Re: How to handle duplicate virtual channels with vchannel command

The lineup.xml file provided from the tuner's IP address has no information about the rf channel associated with a given guide number Well, it does if you include the ?tuning value criteria [yes, these criteria/selectors are not well documented] and it appears that the IP address channel scan simpl...

Forum support for code BBCode no longer preserving formatting

(This probably does not belong here, but the original update post and asking for issues to be reported after the upgrade apparently expired) (I think) since the phpBB upgrade (some time ago now) the BBCode code directive is no longer formatting preserving. In particular spaces get stripped. This mak...

I would disagree here ...
I guess I believe the Internets RFCs definition of what an IP address is should take precedence (using the presumption that something named "LocalIP" means it is an IP address), but I will absolutely agree that SD can choose to ignore standards.

LocalIP is not an IP address in discover request

While I do not think this is an officially sanctioned API (from the github docs), making a request to http://my.hdhomerun.com/discover returns a json object useful to determine the local devices. Included is the local IP address. However, for Storage Engines, the LocalIP is not an IP address, but th...

Re: DRM Windows 10 app C# embed

Is there an API to launch the Win10 app with a channel-setting parameter from a command line? At this time the only documented (and likely to be maintained) APIs are documented on github and as I recall are mostly for the dvr/scheduling. There are certainly some undocumented APIs for various pieces...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

It's looking more and more like **** will, unfortunately get a repeat customer. I am not going to suggest buying a new T device, but if you make that choice, I seem to recall others saying that if you contact them, they will sometimes be willing to offer a slight discount in order to keep you as a ...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

This puts you on Comcast's plan for "****" which also gives you free HD service. While there are a few areas which actually have an HD Programming Fee (which is about subscribed channels), most of Comcast has a HD Technology Fee (similar sounding, but different) which all it does is enable the HDMI...

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: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

]Charter in my area actually raised the cost of internet $10 a month to cover the cost of the 'free' modem. Cable pricing goes up all the time(*), so it is always hard to know with any accuracy how to allocate the increases (Charter has also invested millions at each headend, and in the plant, for ...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Bad luck with modems. We’ve had no such issues, 2 modems and 2 different ISPs (Comcast and Spectrum) for over 12 years. Only bought the second one to upgrade from Docsis 2 to Docsis 3. For us it was money well spent for $80 over 12 years. FWIW, Charter under SPP now gives out "free" modems (no mont...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

It states Roku would work I am sure others will. Which (at least according to the current statements from Comcast) will be about the same price (~$2/mo cheaper) as the Comcast STB when the (free) beta period for Rokus (and the current Samsung) apps end. For some, the Roku, or the Samsung (or the ru...

Comcast has non-CableCARD areas already.
Almost all providers have FTTx areas (new construction in (true) greenfields is typically FTTx), although many are still using RFoG to preserve some existing facilities, there are known exceptions (as you see).
