Re: MiBox 3 Update Available

I did some testing connect my MiBox3 to a 4K TV (Samsung). The default auto setting on MiBox outputs 720p. I can manually set it to 4k/60p w/o any problems. With the default 720p auto setting, YouTube will be stuck on 720p without switching. But HDHR app auto switched to 4K/60p and plays fine. When ...

Re: Video on VLC but not HDHR View app or WMP

VLC comes with its own video decoders, not installed to the entire system. That being said, HDHR View can use 32-bit VLC for audio and video decoding So, make sure you only have 32-bit VLC, not 64-bit, installed. The video codec is MEPG2, not just any other MPG. In the older days, MPEG2 requires $$ ...

Re: MiBox 3 Update Available

I can report that the wake up problem has finally been resolved for me. None of the past 'work arounds' can wake up my Mibox 3 and hence I turned off HDMI CEC to force the box stay on 24/7. Now I don't need to do that anymore. Not sure where to check that framerate switching stuff because there isn'...

Re: Any recourse? Back to stone age. Everything DRM now

Win8 WMC is an add on and I'm pretty sure Microsoft stopped selling WMC add-on couple years back. So, it is almost impossible to find a new Win8 with WMC right now.

Re: A few question on DRM ?

Try either force close the HDHR app or just reboot the box to see if it helps. Otherwise, you will have to enable the diagnostics on the app and ask SD to look into it. All Android TV boxes, including Shield TV boxes, had reported problems with DRM channels at one time or another. Only SD knows why.

Re: Android Phone App Scanning for new channels?

Not aware of any "app" from sd that scanned for channels. Legacy tuners must be on modern firmware and a scan run from windows (setup program, not app). Modern tuners the scan is run from the device itself (lineup page). https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/5oXG2T5QIBg6IWNVc7vaxDHz9xxpjEAa2aV7XQ_CEbHW...

Re: 2nd Prime tuners unavailable

Of course they can fix it because that's their responsibility, on their side, to make it work. Just be prepared to be patient and maybe a few more calls. Mine was the same initially and a few calls later, it got cleared out.

Re: 2nd Prime tuners unavailable

The difference in cable card authentication will only matter when you try to play any DRM channels. Whatever the status of the cable card authentication has no bearing on network side of things (discovery and communication).

Re: Xbox One 5.1 Bitstream and Stereo Content Issue

Xbox One does not have bitstream option for apps and games regardless the settings name implies. Bitstream DD or Bitstream DTS should be read as Re-Encode DD or Re-Encode DTS. You only use these two mode when you use optical audio. For HDMI audio, leave it as PCM 5.1/7.1.

Re: Toshiba Fire TV 2018 cannot find Prime

It is not the network. I regularly stream several 4k streams around my house. Rock solid network. To find the tuners, the device needs to be able to receive SSDP broadcast packets from the tuners. Those broadcasting packets are often get dropped by network devices like routers, firewalls and in som...

Re: Splitting the coax between a Prime and a cable modem

It depends if Prime sees good signal level on all channels after 6db loss. Prime is pretty sensitive to signal level and only prefers signal level above -10dbmv in my experience. On the other hand, most cable moderms can work fine when signal level as low as -15dbmv.

Re: Splitting the coax between a Prime and a cable modem

I had used both tap and splitter before. A 2-way splitter adds -3.5db signal loss on both outputs. A tap causes vitually no loss on one ouput but -6db loss on the other. There is really no one size fit all solutions. It really depends on what your current signal levels are. Keep in mind channels at ...

Re: Connecting different brands of HDTVs to HD Homerun?

There is no TV apps for HDHR (each brand has its own app system, not universal, that may or may not be open to external vendors). If DLNA is not your thing and you are not willing to purchase any additional hardware, you have no other choice. And there will never be a universal TV tuner.

Re: Lon interview with SD ...Prime 6 looks a long way away ..

With Prime3 out of production, Prime6 no where to be found, I think SD hopes if it waits long enough, no one knows or cares about DRM recording anymore :)

Good thing I have two Prime3 already. No real need for me for Prime6.
