Playback issues - bburns36

Post by bburns36 » Sat Feb 01, 2020 5:45 pm

Not to bring this thread back from the dead but I am dealing with an issue with my HDHR-US after updating to the latest beta firmware.

I lost a couple channels and I'm not sure what's up with them, if they're somehow DRM protected and this firmware doesn't decode it, or what...

I just get a blank stream when I try playing them, and as far as I know there's no way to downgrade firmware. This started instantly after I updated. Help please! :-o

Proper thing to go is not resurrect old threads but start a new one. A hdhr-us doesn't have any drm support nor does it even have encrypted support if you really meant hdhr-us.

Typically the issue isn't the firmware but the reboot of the device after such update.

Try running the channel scan from the web interface. http://my.hdhomerun.com/ I was so used to using the Windows HDHomeRun setup utility for running channel scans and only used the web interface to check system status but the last time I lost DRM channels I ran a channel scan using the web interface and it found my DRM channels when the Windows setup utility wouldn't.

That wouldn't be possible on a HDHR-US as the scan must be run on the windows setup. So what is first needed is the actual tuner model.

Topic split.

Please run a channel scan in the HDHomeRun Setup program and make sure it finds your channels.
