No sound on Windows 7

Post by wssddc » Fri Apr 26, 2019 4:18 pm

I recently got a used prime off eBay. Mostly it's working, but I've not been able to get sound from the HDHomeRun app on the four Windows 7 machines I've tried.

Sound does work with
Windows Media Center on Win/7
VLC on Win/7
HDHomeRun app on Win/10
Samsung smart TV
HDHomeRun app on 2 Android phones and an Android tablet

Any suggestions? Obviously it's not a big problem since I've got options that work.

You need an ac3 codec/filter as the one in win 7 only licensed to work in microsoft software (wmc).
