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...

Newer versions only accept POST.
A reasonable choice moving forward. Web standards (not always fully enforced) suggest that anything that changes the state should be a POST. Certainly deleting a recording should be considered a change of server state.

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

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...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Cable cards are not tuners. They send and receive encryption keys And decodes the streams for its paired host using the encryption and provisioning information sent to it via EMMs. A CableCARD itself is bandwidth limited to 200Mbps(*). Which, if any cable company sent a single channel using all 38M...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Yes, the Prime is not ATSC. However, I imagine many locals are the same feeds being broadcast ATSC, so I used that value for reference. There are two parts here. First, most broadcasters do not dedicate the full 18Mb/s ATSC to a single multiplex (there are other subchannels), so except in a very un...

Neither, it's the external HDHR-DVRUI web based stuff.
Someone is not checking for the unix epoch zero date (and special casing it as "NULL"/"None"/NaN depending on your persuasion). This should probably be posted in the Third Party Software section, under the HDHR-DVRUI topic.

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: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

I remember when this was the 4-tuner Prime....something like four years ago. A transcoding model I believe. There were a couple of rumors as to why it disappeared, but you are correct.... I'll believe it when I see it A good plan for any device. No one should buy (or not buy) on promises of future ...

Re: Python & Windows scripts for HDHR DVR recordings

is the api available somewhere? None of the discovery/device interfaces are formal APIs (the only formally documented and supported APIs are on the SiliconDust github pages, and those are for the DVR engine). People have just reverse engineered the requests and responses. That also means that those...

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...
