Re: Choppy playback on PC

How exactly do you expect 60Hz video to play smoothly in 144Hz refresh rate? Have you tried 120Hz or 60Hz?

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

If you run any 3rd party firewall or internet security software, it will block the communication, especially the discovery packets. Otherwise, those apps are quite reliable to discover the tuners unless the communications are blocked. Connecting directly to PC has always been supported but not recom...

Re: MiBox S Playback Fixed?

To complicate the issue, not all MPEG2 streams are affected. Did you encounter this problem as described by Sammy before the latest update? In fact I have to send the sample capture to SD for them to reproduce. I no longer have the MiBox S once it was deemed useless after the Android 9 update last y...

Re: MiBox S Playback Fixed?

HDHomerun app will switch over to software MPEG2 decoding for this box. So it is not a valid test. The real test is to play some MPEG2 video using other software like Sammy did in OP.

HDHomerun Record IS the DVR. If it is listed, you must have installed it somehow.

Re: MiBox S Playback Fixed?

I don't see MPEG2 bug ever been listed. Let alone fixed. Unless you see it is explicitly listed, you should assume not fixed.

Re: Record Firmware 20190621 warning on ROKU

Some features on Roku HDHR app requires the updated record engine. Hence the warning. If you don't have a DVR account, why you have the record box in the first place? Maybe you should just remove that box instead?

Re: No HDHomeRun detected.

The web interface only works reliably with Chrome. If you use Edge, it only works if your network connection type is set to public. Otherwise, Edge will not let you connect.

Re: MiBox S Playback Fixed?

Yes, HDHR app will use software decoder for MPEG2 on this chipset. The hardware MPEG2 decoder is broken after Android 9 updates (it affect another Android TV box with similar SoC).

Re: Win 10 app MF_MEDIA_ENGINE_ERR_DECODE : HRESULT - 0xC00D36F2

I saw this quite often due to the changes in latest app update starting at the end of May 2020, typically during channel switch between certain channels. For example, when I switch between CNBC and CNN channels. Turn off AC3 passthrough typically helps. I avoid use Win10 App as much as possible for ...

Re: no audio ota roku app

Roku box does not decode Dolby Digital which is what OTA broadcasts. It is solely dependent on your TV or other connected device to decode DD.

Re: DRM support for Roku and Fire TV

Verizon put Fox New channel (only the Fox News) without DRM for some time until last week. Then, it reverts back to the DRM channel as usual. I noticed it two weeks ago and then last week my Fox New no longer work because it was re-directed to DVR and DVR can't accept it. I end up need to do a manua...

Re: Shield Pro Audio

Dolby Processing on is meant to let Shield streaming apps to receive DD+ and output DD for compatibility with devices that can't handle DD+. The reason this is needed is that all Stream APPs, like Netflix, Prime Video etc., delivers either DD+ or 2-ch stereo. In order to receive 5.1 audio on an old ...

Re: Shield Pro Audio

The Shield is only capable of transcoding DD+ to DD (Turn on Dolby Processing), not the other way around. HDHomerun App is only capable of either bitstream or decode into 2-ch stereo. So, the chances are your TV channel is sending out DD+ or your receiver mis-identifies.
