Re: DVR prune episodes python script

I thought I found a bug, but in reality... I have to run the purge code it seems against both units now that I have two Homerun units. I am not sure if the code is going to work right with two units... I am not sure if the algorithm will work with two units... I need to assess this... I've setup the...

Re: Multiple antenna setups

But what were you planning on doing with it once you downloaded as though the file could be viewed by anything that can open the file... The only thing I might do is to rebalance and put the recordings on one drive. Then I might take the unit to a second house for some experimenting (i.e. will it w...

Re: Multiple antenna setups

Thank you for the two replies. I really like the SD Homerun system...It's what I thought houses should have had for a VERY long time. :) I definitely wouldn't want to go the pull the drive route, as I'm sure that would invalidate support. I guess I could go into the router and block traffic to the b...

Re: Multiple antenna setups

You "could" remove the hard drive then it won't record but then why would you have bought the scribe. Long term, I would not want to move the hard drive. During installation and changing things around, I'd like to prevent the system from using the new scribe. Is there a config parameter which remov...

Re: Multiple antenna setups

These homeruns are quite a system. So my first experience is that after "X"ing all of the channels on my experimental DVR, I noticed that the system balances the recordings across the two DVRs. I am not quite sure how balanced, but the new DVR is starting to record. I am not sure how I balance stora...

Re: Multiple antenna setups

You can disable channels on a unit if they aren't desirable (compared to other source). Thank you for the quick reply! (I am experimenting... :) So I have my Duo setup (so easy these device) and I was able to receive 10 channels with a terrible antenna. I have better antennas, but I need to set tha...

Re: Multiple antenna setups

So I purchased a second Scribe to experiment with TV reception and add addition DVR storage space. I intend to bring it on/off line with some testing. Would there be any concerns I have with doing that? Will that confuse my main unit? Long term I intend to keep both and have the Antennas tuned in th...

Thanks! That's good news as I would like to plan for power outages.

Re: No Internet, No App????

I've been only have listening to this post, but I kind of agree with the concern of no-internet - no-app. Is it only the SD Homerun application that does not work? Would I still be able to control the tuner through the APIs and stream my channels without internet? Would my DLNA TV be able to tune th...

Re: DVR prune episodes python script

Thanks. You reminded me I hadn't posted the bug fix. Glad it works for you. I works really well. I'll test this one - thank you. Note: An enhancement might be to auto prune the oldest shows in the DVR as space is required to always keep 3 or X hours of recording space available. Also to have a list...

Re: Can the Add a DateTimeOnly rule API be used without a Series ID?

SD's API works BY SERIES... nothing you can do about that (until such changes). Appreciate the level set here! I don't quite understand the API yet, I'll have to practice these knowing I need the series ID. Currently what you really want to do is make a manual recording yourself (outside of the DVR...

Re: Can the Add a DateTimeOnly rule API be used without a Series ID?

It's generally standard and is sourced from Gracenote insofar as I am aware. Thanks. So to prove that out, I'd need to look at other guides/tools to compare the series id. So the root of my question is to figure a way to make manual entries. If I do come up with a series ID without that being in th...
