Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

How the selection of which tuner of the available 3 in my prime at address 192.168.2.188 happens is unknown to me. I'd assume the prime serves an available tuner as it is requested. For example I can put http://192.168.2.188:5004/auto/v124 into vlc and start watching the channel, how that tuner was...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

Perhaps a clarification then would be best. Because based upon the FAQ entry, it reads that ATSC3 channels would only work with third-party apps. Not sure I follow. At the moment we don't have any app for Apple TV, so for any HDHomeRun one does need to use a third party app. The FAQ seems to indica...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

It seems that SiliconDust has no plans to support Apple TV. (Or does this only extend to ATSC3 channels, and that a tvOS app is indeed on the way, but it will not support viewing of the ATSC3 channels?) We can't support all ATSC3 features on Apple TV (the interactive stuff), but viewing "normal" AT...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

Will SiliconDust eventually be supporting the Quatro 4K with their own Apple TV app? From the Kickstarter FAQ: Apple TV is expected to play most video content, however Apple TV will not support ATSC 3.0 interactive content. … Playing ATSC 3.0 video content will require a third party app such as Cha...

Re: HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K for ATSC 3.0

Based upon this: Here in Phoenix the major networks are sharing a single ATSC 3.0 physical channel. We expect to see a similar approach in other markets where broadcasters share one or two physical channels broadcasting ATSC 3.0 content. It would appear the expectation is that multiple broadcasters ...

Re: Future Features

A user account interface similar to what Netflix uses would be nice. You could designate kids accounts that wouldn't see certain recordings. How you'd determine what the kids can/can't see, I don't know. Perhaps add the ability to select at record rule creation. Does the guide data contain ratings?...

Re: libhdhomerun-dev package location

What more do you need to download? You already downloaded and installed the library; there is nothing more to do. (You may want to move the header files into /usr/local/include, but otherwise, you've already done everything.)

Re: Displaying Closed Captions

In the US OTA closed captions are embedded in the video stream itself. The standard is called CEA-608/708. Not all video decoding and subtitle libraries support embedded closed captions; you may want to check your video player to ensure captions embedded in the video stream are supported.

Re: RTP vs. HTTP

SD seems to be moving towards HTTP for their API. Why?, I have no clue. HTTP is served over TCP, which is a little slower, especially for streaming video, because it needs to verify receipt of every packet sent. On the other hand, RTP is served over UDP, which does not verify packets and is therefor...
