Got a new chromebook for Christmas. HDhomerun app works fine other than not seeing the DVR.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Don't use a chromebook...

Many can't work at all. Some may work but require upnp (dlna) discovery of the tuners while the dvr engine isn't capable of dlna.

If your Chromebook runs Android apps, you may want to install the KODI app from the Google Play store, and activate the HDHR PVR add-on. This may allow you to manage your DVR functions from your Chromebook.

Try connecting directly to the tuner in a web browser, then try the app again. I see this behavior quite often on my phones and Fire tablets.
