Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

What's the general consensus, are we trusting Matrix now or waiting until at least .1 or .2? I'm afraid of breaking all the things because of the upgrade and having a lot of trouble reverting because I use a shared database.

Re: Factory Reset CONNECT 4k

There's nothing to reset as there's nothing stored on the device except the channel lineup, which gets reset every time you run a new scan. Check the Send diagnostic information box on the System Menu page, run a channel scan, then post back with the device ID so SD can look at your logs and determi...

Re: Suggestion: Audio Only Mode

This is a problem better solved by hardware, even if you consider it "clunky". I have a family member who has hearing issues that haven't yet reached the hearing aid stage, and I set them up with https://www.amazon.com/Avantree-Headphones-Earphones-Bluetooth-Transmitter/dp/B07WRXD37V/. In addition t...

Re: Shockingly Bad Support

El Capitan went EOS in Fall 2018 and has accumulated several dozen unpatched remotely-exploitable root-level vulnerabilities. Don't encourage people to keep running it on a network.

Re: Trying to remote support a dvb-t2 quad

Each DVR subscription needs to be under a separate email address. SD will refund DVR subscriptions within 30 days of purchase if you decide it doesn't meet your needs.

Re: HDHomeRun Prime 3 Not Detecting all Channels

Unfortunately you're just at a point where you'll have to keep calling until you find someone who knows what the hell they're doing and can get the card set up properly. Until it says Con: Yes, there's no chance of it working. Maybe ask them to go one step at a time through the process and check to ...

Re: Channels displayed only in HDHomeRun Setup App

Newer versions that have the channel scan function built in (EXPAND/CONNECT models) will generate fake channel numbers if the provider is not sending any, so they will work in the app. You won't have guide data for most channels since SD doesn't have guide data for whichever country you're in (looks...

Re: ATSC 3.0: Nashville TN OTA

I'm curious how involved Meredith even was in Portland. Their master control for the entire west coast, including Portland, was run out of KPHO (Phoenix) until earlier this year when they shut it down and consolidated the entire country into WGCL's facility in Atlanta. If they had just decided to ma...

Re: Channels displayed only in HDHomeRun Setup App

Legacy devices will only work in the HDHomeRun app when used with a service (either antenna or cable) that sends both channel numbers and channel names. Your cable provider apparently does not send channel numbers, so it won't work.

Re: HDHomeRun Prime 3 Not Detecting all Channels

The first card wouldn't work because it needs a firmware update. The 0201 version is like 14 years old and doesn't support current (by which I mean, published in like 2008) security standards. It has to be updated to any version after that. 0625 is the most common, and that's what your other card ha...

Re: RF Channel has Signal and 100% Signal Quality, but no Virtual Channels channels

You'd usually see the symbol quality getting hammered if it was an interference issue. They may not have a choice. If you're in a mountainous part of the country and that's a translator, most of those are installed on top of mountains at the end of a lot of roads that don't get plowed, so if somethi...

Re: Recording DRM

You know what, my sentiments exactly. Like a sucker, I had recently paid $35 for the DVR service and found out it does not allow recording of the DRM protected channels. What a disappointment. It does no better than my Plex Media Server DVR which does all the same things basically as this useless $...

Re: CONNECT 4K HD issue

Have you tried watching using the HDHomeRun app on something other than the Mac? If the SD channels work then it's probably not a device issue, but rather something somewhere on the network connection (run a packet loss test and see if you get dots or n's) or the decoding on the Mac. Hardwiring is i...

Re: RF Channel has Signal and 100% Signal Quality, but no Virtual Channels channels

Does that channel work on anything else? What you describe suggests there's no data feeding the station's transmitter so it's just broadcasting null packets (the broadcast equivalent of packing peanuts).

Re: Signal and Symbol Quality bouncing between none and 100%

You probably need a high pass filter. Do a search for "tvi high pass filter" and see if you can find one somewhere that isn't a pain to ship to Ireland. They used to be readily available in the UK for about £10 and no problem shipping to Ireland, but I don't know what it's like post-Brexit.
