Re: No Devices Found

The only way to test power supply problem is test with another known good power supply.

Re: noob question - linux setup

1. You need DVR subscription to record. 2. You will need a client app to view live TV, recordings and schedule recording. What you installed is just a recording engine, nothing else. Client app is how you view different channels. Recording engine only records what client app tells it to record. I do...

Re: HDHomerun Connect 4K Windows 10 issues

There is a long thread about this MEIDA_ENGINE error on Win10. It is not specifically the problem of your tuner but rather anyone who runs Win10 app and switch channels. I believe last time I read, SD is still investigating it.

Re: No Audio on Roku App (Still - Have done my research)

Majority of Roku devices don't have AC3 decoder which unfortunately is what all US TV channels broadcasting with. You MUST have a device that can decode AC3 connected to Roku. In addition, Roku devices also can't handle most cable channels (without DRM), can't support legacy HDHR tuners. All these m...

Re: Legacy dual-tuner unit not visible from Roku box, works on other devices

OK, so apparently I have an incompatible HDHR unit. And incompetent stream device for HDHR. Roku devices are the worst kind among all other streaming devices when it comes to HDHR usage due to its huge limitation of app capability. Over 90% of the channels that my Prime outputs can't be viewed on R...

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

Same here. I also found out that my $30 Dynalink Android TV box bought last year has much better TV PQ than MiBox 3.

Re: Sony Android TV HDHomeRun App FF issues

Good idea, that is done using the hdhr set up app, correct? Depends on where the DVR is installed. See above. There isn't inherent problem from Sony Android TV. I have the latest Sony TV and it works fine. So, you need to pay attention to your DVR installation, especially the one on the NAS drive.

Re: Sony Android TV HDHomeRun App FF issues

Make sure your DVR is updated to match the new app. I have encountered similar problem in the past. I ended up re-install the DVR engine.

Re: which samsung TV support DRM over DNLA?

So this works for DRM, nothing else needed? Would the LAN adapter I have for fireTV stick work with it? It plugs into FireTV stick via micro USB. The ethernet cable plugs into it and it also has female micro USB where the power adapter plugs in. I am wired pretty well so prefer that as my wireless ...

Re: which samsung TV support DRM over DNLA?

You don't have to side load it at all. It is just there is no Play Store app (the feature is still there but integrated into the new launcher). So, find it is a little bit more effort. You can install it remotely from a PC using play store web page as well.

Re: which samsung TV support DRM over DNLA?

Correct, F models, I have 5 of them (F71900) at home, are useless as it doesn't support the encryption required for DRM viewing. Not to mention their picture quality is atrocious. J models I have is the base model so it doesn't even support DLNA IIRC. The only later model Samsung I have is 40MU6290 ...

Re: Sideload on samsung tv

There is no app for Samsung TV. Samsung actively blocked SD's past effort to make an app using its RUI infrastructure. As a result, SD no longer develops anything for Samsung and its Tizen OS (not an Android platform). You will need to buy an external streamer for that. Or you can use the UPnP featu...

Re: HDHomeRun Prime not detecting PROTECTED channels

If all your channels are DRM protected, there is no reason to purchase the DVR because it will not be able to record DRM channels.
