Re: W10 update issue

Edge issue is a known issue. You have to change your network type to public network before Edge browser can see the turners. When your network type is private, Edge blocks the access to the discovery of the local tuners for some unknown security reasons.
Chrome always worked.

Re: Two identical setups: One HDView works, one doesn't

Glad it worked for you. This is one of the many bugs of the latest release of the app. I have already reported that a few weeks ago.

Re: Two identical setups: One HDView works, one doesn't

I know with my NPs, I have to turn off AC3 passthrough in app settings (they are connected directly to the TV). You may even have to turn AC3 passthrough on, then off to make it work. This is a new behavior with the latest app update.

Re: Android App and Samsung TV, no DRM channels

Yes, it still crashes today on any DRM channels. It's an app issue (compatibility with the new OS) for sure. It was working fine before Android 10.

Re: Windows 7 Viewer no video and no sound

Is your video card driver up to date? Are the channels you want to watch DRM copy-protected? The old viewer on Win7 does not support DRM at all.

Re: DRM ( Windows = No / Android = Yes)

Video card driver will be prime suspect. You need the manufacturer's driver, not the basic driver from Windows update.

If you turn on diagnostics settings in Win app, you can ask SD to check exactly what is broken. No need to guess.

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 broadcastin...

Re: Latest Android App update broke Nexus Player

It connects to a LG OLED TV which supports AC3. The problem exists whether I enable AC3 passthrough or not. I have another NP connects to the Samsung TV which also supports AC3. Same exact problem on both. Both works fine before this latest update. I know NPs don't support 4K channel playback. So, I...

Latest Android App update broke Nexus Player

While the latest update fixed FIOS 4K issues on my Android Tablet and Android Phone, it broke both of my Nexus Players when playing regular HD channels (these boxes are too old to play 4K channels). But my 3rd Android TV box, Mibox still works fine. On my Nexus players, it will no longer play most o...

Re: subset of tuners?

it would be great if this were automatic and both programs could detect a tuner in use by the other, but i'm guessing i'll have to manually configure things. As far as I know, both WMC and HDHR DVR/App auto use a tuner that is no in use. Not sure about Sage TV. Are you sure you are not overthinking?

Re: Another FIOS 4K problem

Hi Nick,

I got the updates for Win10 and Xbox One app and they work correctly with FIOS 4K channels now. But there is no update for the Android App (they suffer the same problem). Is a fix for Android app coming?

Re: Audio Issues in the Windows 10 Store App

The settings page has been moved in new UI. With Win10 app, you press ESC key to go to the DVR screen (you don't have to have DVR) and top right corner is the settings icon. Click on that will bring out the settings. There you can turn on or off AC3 passthrough.

Re: HDHomerun App Windows 10 require Internet ?

I believe it still need to call home get authorization from time to time for DRM channels. And of course for guides.

Re: Another FIOS 4K problem

I doubt Verizon will do anything to fix it as long as their own cable box works fine. Last time I watched this channel during FIFA Women's soccer game, they just used the AAC which probably is what European broadcasts use.
