Re: Channels faster than native HDHR apps when switching channels?

I am curious how do they accomplish speedy tuning. Does anybody have the details or am I going to have to sniff the network again? I see no reason why the http method could not match that. The protocol (http vs udp vs rtp/udp) does not affect the time to get first data to the PC. What's the explana...

Re: FM radio

Not a good comeback. My TV has only 1 tuner (better sensitivity, btw) and a very slick UI ;) How is the FM reception on this TV? ;) Doesn't work at all. Do not compare yourself to LG, though. They operate in a slightly different market. ;) Name your price Nick, we'll see what we can do. The kicksta...

Re: All channels have disappeared except for 4 after a channel re-scan

I am not sure why automatic rescan destroys channels already present. TiVo never does that. Rescan should only add channels not delete them. It is too disruptive. There should be a separate action/option to wipe out the existing lineup and start from scratch: scan vs wipe and scan, preferably with u...

Re: Duplicate Virtual Channels

There is a problem with the channel deduplication algorithm. It only checks for the virtual channel match and happily discards one of the channels. A better check would be to look at EPG and if there is no match add 100 to the subchannel number (or 200, 300 if there are more conflicts) Allowing an o...

Re: FM radio

If the radio allows extracting raw data(not sure why it wouldn't) it can be decoded in software. It does not. The raw sample data for demodulating TV is in the Gbps range which is why TV tuners don't output raw sample data. I think I am still missing the use case... are you looking to do something ...

Re: FM radio

Maybe SD could state if not having FM is a software or a hardware problem. The accuracy of speculations I usually hear on this board is close to 0% ;) The hardware needed to support FM radio (or HD radio) is not related to the hardware that supports digital TV. Not even the analog tuner section is ...

Channels faster than native HDHR apps when switching channels?

I wonder if this is only my experience but it seems I can switch channels faster on Channels than on HDHR own apps?

Also did SD give any thought about tuner sharing when two (or more) virtual channels requested for streaming/recording share the same physical channel?

Re: Servio and DLNA

Allowing the end user to control the availability of DLNA services on their devices would have taken care of the problem.

I know SiliconDust is not big on allowing the end users to control their devices but this actually would be a good case.

Servio and DLNA

Why is SERVIO not DLNA compatible?
