Re: Tasks - enhancement suggestion

"Why not add another tuner" as a buffer so to speak. Because you shouldn't have to spend more money to address a problem that the software should be handling. Granted, because of the software's limitations, the only solutions are to either purchase additional tuners, or use EOLed software that won'...

Re: Working with Kodi...

Ha! That trick with long pressing the OK/select button works! Thank you, thank you, thank you! One thing about Kodi is that it gets confusing sometimes. For instance, why do you have to use a "hidden" function like this? Why not just the "info" button or some other button? Anyway, thank you. Back i...

Re: Issues with one channel

Signal levels in the log look great for KGO. How often do you see issues/pixelation/etc? It's possible that whatever interference is occurring simply hasn't been captured by the logs yet.

Re: Phoenix channel guide error

Zap2it doesn't provide the guide data, they are simply another customer of guide data just as Silicondust is. We both get guide data from Gracenote. Maybe Zap was able to describe the issue to Gracenote better than I was.

Re: Static tuner assignment with multiple receivers for each tuner.

The hdhomerun_config can be used for setting up multicasting, but you would need something to watchdog/monitor if the stream gets interrupted or of the unit reboots/looses power, so that it can re-issue the commands. Check out the multicasting section of the TECH manual: https://www.silicondust.com/...

Re: Pixelation issue with SyFy (1411) and FXX (1410) on XFinity

The signal level shown in the scans look barely on the edge of what the PRIME needs for good signal, which is at least 80% signal strength. Have you done a channel scan since putting in the distribution amp?

Re: Prime Middle of 3 tuner LEDs is Solid Green, no other LEDs lit

Normally it's the power supply, where the supply can give enough power to the PRIME, but not to the CableCARD (which is basically a second system that boots up and such). If it's not the power supply, it could be an issue with the CableCARD itself. That being said, a middle -blinking- LED normally m...

Re: Serious audio sync problem on Android TV

Those of you having this issue, please do the following so we can get some diagnostic data on this, as I haven't been able to reproduce it on my own set up. There's likely some other element that we need to account for, and I'm hoping we find a pattern among those having the issue. Please go to the ...

Re: Guide Data Sync to LiveTV on FireTV

Unfortunately, only Amazon knows that. I could speculate on the possible motivations to approve it or deny it, but speculation doesn't mean much and in this case could be wildly inaccurate. It could be technical, it could be a business thing, it could be that they forgot or have a long list to appro...

Re: Issues with Android TV and Fire Stick

How is everything connected? Wifi? If wifi, are you using the little HDMI extension cable on the Fire TV stick? Sometimes the metal backplate on most TVs will cause some issues, and broadcast video is very demanding of bandwidth (much more data than normal streaming services), but extending it a lit...

We may need to figure out another way of notifying the user in such cases.
