Re: New UI went live for everyone?

Yes. There are still a few minor things being worked on, like data disappearing from slices when the app is left running for extended periods of time (like 6+ hours) and the zoom not responding on some platforms, but the feeling is that it's ready for day to day use.

Re: DVR engine wake windows 10 PC?

The DVR device needs to be on 24/7. The HDHomeRun client app is not bound to a particular DVR the way a WMC extender is, so there would be no way for a client to know that a DVR exists and no way for it to wake the DVR device up if the device is asleep. We recommend using a lower-power device as the...

Re: Live TV - Unable to view single channel

They don't try to keep track of what channels you're subscribed to, so you just get a big list of every possible channel and have to go through and manually disable everything you're not subscribed to if you don't want to see it. They also don't have an open system that can be accessed by third-part...

Re: Has Multipath Performance Improved across the hardware generations?

Multipath handling is much better in gen 5 than it was in gen 3. Gen 3 won't get any of my VHF stations, while gen 5 gets them all reliably (until a plane flies over, which nothing I own can handle properly, but the gen 5 has the fewest problems with).

Re: Live TV - Unable to view single channel

Probably a lot more than 3, because one controller serves multiple headends, and each headend usually has a different lineup of public/educational/government access channels. There's also a separate lineup transmitted via a separate system for DTAs. And yes, it's entirely possible that they'll make ...

Re: Live TV - Unable to view single channel

When a TA is present, all normal tuning goes through the TA (the TA spec requires that). The channel scan uses a hybrid approach to speed up the scan process. All channels that are in the CableCARD's channel lineup are tuned without the TA first. Any that fail due to the channel not being found and ...

Re: Channels changing frequencies: are channel scans necessary on Connect?

The HDHomeRun automatically runs background scans about every 3 days, so it will pick up the changes on its own. If you have any recordings scheduled on the day of the change or in the days after, you may want to manually rescan.

Re: KVUE (ABC Affiliate) has tiling during programming

It isn't possible to stop something that's in progress. The easiest option is to start a recording a few minutes before the show ends and let it end normally.

Re: HD Home Run - Microsoft Internet extensions error

This is usually due to a browser addon loaded in IE or Edge that is interfering with the web components. Check the addon section in both browsers and remove anything that isn't from Microsoft and try again. Note that this is still the case even if you use another browser like Chrome or Firefox for y...

Re: Fire TV 4K HDHomeRun app issues

Most Fire TV devices don't handle AC3 audio on true live streams properly. The HDHomeRun app blocks it entirely on earlier devices. The most recent devices sometimes handle it OK and sometimes don't, for no discernible reason, so it's left available to the user to enable/disable as needed. Plex does...

You have a firewall running to only allow access to the specific services you want exposed to the internet, right?

Re: Linux dvr server binding interface

There isn't. Are you encountering an issue because of that? The latest DVR version should properly handle multi-homed devices and find the HDHomeRun on any interface.
