Re: Servio and Scribe

He says the Premium Channels suit his needs, but his wife needs the Hallmark channel. That is basically where I am at. Spectrum is about to jack up our cable price so for the moment we are going to internet only and cancelling cable. The only thing staving off my wife’s desire for Hallmark is a Hal...

Re: Servio and Scribe

I don’t think anyone who plans on moving/modifying recordings around is the target audience for these devices. Though it would be a nice feature to have.

Re: Servio and Scribe

I would think the majority of people only have one device anyway, just making the device more expensive for unused features. That's how it all starts. You buy one tuner device because you're curious and just want to experiment and the next thing you know you're hooked. You wake up one morning and y...

Re: Servio and Scribe

but don't they recommend plugging the DVR device and the Homeruns directly into your main router? So if one has 2 connects or Primes, Gets a Servio for DVR, that's 3 out of the 4 ports most home routers provide. So Everything else in your home will have to run off separate cheap switches? That's my...

Cheaper to just buy a switch.

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Really hoping the new 6-tuner prime is available soon (at least by Black Friday). I own (2) HDHomerun prime 3-tuners currently, but only using (1) of them due to Comcast wanting to charge me an additional $9.95/month for an extra cable card. Total money grab, so I returned the additional cable card...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

It states Roku would work I am sure others will. I guess it's just the modem that needs to be rented, which in itself is an insane price($10 per mo) given how much retail modems cost. We have had to replace our Xfinity/Cisco DPC 3941 three times in last 18 months, so I'm ok with the $11 monthly lea...

Okay, the next major version of tvOS is out today. Any chance SiliconDust will finally release their own app? Here's hoping...!
Nope...UI update for existing apps not complete, meaning they haven't started on a tvOS app.

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

I pulled the plug on my second prime after 3+ years of great service because one month out of nowhere Comcast sends me a letter stating that due to some internal audit they found that they were not charging me the $9.95 additional outlet fee for the second cablecard and going forward they will.... ...

Re: roku media player works - why no app?

I know this has been beat to death, but just a POI. If the roku media player "channel/app" can play the hdhomerun channels, does this not mean that it is possible to have an official hdhomerun app for the roku? Roku media player is an "app", right? How about make an app that works like it does? Any...

Re: Apple TV app (tvOS)

The current Yamahas are pretty nice and have all the bells and whistles. When you start looking make sure to check Costco as they carry carbon copies of the other Yamahas at a much better price than even online. The Costco ones are tag as TSR instead of RX, but it's just a branding thing and the TS...

Re: Apple TV app (tvOS)

The cost of purchasing Channels app for 2 Apple TV's is not cost effective as we only use HD Homerun for OTA Broadcasts. I would have assumed you would only have to buy it once for all your ATV devices--assuming they're all on the same Apple I.D.? That's the way Channels apps work for Android TV an...

Re: Apple TV app (tvOS)

I didn’t even realize there wasn’t a tvOS app until yesterday when I almost purchased the Apple TV. Now I may purchase the shield instead. I really prefer how Apple products work but there is no telling how long it will take. I was told on irc that they are waiting for the completion of the UI upda...

I can fully appreciate you appreciation in audiophile caliber equipment. Pro-logic may be in your future because inputs and stuff. *shrug* Maybe. There is no question I'll eventually upgrade the receiver. Just not right now. But maybe I'll begin my research now so I can have a feel for the landscap...

Re: Apple TV app (tvOS)

At the moment isn't the discussion of audio formats in relation to SD's app a moot point since all OTA and Cable TV are DD 5.1 at not any of the newer formats. Personally we have a 7.1.2 Atmos system with an Xbox as the primary device, but that does nothing for TV, just games and Movies (very few).
