Re: XMLTV guide data

It should be simpler than that. You invoke the discover API to get the DeviceAuths, Not exactly, as you have to allow one to have a mix of tuner devices (say, OTA *and* cable), and different applications (or same application with selected tuner access) that may want one or the other (or all), and a...

Re: XMLTV guide data

We are testing ... I note that this XMLTV output appears to fall a bit victim to the challenge of channels vs stations(*), and certain applications making assumptions regarding the differences. In particular, at least one well known application (sort of) requires there to be two xml channel definit...

Re: Upgrading to Windows 10 + replace cable boxes

Would you tell me if I was wrong in imagining there is some hope that CableCARD support is just going to completely die off in the industry and you'll be able to ignore the DRM recording community? There are some who will argue that linear cable is dying, and the only question left is what date to ...

Re: San Diego incorrect listing for NBC

On San Diego Cox cable, channel 7 is labeled as COZI TV but it should be NBC As noted in the first announcement post, you should include your device ID so that SD has it available for provider/guide correlation. Providing all information at the onset tends to minimize additional back and forths and...

Re: Comcast/Xfinity cablecard channel guide in Indianapolis

Now live in Indy, using the same cablecard I brought from Seattle CableCARDs (in the general case) can only be used in the same franchise location from which they are issued, and must be associated with your current account. You must get a new CableCARD from your local franchise, and re-validate it...

Re: DVR Software and HDHR App on Linux

With support ending in January for Windows 7 Apparently you still have the option to upgrade to Windows 10 (for free, more or less), as documented here: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/upgrade-to-windows-10-free-heres-how/ Just wanted to know if there is a Linux version of the recording setup software ...

Re: 2 channels not working - SLATE

Perfect. I can do that. And while under the covers it just does the HTTP POST, for those that are not programmers, there is a 3rd party contributed python app (unsupported, but works for me) that can perform some of the work for you too (HDHRUtil-Tuner-channelSetting) documented at: https://forum.s...

Re: windows 8 1 media center pack NEEDED

Re: Extend issue; reset reason = application watchdog

Any suggestions on how to debug? You might try an alternative power supply, but the original extends were notorious to run hot, and the fan reportedly often died. And high heat can result in badness with electronics. I would generally recommend that if the extend is the right answer for you to have...

Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

Can the Dual and Connect co-exist on the same network? Yes, and, as you suggest, the legacy tuners continue to work on the systems/solutions they were sold for (with the usual caveat that eventually they will probably die, although anecdotally, the tuners are like the bunny, they just keep going an...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

I would like to get one Prime 6 since having two of the three tuner Primes is costing us $10.00 for the second cable card. Same. Even though it might not be cost efficient to do so. I would rather give the money to SD than Verizon. Certainly the cost depends on provider (and market), but as I under...
