Re: KCAL

I need the preamp I am 60 miles away from the towers in mountain 2Edge territory. KZSW is a 3KW channel 2 miles away from me. It's blowing out adjacent channels out. I wish I could find a band reject filter for it. Any affordable band reject filter would adversely affect the adjacent channels. One ...

What, no router? Or is it a modem/router combination? What, if anything, provides DHCP service?

Re: tuners not being released.

There is a program called HDMonitor by warpster that, in addition to giving you plenty of information about the status of all of your tuners, will allow you to unlock any locked ones. His post about it is at http://www.silicondust.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=12216&start=60#p90155 . However, the ...

Re: Very poor to 'none' signal quality

I agree that I'd like to see actual signal strength levels in HDHomeRun Config GUI but a modification that everyone should understand is to allow the bar graph and percentage to exceed 100%, up to whatever level is sure to kill reception. When the bar graph exceeds 100% (or whatever level is known t...

Re: Windows Media Center and current OTA tunners

On the W7 machine, worked right out of the box but can't get my legacy MDP-130 to run in W7, far superior than using WMC and the remote is sweet, better than a Hauppauge. The MyHD MDP-130 can be made to work on Win 7 and 10 but with some limitations. There's an AVSForum thread, MyHD on Windows Vist...

Re: tuning

I just checked my HDHR setup program (version 20190417) and Australia is on the list. Are you sure it's not on yours? Or maybe it's some list in Plex Pass, which I don't use.

Re: Thread split - shspvr

Of the differences shspvr noted between drives optimized for computers and for A/V, the most important is how they handle read errors. When a computer drive encounters a read error, it keeps rereading the same sectors, hoping for success,* until it finally gives up and returns an error code. That ca...

Re: Channel Scan = No Channels Detected

You said you downloaded the latest Windows 10 software, which is probably the Win10 App. Did you also install the general Windows software? ISTR that it's necessary to get the legacy tuners to work with the online guide system. I could be wrong on that.

Re: Forum support for code BBCode no longer preserving formatting

Whenever I want to post text where it's important to preserve spaces, such as code indents or column alignment, I first copy it into a text editor (I use Notepad++ but most any editor should do) and replace all spaces with non-break spaces (Alt+160). Then I copy it to my post and enclose it in Code ...

Re: TVJunkieMOD (Record, Request, Playback, Favorites +)

The last post in this thread is over a year old and the latest version of the mod I'm aware of (26) is older yet. I was using it on a Raspberry Pi, currently running Kodi 17.6. It worked well until I upgraded my HDHR4-2US's firmware to 20180817 from 20150826 to see what Premium TV looked like. After...

Re: Forum Improvements?

Quote citations definitely can work in we_universal. Look at this page in the French Car Forum, which is running phpBB 3.2.2 and we_universal 2.5.6-b1 or later (latest is 2.5.6-b3 dated 8/1/2018) by v12mike.

Re: HDHRUtil utilities - A few useful (python3) scripts for those using the HDHR ecosystem

Since I'm not a coder, I don't know if the following suggestions are possible with variants of your scripts or even as they stand now, but they would be useful. 1) An additive scan of a user-selectable range of channels, i.e. keeping all previously-found channels. A special case would be to add a si...

Re: Unofficial Kodi PVR Client for HDHomeRun DVR subscribers

In your PVR client in the Recordings section I do see series episode names but there are no episode numbers listed. Is there any way to show the episode numbers with episode names? Lots of posts! Will check them all ASAP. For this one, yeah ... I can absolutely add that as an option. Any particular...
