Re: Tivo stream 4k update mpeg2 issues

Oh no, Reportedly MiBox 3 is getting Android Pie beta updates now. MiBox S is the first one that hit with MPEG2 bug with Android Pie update. I still have my MiBox 3 in working condition and hope it won't get hosed again.

Re: Tivo stream 4k update mpeg2 issues

The beta is not target for SoC only. SD probably put a blacklist in the app to switch to software decoding when certain hardware model and firmware version. It started with MiBox S, some other box using same SoC as MiBox S, now TiVo.

Re: Tivo stream 4k update mpeg2 issues

Both run the same SoC, S905Y2. Makes sense to be broken at the same time. Looks like Amlogic breaks MPEG2 decoder almost across the board. Lucky my Verizon Stream TV box is still working fine after recent update. Knock on wood.

just confirmed with google that google play services is only for mobile not compatible for tv. maybe its no longer available and grandfathered to those joined in time
The linked posted before was for beta testing Google app, not HDHomeRun app. No wonder you can't get into the beta.

Re: Inter-VLAN (IoT Network) issue.

VLAN's main purpose is to isolate traffic between the different VLANs. Looks like you get it work properly :) You will have to make your PCs to join the same VLAN in order to see the broadcasting packets from the tuners. Then, why you make the VLAN in the first place? Yes, each VLAN can all go out t...

Re: Transition from WMC to HDHomeRun Software

Just do a channel scan on your Prime's web page. It will tell you which channels are DRM. You don't have to install or use any SD software. Most cable providers encrypt all channels now but it doesn't mean they also put DRM on all channels. Encryption is handled by the cablecard. DRM is just a flag ...

Re: Xbox channel selection issue 20200721e

I tried on my Shield with Harmony remote hub. There is no way to get out of channel input screen no matter which key I press unless I press BACK button to back out. Basically, there is no way to select a channel by number buttons and SELECT/Enter buttons. Update: now the up or down button does work....

Re: Can one use both Plex DVR and HDHhomeRun DVR together?

I don't see why not as long as you understand that the two will not share a tuner. So, when both are recording, extra tuners will be used.

I have both HDHR DVR and WMC running on my Win7 box for almost a year now.

Re: Long press to skip through recordings

On many new Harmony remotes, long press of a button sends different command (or same command but you don't get the long press part). So, long press is a bad idea. Up and down buttons are fine for quick jump forward and backward.

Re: HDHomeRunn on Android

Looks like Samsung doesn't like this option (maybe forcing you to buy a more expensive unit with larger storage). There are a lot of issues related to using these cheap external storage: 1. Speed. SD cards are notoriously slow due to its unique interface design and physical limitations. Using it to ...

Re: The Weather Channel not Playing (Optimum)

I'm not familiar how SD made its record engine work. But what you described sounds like a incredibly clumsy system that is prone to failure. We all know automatic channel scan is very unreliable (especially for those with tuning adapters) and often not frequent enough. In theory, a channel's DRM/Cop...

Re: The Weather Channel not Playing (Optimum)

Obviously DVR engine knows exactly a channel is DRM or not without the help of URL. After all, channel DRM flag is in the video stream itself, not up to the external influence. In both of mine and OP's cases, the channel scan results in a channel being non-DRM. It send the requests to the DVR engine...

Re: The Weather Channel not Playing (Optimum)

The record engine is apparently capable of detecting whether a channel is DRM or not based on channel stream, not from URL. Only the client is purely based on URL in order to be able to play DRM channel directly because it knows DVR engine can't handle it. When DVR engine eventually supports DRM rec...
