Re: Live Slice/Guide Issues with Windows 10 App

It's barely after noon in California. We'll see where we are towards the end of the day.

Re: Very poor to 'none' signal quality

100% = 0dBmV, and a change of 5% is a 3dBmV difference.

Re: hd homerun install - bobcherry

If you run the installer, when it gets to whatever step is before that error comes up, if you browse into that folder, is the file in there? If not, what files are in that folder?

Re: channel scan not distinguishing channel(s)

I prefer NextPVR to WMC, yes, and I use it as my backup recording platform (I have a lot of reception problems and need to run multiple antennas and multiple devices to improve my chances of getting a clean recording). In your case, the problem is that the provider is using the same virtual channel ...

Re: A list of 50 Inch Smart TV's that support HDHomerun would be great !!!!

The brands I listed all come from the official list at https://www.android.com/tv/ so they should be certified and support DRM content. Some of them like Sharp and Philips have just become available in the last couple months and are the first TVs running Android TV those companies have released in t...

Re: Comcast missing channel

A blank channel name would indicate that either there's no entry or a blank entry for that channel in the network text table coming from the cable provider. Until they add the name we won't be able to assign a guide listing for it. For what it's worth, I don't even see a listing for channel 148 on t...

Re: HDHomeRun OTA Live for Roku

DRM isn't our issue to solve. Roku's system gives the app almost no control over anything. You basically get to make some layouts, fill them with text and images, and write some scripts that link it all together and feed video URLs to their video player. All the work happens in their player, so if i...

Re: hd homerun install - bobcherry

It's included in the installer. Getting an error that it's missing usually means there's something wrong with the location where the installer gets extracted to. Open a File Explorer window and put this in the address bar and hit enter: "%appdata%" Look for a Silicondust folder in there, which is wh...

Re: A list of 50 Inch Smart TV's that support HDHomerun would be great !!!!

Is DRM playback important? That would rule out the Fire TV Edition TVs. Sony, Sharp, Philips, Skyworth, and Hisense have TVs running Android TV that presumably should work. I haven't used most of them enough to give a recommendation other than it's probably best to avoid any Sony TVs pre-2019 or the...

Re: channel scan not distinguishing channel(s)

We wouldn't recommend doing that in this particular case. You needed to block the data because your cable provider is doing something that violates standards and WMC doesn't handle that well, and since Microsoft stopped development of WMC years ago, there's no chance of improvements in WMC. For an i...

Yes, you'll get one email when the order is marked as completed in the shop, and another later that day from Fedex with tracking information.

Re: Comcast missing channel

Sometimes rebooting the device can help as well, if you haven't already done that.
