Re: "Always on top" option for HDHomeRun on Windows 10 ?

I searched for "windows 10 always on top" (without the quotes) and got lots of results telling how to do it. Here's one:
10 Tools To “Always On Top” Any App In Windows 10

Many articles recommended getting the Always on Top app from the Microsoft Store. That's included in the link above.

Re: CONNECT 4K HD issue

If you can copy one of your HD recordings to a thumb drive or other USB device and move that to your Mac, that would bypass any Ethernet or WiFi problem. If it plays well, then you can look into your LAN connections. I've read that under certain circumstances a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet can revert to 10 ...

Re: Specific show stopped recording?

Here's a WAG (and if you don't know what that means, never mind). The actual title of the current CBS series is "Magnum P.I." It's possible the periods are being misinterpreted by the Servio's software/firmware. If so, it should happen to everyone trying to record that show with a Servio. BTW, the o...

Re: Signal in Bangkok Question

The channel setup menus on most TVs will tell you which channels are analog and which are digital. But you said in an earlier post that there are "many channels that are static." If you mean that you see "static" interference, a.k.a. "snow," then they're analog. Digital channels can't show snow unle...

Re: ConnectDuo does not work with my antenna amplifier, what to do?

Almost certainly the amplifier is sending too strong a signal to the HDHR, but if the signal is too weak without it then you should keep the amp connected but add an attenuator. First get a 2-output splitter and feed one output to the TV to see if it still gets the channels well. The splitter will d...

Re: HDHomeRun UK Tuning

I'm not sure why the Welsh channels are selected. The resolution should be the same (I believe this is only an issue with SD channels, however it's hard to check when HDHomeRun doesn't provide the channel frequency!). If you're running Windows and you installed the HDHomeRun Software for Windows (n...

Re: No picture/audio with good signal

Since you're talking about an ATSC 3.0 channel in Seattle, you might want to follow that thread. Especially starting with viewtopic.php?p=369793#p369793. Others are seeing the same problem, so it's on the broadcast end.

For those who don't want to build from source, you can download the Windows binaries from my DropBox account here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/eene7ecard5xkij/ffmpeg-ac4.zip?dl=0 I tried to download from that link but all I got was a blank page.

Re: AC-4 Audio?

For the next ATSC 3.0 HDHR model, or even the current one if it's possible with a firmware change, it would be good to add an option to transcode AC-4 audio to a format that most digital audio players can deal with. AC-3, E-AC-3, even PCM would do.

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

The answer that should satisfy everyone is to make the scanning range a user option. 2-51 or even 2-69 could be the default but let the users who are annoyed by the time it takes change the range to 2-36 or 8-23 or whatever is best for them.

Re: Channel Detection Scan (channels 2-6)

On a related note, why does the HDHR scan down from channel 69? Were there ever any digital broadcasts in the US above 51? Soon the upper limit will be 36.

Re: Is there a limitation on number of channels in Kodi add-ons?

In most cases in the US the highest real cable channel is 158 (~1GHz). But most, probably all, real channels have multiple virtual channels, each with an integer number, so many of those can be in the thousands. I don't know why you're seeing 159 instead of 158 but it's probably referring to the rea...

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: 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...
