Not sure if this helps but I noticed that I am getting the stutter only when I uncheck the “use ac3 pass through” option in the menu. I need this for my set up so hopefully can be fixed but it must be a pass through issue?

If you are not using surround sound have you tried to set the Shield sound to never ?

How do I set the Sheild sound to never? Is that in the Shield settings?

Thanks! I can confirm that if you uncheck 'use AC3 passthrough', every thing goes to hell.
Both just take the bits they get, it is not uncommon for providers to have some sync issues but it is also up to whatever plays it back to handle things that may be unexpected so it is usually important to get samples of such things to those developers and in some cases the manufacturer of the device playing it back.

I'm finding mixed results based on the recording I'm playing on my Nvidia Shield from within HDHomeRun DVR app. I'm running the App that was updated on Feb 6.

UPDATE: On all recordings, I am using two HDHomerun Extends, both configured to transcode on Heavy setting.
UPDATE2: If I set the Shield from Surround Sound: Auto to Surround Sound: Never, the files below that stutter do not. Also, if I go to the HDHomeRun advanced settings and set "Use AC3 passthrough when possible" when Surround Sound is set to Auto, this also fixes the stutters.

NOTE:
The Shield surround sound setting is in: Settings (gear in top-right on home screen)-> Display&Sound -> Advanced Settings -> Surround Sound. The HDHomeRun advanced settings is accessed by pressing play/paus 13e times.

Below are media info data on files that work fine and files that stutter:

Hello

Sorry for these issues you are experiencing.
@321liftoff are you able to provide the stuttering recording via a dropbox link or similar?

Thanks

@PghCordCutter

Could you enable diagnostics in the app (play/pause 13 times to access settings menu) then check the remote diagnostics box is on.
Replicate the issue.
Note the time/date the moment the issue occurred.
Send me the device id with the time/date so I can see what happened around the time the playback stopped.

Thanks

Lost my 720p video signal when running hdhomerun app via nvidea shield. Audio coming thru but video signal is no longer compatible on tv. Any help for a work around is appreciated. Will try and get the 2018 hdhomerun version and will update.

Uninstalled the current apk 20190123a and reinstalled my older version 20180726b apk and got my 720p video back. So all is good when running the older version. Set app to not auto install updates and I should be good for awhile until SiliconDust can provide a resolution with the new update version.
