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: 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.

Re: HDHomeRun Prime not detecting PROTECTED channels

Chromecast with google tv version is unusable. It's impossible to control with the remote unless there's a secret handbook for HDhomerun on Chromecast with Google TV. It is the same app like on any other Android TV. Zero problem for me. Up/down buttons bring out channel slice. As for Pixel phone is...

Re: HDHomeRun Prime not detecting PROTECTED channels

Android devices need to be Google certified. Chrome cast with Google TV definitely works. The trick is you need to make sure you granted location permission which in many cases doesn't popup automatically

Re: HDHomeRun Prime not detecting PROTECTED channels

Thanks. I can't even view the channels in Plex, let alone record them. How is it that TiVo supports this and my Prime device does not? This sounds like a firmware/software issue. Prime does support it, but only on DRM platforms which means Windows Media Center or HDHR app. Plex is not an CableLabs ...

Re: HDHomeRun Prime not detecting PROTECTED channels

Yes, from various reports, Cox is DRM almost all the channels. That means your only option is either TiVo or Windows Media Center. No other 3rd party solutions support DRM recording although HDHomeRun app will support viewing only. If your cable co wants to do this way, there is nothing you can do a...

That's a typical symptom when your Cable card is not properly activated on FIOS. You need call Verizon to get it resolved.

You have to test it under different load while using a oscilloscope. It is not that easy to test.

The best bet is to find a replacement power supply to see if it improves.

Re: HDHomeRun Prime compatible with new Cox upgrades?

All you need is a standalone video card. As mentioned before, H.264 + DRM + Intel integrated GPU + WMC = never will work, nor your Ceton extenders. It is well known for quite a few years now when Comcast first rolled out the similar 'upgrade'. Get an nVidia or AMD video card will solve your WMC PC p...

Re: HD HomeRun Program Guide Missing & Splitting channels?

My 2 cents: 1. Grid guide never gonna come. It has been discussed in the past million times. 2. If your ATSC 3.0 and 1.0 devices show different channel numbers, you can use 'This Channel' feature to record only on the channel of your selection. If they show the same channel numbers, you can de-selec...

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

I don't think that's the same problem: 1. The problem he refereed to is from DVB-T which usually is H.264 encoded IIRC. 2. He mentioned VLC works fine with the problem stream which seems to me that it is not a driver issue. But who knows. All I know is that XiaoMi never even bother to test MPEG2 pla...

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

The problem with MPEG2 issue may not affect all cable providers. And if you are on Comcast, you probably will never encounter it as Comcast use H.264 codec instead.

What is MiBox 4? I only know two office Mi Boxes in US: Mi Box 3 and MiBox S. Mi Box 4 never officially released in US.

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...
