Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

The story goes back to when we knew we could no longer manufacture the original PRIME, due to one of the key components no longer being made. A "PRIME4" was in development and was almost sent off to certification, but the same thing happened again there with a key component, and we had to start ove...

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

The demand for a 6-tuner device goes back to 2008. Is that where the whole story begins? Correction: Windows 7 hit the market October 22, 2009. I imagine demand and pay-off is significantly lower in September of 2020, especially with the advent of this current announcement. The story goes back to w...

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

You guys have no idea how much it's killing us that we can't tell all of you the whole story. As long as there's any chance of the PRIME 6 still being released, we're going to play it safe and not say anything publicly that might hurt those chances. The demand for a 6-tuner device goes back to 2008...

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

It does seem like this product will never be released. There are some of us who have not cut the cord because it gets to the point you will be close to cable pricing when you add up all the streaming services you will need. Thank goodness Netflix is included with my T-Mobile bill and I have always ...

Re: End of CableCard support - per FCC?

I find it very unlikely that Verizon, Comcast, etc. will kill your CableCARDs anytime soon. Since no cable companies would ever have offered CableCARDs for third-party equipment if the FCC hadn't forced them to, I think they'll kill their use as quickly as they can. Instead of immediately dropping ...

I would love to hear other people's recent experiences.
You can't play recordings in progress. That's a dealbreaker for me.
I thought that I read this has since changed. Certainly worth checking.

Re: Plex Commercial Detection updated to skip commercials

I also pointed out that Plex only supports 1 lineup so mixing OTA and Primes is a problem. Nothing against Plex but the DVR is just lacking. In my case I need to share the tuners with the HDHomeRun APP in order to watch DRM so Plex is not an option until they fix tuner sharing. If you are only doin...

Re: Plex Commercial Detection updated to skip commercials

I keep trying it but until they fix tuner sharing with other APPS the DVR is not on par with others.... Also it only supports one lineup. Channels DVR outshines the Plex DVR by a longshot. I'm aware of Channels; my question relates to Plex. You are creating your own issue by using both apps and I'm...

Re: Plex Commercial Detection updated to skip commercials

As the title says, Plex added the option to flag commercials to skip, rather than deleting them permanently. So now if ads are flagged incorrectly the file isn't permanently butchered. Grid guide, commercial detection. Plex is shaping up to be my main driver. Added: Another advantage includes remot...

Re: Will Slice ever work as intended

The only reason I mentioned grid guide (speaking for myself) is due to the deficiencies of slice. Slice could be decent but it just isn't. I appreciate Nick's vision but there are things missing from the app that complete the TV/DVR experience. My biggest issue is searching for content in a convenie...

Lol. It's right there on the page in green and white under the picture of the tuner.

Re: No Internet, No App????

They are addressing this. It's been "fixed" before but never worked as expected, apparently.

Re: Will Slice ever work as intended

To add to this, my only frustration with the slice guide occurs in that minute or so long period between shows at the top and bottom of the hour. I find that the program airing on the channel starts before the slice increments to the next time slot. Because of this, I'm one level deep in the guide ...
