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...

Until they get the DRM recording working, then it will be a non issue :D

Re: The Weather Channel not Playing (Optimum)

You can do a channel scan anytime with Prime's website. This will refresh the DRM status. I have encountered this issue once: FIOS flipped Fox News channel to non-DRM for a few weeks then flipped back to DRM again. The channel is listed as non-DRM. So when a client tries to play it, it will gets re-...

Re: HDHomeRunn on Android

Google offered the feature called Adoptable Storage in Android OS. With it, you should be able to configure your external storage as adoptable storage. And apps just need to be compiled to allow use of adoptable storage (a simple change by app devs). That's already there since Android 8 or so. But I...

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.

Re: Record Firmware 20190621 warning on ROKU

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.
