Can't watch Live TV using JRiver Media Center

Post by Jrdiandrea » Thu Nov 21, 2019 1:07 pm

I use JRiver Media Center on several different TVs throughout the house. I access Live TV via JRiver and HDHomeRun Prime. I've never had this issue before and i can figure it out.

This issue started just about 3-4 weeks ago. At first it would occur every couple mornings. Now it happens every morning and sporadically through the day. Later in the day all of a sudden i can tune into Live TV.

ISSUE: Cannot watch Live TV regardless of the channel selected.

Using JRiver Television.....

I get the following failure message;

"SetChannel Failed on Tuner Device. Please make sure the channel is valid. The parameter is incorrect."

Any suggestions?

Thank you

When you get that error, can you watch live TV using other apps like the HDHomeRun app?

I would suggest you try the HDHomeRun app. If the HDHomeRun app works but JRiver doesn't, then you would want to take that up with JRiver. If both are having problems, then we need to check the diagnostic data from the HDHomeRun.
