Re: Hdhomerun Prime tuner usage lights

IIRC, Prime has a power light, network light and three tuner lights. What do you mean by usage light? Do you mean the tuner lights? If so, it only lights up when a tuner is in use. If you have discovery problems and other devices can't use the tuner, no tuner lights will be on. But if you are not ac...

Re: XBox S and Harmony remote

On Harmony setup, you can adjust the IR settings (too many button press or two few button press). It could also be the case where your OK button on the remote is on the way out.

Android 10 DRM broken

Just got official Android 10 upgrade on my Pixel 3. Decided to checkout the HDHR app compatibility. It is worse than I expected. * DRM channels all crash the app immediately. * Most H.264/AVC non-DRM channels got a full screen of green blobs. * I still can't close the HDHR app using back button. Thi...

Re: What kind of hardware required for HDHR Recording computer?

Most cable channels are still use MPEG2 codec (largely because those cable cos still have large amount of old cable boxes that can only do MPEG2) which is extremely inefficient in today's standards. Some switched to H.264 AVC which is much more space efficient than MPEG2. Verizon's test broadcasting...

Re: App no longer loads-XBox One S

I found the similar thing on Win10 desktop. In my case, the last channel I watched was HBO channel during HBO free preview weekend (more than a week ago). And the channel is now gone from my subscription. It will eventually timeout and display channel not subscribed message (a few minutes or so). Bu...

Re: missing channels on fios cable card

IIRC, they are spotty at the best. There is no official apps for the Chrome OS. So, you will be depending on the Virtual Android environment to run the Android app. Often times, the DRM won't work reliably in such virtual environment. Currently the supported platforms for DRM viewing are: 1. Windows...

Re: missing channels on fios cable card

Buy an official Android TV box, not Chromecast device to connect to your TV. Android TV boxes support Chromecast features but most importantly they support HDHomeRun app to let you view all channels (DRM or else) and even DVR.

Re: missing channels on fios cable card

HBO and Cinemax channels are all on free preview last weekend on FIOS.

No, you can't cast them to Chromecast.

Re: missing channels on fios cable card

DRM channels of course should be labeled as such so that you known it needs special playback requirements, e.g. anything other than SD's app or WMC won't play it.

Re: DVR engine wake windows 10 PC?

From what Jason said above, my take away is that since the clients are always dependent on the discovery of DVR engine to determine where it feeds the live TV stream from, DVR or direct from tuner, they want the DVR engine be up anytime the client is opening. Since the client doesn't send any packet...
