Re: Content Protection Error.. Ticket #139433

Ping to your local network addresses should be 0ms normally. That 20ms certainly means there is a significant issue in your LAN. I don't even get that high of ping when I ping internet addresses.

Re: Latest Version of Windows 10 app broke 4K TV

Now I also found that the similar thing happened to Android App on my Google Pixel 3 running Android 11. There are also a lot of screen flashes and other artifacts when playing back the 4K recordings. No problem on my Samsung Tab S5. Nor any problem on my Chromecast with Google TV. I'm not sure if t...

Re: Latest Version of Windows 10 app broke 4K TV

I'm confused, currently the app version displayed inside Win10 App is 20201025. In Windows Store it lists version 1.1.299.0. There is no other updates available.

Latest Version of Windows 10 app broke 4K TV

I'm on Verizon FIOS and it has two 4K channels doing sports all the time lately. Anyway, this morning, after I upgraded to the latest Windows 10 app (app version 20201025), I can no longer watch recordings of those 4K events (and I assume live TV will be the same). It is basically a slide show. Happ...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

That just their way of saying they don't care. I would tell them to try out VLC to playback the video but I suspect they will blame VLC as well. Their engineers in China probably never received such video to re-produce the problem. IIRC, SD might have reached out to them as well last time. How ironi...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

Obviously, their engineers don't have these test MPEG2 video to test with. Otherwise, they won't keep sending out these crippling firmware updates. first happened on MiBox S Android 9 update last year (I reported that). They didn't learn from that and kept up with another for MiBox 3. If you still h...

Get couple of Chromecast with Google TV. They are cheap ($49) and don't have to worry about this kind of problem.

Corporate IT policy overrides local Admin privilege. Any attempt to bypass IT policy is a fire-able offense in most cases unless your last name is Clinton :)

Re: Anybody try the new Chromecast with HDHR?

That's the indication that Google abandoned that app long ago. I can't use Live Channels because it freaks out every 5 minutes of so repeatedly as it detects I have two Prime tuners. So, on all the Android TV box I own, I have to manually disable this app. Now I finally no longer need to do so:)

Re: Anybody try the new Chromecast with HDHR?

The home screen pause is quite annoying. Everytime I switch inputs back to CCGTV, the a few seconds of pause seems forever. I believe what happens behind the scene is that Google tries to populate the 'For You' section, which is the default section highlighted, from cloud and it takes too long. Goog...

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

As jasonl pointed out in another thread, MiBox 3 never had a good de-interlacing even when it works. 1080i60 is de-interlaced into 1080p30 with significant artifacts.

Re: Anybody try the new Chromecast with HDHR?

No difference I can tell. Sometimes I feel Chromecast is more responsive than Shield. But most times, it is a tie for functions that work on both (Chromecast has its own limitations and can't do a lot things Shield can do).

Sorry, I did say SD needs to implement it, nothing you can do unless you have access to their source code and know how to modify the app and rebuilt it :)

Re: HELP! MiBox 3 US Updated Android 9 ... Wrecked

I am experiencing the same problem. How do I get the blacklist implemented on my tuner? You don't. SD needs to implement it (blacklist it so that HDHR app can use software decoding instead of hardware) and update the app. As I suspected earlier in this thread, I'm not sure the SoC in this thing is ...

Re: Anybody try the new Chromecast with HDHR?

Yes, I noticed that problem from day one on my MiBox 3. But my Verizon Stream TV and now Google TV both are way better than that even though they are still AMLogic SoC, the newer S905X2. IIRC, MiBox 3 is older gen S912L or something like that.
