Re: Fire stick 4K hanging up during live viewing.

Please try the new 20210928 release: https://download.silicondust.com/hdhome ... ndroid.apk

This detects when the hardware MPEG2 codec has stalled/failed and switches to software decode.

Re: HDHomerun Config GUI link to VLC Player suddenly broke

You have another application on localhost port 5000.

The HDHomeRun Config GUI app launches VLC telling it to listen on port 5000 and then sends video data to port 5000. You can see from the VLC log that VLC was unable to listen on port 5000.

Re: Closed Captions

i flipped over to the LG CX and using the HomeRun app did not get any CC on the ATSC 3.0 feeds. So I do not believe it's a "Channels" thing. Is it conceivable that none of the 5 streams of network shows support CC? The currently released HDHomeRun firmware delivers ATSC 3.0 closed caption...

Re: Closed Captions

With ATSC 3.0 subtitles are delivered in XML files along with the audio and video segments. When the HDHomeRun converts to TS format the audio, video, and subtitles are delivered as elementary streams.

Re: HDhomerun and Roku DVR playback has choppy video and audio

Roku doesn't support seeking with DLNA format streams like the HDHomeRun generates. For Live TV that doesn't matter too much but seeking is critical for playing back recordings. To work around this Roku limitation the HDHomeRun DVR generates HLS segments which worked well up until Roku released an O...

Re: Closed Captions

Hi,

Closed Captioning is a feature of the player/client device. If you are using Channels DVR you will need to ask them to support ATSC 3.0 closed captioning.

Re: Upgrading 4K Scribe SSD to 2 TB

The big trick with the HDHomeRun DVR... You can have any number of tuners - think of them as a pool of tuners. You can have any number of storage devices - they all work together to provide one large pool of storage. You can have any number of clients. That means you can have the SCRIBE with 1TB, ad...

Re: Upgrading 4K Scribe SSD to 2 TB

The SCRIBE will support a larger drive.

The requirement is for a 2.5" SATA HDD, 7mm tall (not 9.5mm or 15mm). The largest 7mm drives currently available are 2TB.

The SCRIBE and SERVIO use a Video drive rated for 24/7 use. The 2TB SERVIO drive is a Seagate ST2000VT000-1RE174

Re: UI issue - ver. 20211001 skipping forward or back

We have confirmed that left/right for RW/FF don't work after pausing with the latest beta ("early access to new features" enabled).

The beta will be re-released tomorrow with this fixed.

Re: HDHomerun Config GUI link to VLC Player suddenly broke

Could the developers who wrote the HDHomerun Config GUI.exe please comment? Those people ought to know how it's supposed to work, and how to fix this. Tested today - working fine for me. The stream bounces through the HDHomeRun Config GUI app for diagnostic tracking which is why you see 127.0.0.1 D...
