Re: Duplicate virtual channels UK / France

@dxb I was going to suggest an attenuator but I see you are already on the case regarding that. Another possibility might be to deliberately point at a weaker UK transmitter in a different direction. This is not going to work for everyone but many locations can get signals from more than one transmi...

Re: EyeTV dead for me

For fellow Mac refugees. I started off with EyeTV many, many years ago with USB based tuners. There are still many things it does better than most others such as PIP, DVB subtitles (not supported still by Silicondust). It even has built-in cell level editing for recordings. Currently I am using Wind...

Re: Are there any plans (at all!) to build a dvb-s2 (satellite) compatible tuner?

I know we've had internal discussions about it dating back years, even getting to the point of having a board layout designed, but there are always sticking points that push it back behind other things we're working on. One of the big ones is that a lot of countries don't have true free-to-air sign...

Not yet. This is something will definitely be supported.
Great news. Can you also add a preference to optionally show subtitles automatically when the sound is muted?

Re: InstaTV for iOS/tvOS Beta (iPhone/iPad/AppleTV)+DVR Supp

The In-App Purchase covers mutiple items - Software Development cost. This is the main cost. We don't do all the development for free. There are many many more improvements planned for both iOS and tvOS. - AC3 for some iOS devices for some countries for some broadcasting formats. - Other patents/te...

Re: InstaTV for iOS/tvOS Beta (iPhone/iPad/AppleTV)+DVR Supp

I think the InstaTV in-app fee is cover the license fees (+ a bit extra) for AC-3 audio only. That's what I thought as well originally and this would have been consistent with the fact audio worked without this addon in v2.6. However the audio formats used in the UK are MPEG1 audio for standard def...

Re: InstaTV for iOS/tvOS Beta (iPhone/iPad/AppleTV)+DVR Supp

Hi bud. Yeh I'm running it on TVOS (v1.5something) and on an iOS 10 beta for the iPhone 6 I'm tunning v3.0.1. Yeh I paid for the audio on iOS and it seems to work fine. No issues to speak of. Both the apps (TVOS and iOS) seem to be pulling the guide info from SD servers, not the OTA transmissions. ...

Re: InstaTV for iOS/tvOS Beta (iPhone/iPad/AppleTV)+DVR Supp

How do I get in on this DVR Beta? Or has it now been released on the TVOS App Store? Already have the SD DVR backend running on a WD 2T my cloud NAS and have a HDHR connect. I'm in the UK if that matters at all. Been using Channels previously but they are pulling further UK DVR development UFN, so ...

Re: InstaTV for iOS/tvOS Beta Access (iPhone/iPad/AppleTV)

It would be very helpful if the authors of InstaTV Pro could clarify what the position is regarding audio support on iOS devices. Version 2.6 worked (still works) fine to play standard definition DVB-T channels which use MPEG2 audio, it also works fine to play high definition DVB-T2 channels which u...

Re: InstaTV for iOS/tvOS Beta Access (iPhone/iPad/AppleTV)

Be warned! I have just upgraded to the release version of InstaTV Pro 3.0 for iOS. While I was aware from the release notes that this version does not include the EPG Grid what is not mentioned is that this version completely breaks audio support at least for UK and Presumably all European and Aust...
