Re: Apple TV App Downloaded

I might be imagining things, but it seems like upgrading to tvOS14 or tvOS14.0.1 reset the HDR settings. I did have to go in and change them back to 4K SDR. I still see a noticeaable difference in color saturation between Channels and HDHR apps. Could be. If it prompts you to enable DV or HDR, just...

Re: Apple TV App Downloaded

This is consistent with my experience. I researched a little. Apparently harmony by default controls with IR (my setup), but can also use Bluetooth providing some additional functionality. Depends on how you set it up. Bluetooth setup requires additional pairing. You pick one, not both. It has noth...

Re: Apple TV App Downloaded

foxbat121 had reported this in another thread Set ATV to SDR mode, not HDR mode or DV mode. Then setup ATV to match dynamic range. The forced SDR to HDR mapping never looked correct in any device or PC. Fortunately, you don't have to use it on ATV. With above setting, you will have SDR show up as S...

Re: Apple TV App Downloaded

My Harmony is using BT for controlling the ATV. It has the same limitation. In order to see the guide or change channels, I have to do all the following: 1. Press OK button to bring out the UI. The UI focus is always on the left most side of the UI, e.g. pause. 2. Press right button many times to br...

Re: Unable to play channel DRM error

By any chance did you ever install the beta firmware for your Shield? Those are not signed or certified by Google and many DRM problems will arise (like Disney+ won't work in addition to HDHR app DRM won't work).

Only SD can identify your DRM issue after you turned on the diagnostic in app.

Re: Tivo stream 4k update mpeg2 issues

Oh no, Reportedly MiBox 3 is getting Android Pie beta updates now. MiBox S is the first one that hit with MPEG2 bug with Android Pie update. I still have my MiBox 3 in working condition and hope it won't get hosed again.

Re: Tivo stream 4k update mpeg2 issues

The beta is not target for SoC only. SD probably put a blacklist in the app to switch to software decoding when certain hardware model and firmware version. It started with MiBox S, some other box using same SoC as MiBox S, now TiVo.

Re: Tivo stream 4k update mpeg2 issues

Both run the same SoC, S905Y2. Makes sense to be broken at the same time. Looks like Amlogic breaks MPEG2 decoder almost across the board. Lucky my Verizon Stream TV box is still working fine after recent update. Knock on wood.

The linked posted before was for beta testing Google app, not HDHomeRun app. No wonder you can't get into the beta.

Re: Inter-VLAN (IoT Network) issue.

VLAN's main purpose is to isolate traffic between the different VLANs. Looks like you get it work properly :) You will have to make your PCs to join the same VLAN in order to see the broadcasting packets from the tuners. Then, why you make the VLAN in the first place? Yes, each VLAN can all go out t...

Re: Transition from WMC to HDHomeRun Software

Just do a channel scan on your Prime's web page. It will tell you which channels are DRM. You don't have to install or use any SD software. Most cable providers encrypt all channels now but it doesn't mean they also put DRM on all channels. Encryption is handled by the cablecard. DRM is just a flag ...
