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: HDHomeRun Prime 6 update?

Here's how it appears on our bill (Seattle area market): btw, be aware that all cable companies maintain legacy features (including names on the bill) essentially forever in their systems (for both historical and existing customers), even if new customers, or customers changing their plan, can no l...

Re: HDHomeRun Prime 6 update?

Besides, what difference would it be when compared to this guy... The two CableCARD hosts (from the T company) used two S-cards. Most cable companies stopped stocking S-cards when M-cards were upwardly compatible (with the exception of a specific Sony CableCARD TV which apparently could just not do...

Re: HDHomeRun Prime 6 update?

Doesn't Comcast bill it as "Additional outlet"? I'd say there are at least 2 plausible justifications for that, like how only one outlet is in use, and how both cards are serving the same DVR. That they reach that DVR through separate physical devices doesn't make it less true. It *used* to be call...

Re: View for Linux?

What is the URL for obtaining the lineup (does it show what is currently playing like the app?) Channel lineup for a tuner is available based on the response to the http://tuner-ip/discover.json request (the element is LineupURL), but always seems to be http://tuner-ip/lineup.json . Guide data is o...

Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

This is beginning to bother me because I'm not sure how Windows 7 and Windows Media Center are going to function this coming year when Microsoft support ends. You could update to W8.1 (which still has some support left in it). This particular computer is solely dedicated to being a DVR, so the lack...

Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

Help me understand this a little better. If the TV plays audio fine when an antenna is directly hooked up, why would it not work through the HDHomerun app? Is there something about the audio signal that I'm not understanding? For reasons that only the TV manufacturer can explain, there are some TV'...

I stated a fact and then a longing.
Thanks for confirming the statements were not related, and the first statement was at best irrelevant and should never have been written.

Not sure how you got that impression.
Because you included both references. If the first was not relevant, why include it?

Re: When will DRM recording be available???

So they are working on Roku OTA for their new devices. DRM recording wherefore art thou? You appear to making the assumption that they are taking resources from X to do Y making X later. Perhaps *you* can't walk and chew gum at the same time, but real companies can resource staff as needed for spec...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Will the Prime 6 be compatible with Win MCE? Only interested if I can keep using a decent UI. My recollection is WMC has a limitation such that it will only support 4 tuners of a specific type unless you use a third party "adjustment" tool. Other than that, even though the docs are a bit muddled ab...

What do you mean it was withdrawn? Withdrawn from marketing. No new licenses are available. And stock is/was essentially zero from resellers. Microsoft was likely provide a not so subtle hint that this was the beginning of the end to WMC (which was not at all a surprise given they reassigned most s...

Re: WIndows 10 + WMC + HDHOMERUN Prime

Simple solution is to use windows 8.1 Well, 8.1 Pro and the Media Center add on, but while the Media Center add on license was cheap ($10? and even free during the early days), it was withdrawn almost four years ago, and except for some random whitebox vendors with a license sitting in some corner ...
