@nickk Fair enough. The only downside is I can't watch DRM channels in my living and I am not quite sure until when.

@nickk Fair enough. The only downside is I can't watch DRM channels in my living and I am not quite sure until when.
We all want it, some have been more patient than others. I'm still rocking WMC so I am not blocked from a fair number of channels, most of which I actively watch!

But we chose to "invest" in a very small company tackling a problem that, well, they underestimated... bigly. But unlike some other developers, some much larger, they chose instead to plow ahead and figure it out. They remain the ONLY developer even attempting to tackle this kind of solution, DRM or no DRM. Some have some out, like Plex, with vaguely similar DVRs, but they remain far less capable, even without factoring in DRM.

Am I annoyed they haven't gotten out the product they essentially promised would be delivered over a year ago? Yes. But I'm OK with it, because I see the work going into it, I see the challenges they've encountered, and it looks like they've managed to get much bigger developers to help out and get some bridges over sink holes that swallowed the road. I'm sure they are probably running at sort of a loss right now on this, having raked in a lot for a project meant to only take a year or so, and it's turned out to be a much more arduous campaign. I have to give them props and am excited to be following this product.

Yes, I've been impatient myself from time to time, but more than anything, I just wanted feedback and updates when they were silent. We're getting that much more now, and we are starting to see the fruits of their labor. And again, as we still have nothing else comparable, they are essentially building out their own new road system when no one else cared to take on the problem. Perhaps they better understood the difficulties and didn't want to get sucked into it, whereas SD underestimated them and got sucked in. And they haven't turned back, which is quite commendable.

All this from a company that made some great hardware but, previously, did not really have a good software solution in any sense of the world. HDHR View was just not good. It looks like they are righting that ship and making something worthy for all of us out here, some in need more than others. I want Windows 10 on my HTPC so bad right now, but, I can't ditch WMC due to the amount of DRM'd channels and programs from my provider. I have to wait, but that's OK.

I hate to resurrect an old thread, but I am curious if there are any changes on the AMD issue. Was it ever addressed with them?

CCC for a 1st-gen A4 didn't have the option.
CCC for a 2nd-gen A10 can be made to work - I willl need to look up the option (it isn't the deinterlacing option - that is already on by default).
I don't think CCC is available for the latest GPUs.
Not sure about GPUs in between.
I went through this thread, but couldn't find where you documented what this second option was. Can you let us know which one it is? Thanks.

Take a look at date of Post #2 and then check the date of the next 50 (approx.) posts. 100 posts in the thread.....50/50 chance of being correct. I guess I should have flipped a coin.

The 48 posts that I read were dated 2016. The date should not be debatable.

I am seeing that posts 1 through 113 were made in the year 2017 as well.

The thread was mistitled originally with the wrong year, it's only a month old.

It has already been pointed out that the title was originally incorrect. What you are seeing is just a repeat of the original incorrect title, not the date and time stamps of the actual posts. If you look below that title on each post, you will see the date/time stamps. They are all in 2017. So, you are correct, the date is not debatable. You just need to look in the right spot.

Now, back to my question. Is there anything new to report on the AMD situation? Was the issue ever reported to AMD?

Radeon R9 300 running Feb 12 2017 drivers - problem persists.

2nd-gen APU - I will find the option tonight (personal machine, requires removing the Nvidia GTX-1050 graphics card).

Nick,

I appreciate the update. I hate to keep repeating myself, but the one question that goes unanswered is whether the issue was reported to AMD. I'm not sure if you guys have that kind of access or not. If not, I'd like to see if I can find someplace to report it.

We worked with Microsoft to confirm the problem, and Microsoft, as we understand it, reported the problem to AMD.

So let me align, as this was super frustrating until I found this thread.

I had to reset my Shield as the last nVidia update bricked it. Upon resetting I can now only download the HDHomeRun DVR app, which won't let me play any encrypted channels. The old Green app is no longer available and we're now stuck waiting on Cert updates so the DVR app can play encrypted channels?

Why the heck would the Green app then be removed. It's super frustrating that now I can no longer watch the 400 channels I pay for. Can someone fill me in on the reasoning behind removing the working app and pushing forth a non-working app? Did the certifications expire on the Green app?

Thanks.
