfinity has stated that they intend for TV-connected apps (but not mobile apps) to cost money, just like renting a box, when they exist their beta period. So you still have the major problem with the cable companies chargi...

Re: Pixelation troubleshooting?

I am seeing quite a bit of pixelation for certain recorded (and live) channels, in this case Xfinity Channel 376. (I note that I do not have that many channels in the 300 range, and this is the only one I record from in the 300's.) Is there a standard troubleshooting guide for this? I use HDHomeRun...

Re: Apple TV 4K

Screen mirroring is horrible. Doesn't fill whole TV screen. HDHomerun app freezes, and DMR doesn't work. I found it horrible for almost everything I tried especially switching from HDR to SDR... do not recommend it stick with the Shield or even the Firestick 4K. fire tv products can not do DRM...

Re: Develop your own Android box

I agree with the OP's assessment of SD product. But their products are a very niche market that give them a buffer to others entering the market [especially with the prime]. And as noted the stb android based market is a wash of many marginal choices and someone who will give a lower price to gain a...

Re: Prime still available and will it serve my purpose?

If TWC was purchased by Comcast, does that mean they've relaxed the incessant DRM-ing of all channels TWC was notorious for, or do they just arbitrarily do it for monopoly power in states that allow it? Well the comcast purchase of TWC was denied by FTC. Poor decision in my opinion by the FTC as co...
