Re: Purpose of libhdhomerun keep-alive packets?

cam timeouts are one obvious reason for keep-alive packets.

I'm about 99.9% sure the forum code behind this is something called "SMF" or "Simple Machines Forum".
Except, of course, if one reads to the last lines of the forum pages, it says "Powered by phpBB® Forum Software © phpBB Limited".

Re: Purpose of libhdhomerun keep-alive packets?

For almost all use cases one should probably move to using the new streaming protocols (HTTP) which address a number of limitations of the legacy protocols (including many of the real world problems on (especially) residential networks with UDP protocols).

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

Can you post a link to the Comcast rate cards for us mere mortals? Everyone has to look up their own rate card (because the offers and pricing varies based on market). Go to https://www.xfinity.com/support/rate-card/ and enter your information to see *your* current rate card (and be aware that it c...

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

OT... but locals are still mpeg2 There is at least one market that reportedly has started to transcode even the locals to H.264, presumably as part of their various delivery transitions. I know it seems almost laughable that they still distribute 480 content but that allows them to charge extra for ...

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 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'...

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...

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.

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...
