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

so at that point, it's easier to just focus on the Prime 6, which would likely have been replacing the Prime 3 anyway. You forgot about the (mythical) "Prime 4 transcoder" (which would have been offered in a timeline a number of years ago after the Prime 3, and before the Prime 6) which would have ...

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

Asking again and again won't change the answer. Technically, asking "Are we there yet?" again and again will eventually get another answer should one eventually arrive, meaning that asking again and again will result in a positive reinforcement (unless you are going to answer "no" any anyone you ha...

Re: Unofficial HDHomeRun DVR repository for RPM based systems

Note: There was a minor edit of the initial URLs for the repo locations. This is recommended for certain future AWS changes. There is no need to change existing setups.

Re: Unofficial HDHomeRun DVR repository for DEB based systems

Note: A change in the initial URL for the file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d file (which is recommended for future AWS changes) was made in the initial setup instructions. There is no need to change existing setups.

Re: NEW - support running multiple record engines as a pool

Folder 'A' is configred to be a shared folder Not sure how you are sharing, but neither NFS nor SMB reliably work due to their lack of complete filesystem emulation. While one can sort of get things to work some of the time, the recommendation is not to share for it will fail in weird ways eventual...

Re: NEW - support running multiple record engines as a pool

To limit the number of concurrent recordings set RecordStreamsMax in the conf file (registry on Windows). Once this limit is reached another record engine will take over additional concurrent recordings. The default/max is 16. I have not tried this (but I was thinking of edge cases), but if you hav...

With Direct TV rolling out live 4K sports and Xfinity won't be far behind ! Is this box be able to handle 4K Except for a few stunts, 4K is expected to be delivered on most cable systems via IPTV (so CableCARD tuners such as the Prime6 are not relevant). Comcast had already offered a few 4K channel...

I created a text file named (unofficial-hdhomerun-dvr-repo.list) and placed it in "/etc/apt"
I have not (re)verified the process, but I think you missed the part about putting the file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ but in any case, all is well that ends, so if you have a working install, great.

Re: RTP vs. HTTP

My MythTV box talks to the HDHR via RTP. MythTV can (using the contributed external recorder) use HTTP(*). One can argue efficiency(**), but the reality is that in almost all consumer environments(***) is that packets will get dropped using UDP, which will result in artifacts (how many packets will...

There is an error here
No, there is no error, the first post explicitly states you have to accept repos that are not signed. If you neither read that item, or if you don't know how to do that, or do not believe it applies to you, you may not be tall enough to ride this ride.

Re: Unofficial HDHomeRun DVR repository for DEB based systems

Is it possible to have a headless Linux box record DRM content from Cable as long as I only watch it through DRM capable devices like Windows? There is no current ability in the shipping HDHR DVR ecosystem for any platform to record content for later playback that requires a protected path. The sta...

Re: QNAP QPKG for DVR Record Engine

I notice that the qpkg filesize difference between 0.9.32 and 0.9.33 is almost double. Any particular reason for this? I have no special knowledge about the actual details (and I am much much too lazy to actually check), but I will note that the more recent recorder engines seems to now have string...

Please add to the install instructions to uncomment out the record dir line in the config :|
I'll see how to improve the docs (and/or the sample conf file mentioning comments in general, and pointing out that the "REQUIRED* line also means removing the comment #). Thanks for the suggestion.

Summary of changes on 2018/06/28 that are user visible: Support for (latest) openSUSE (Leap & Tumbleweed). The Leap repo *should* work for SLES 15.0, but since I do not have a license SLES is untested. The instructions have been updated on the first post to simplify future maintenance for repository...
