Pixilation on Live TV

Post by kbfcub »

I posted recently on here about an issue with signal quality, which I thought had been solved with the purchase of filters I was advised on here to get. Now I am having an issue with video pixilation on HD Channels. Below is 2 clips I've uploaded to Youtube to demonstrate the issue, I'm hoping someone will be able to suggest something I can try to resolve this issue.

I am currently using Mediaportal 1.24 (Final release)


I have had a look at the System Log available through the browser and it doesn't give much information to go by but if it will help, I'd gladly upload it.

Otherwise if I can't get this issue resolved I may have to return my HDHomeRun Quatro (which I've only had since May 2020) and look at alternative Network tuners.

Try disabling the HDHomeRun DVR that is running on one of your Windows PC, since you don't appear to have a DVR subscription, so it might have been activated by mistake:

Open the HDHomeRun Setup utility, click on the "DVR" tab, make sure "Use this PC for recordings" is unchecked, then click "Apply".
