SichboPVR with HDHomerun tuner

Post by radpet » Mon Jan 20, 2020 3:51 pm

Has anyone got SichboPVR to view TV shows with HDHomerun tuners? This is freeware from Sichbo Interactive in Nova Scotia. It recognizes and scans the tuners with a fairly easy setup. I cannot get it to open the tuners and view the video. I downloaded SichboPVR version 3.1.77 and have an HDHR Connect-2 and an HDHR Extend-2.

The HDHomerun is not listed in their list of ATSC tuners. Post a query on the bottom of their Support page.
NextPVR works well. ;)

I think I've heard of people using it, but that's the extent of my recollection. You'll probably need to set the BDA Compatibility Mode in HDHomeRun Setup to JRiver for it to work.

SichboPVR does look interesting. I gave it a try but it's looking for a URL to a root.xml. I'm to be able to find it. Feeding it http://{ip of HDHR3-US}/lineup.xml doesn't work. I think Sichbo is looking for something that describes the tuner device, not the lineup at this stage of the setup. If anyone has got this working please reply with what you're using as the root.xml URL.
