HDHRQuad with MediaPortal

Post by Mike11121 » Wed May 01, 2019 7:12 pm

Hi,

Just installed my new HDHR Quad, but I have a problem with getting it to work with MediaPortal 2.
1. HDHhomeRunQuad in and running. Static IP of 192.168.0.200. HomeRun app tunes in on all 4
2. Install Plex. Plex LiveTV finds it and tunes all 4. Good so far
3. Install MP2 latest release. Server and Client installed
4. Run MPTV Configuration tool. I expected to see the HomeRun as a server here, with 4 tuners below. But, doesn't show up at all.

All this is on an Intel I5 NUC with Windows 10 (Home). Not sure why MP2 doesn't see it when everything else does.

MP uses BDA - is there a separate step to enable BDA on the HDHR?

Any thoughts appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

Did you install the full software package from SD and run hdhomerun setup or just the app?

I am not familiar with the latest/any issues with MP as its been several years since I tried it but there are various options for the BDA driver in the setup program (which is different from the app, as the app doesn't need "drivers" installed).

Genius! Thanks so much. The software even has an option for BDA configuration for MediaPortal. All on board now. I wonder why that software is never referenced in the Getting Started guide. Thanks for your help!
