the 20190206 stable release has the same problems , local channels abc,cbs,nbc,cw all play in slow mode ,also they all play in slow mode from the dvr for these channels . The work around , turning on ac3 passthrough turns the sound off . so that gives me the choice of no sound and good picture or slow mode with sound , not great choices... how can I roll back the stable app to the aug 29 2017 ??


check logs at 11:41 am I'll run through channels

Set the Shield surround sound to never and disable ac3 pass through on the HDHomerun app if you are not using surround sound.

Had same problem. I fixed it by uninstalling and reinstalling (vs. upgrading).

Note that if you aren't careful you will lose your recordings. Easiest workaround is to move or copy recordings out of the silicondust storage folder, then uninstall, then reinstall, the reenable DVR features, then copy the recordings back. In my case I had to MOVE not COPY because I had more recordings than I did free space. Moving and copying is pretty easy to do using X-Plore file manager.

I don't think an uninstall and reinstall changes those settings, but maybe. See my post above for my solution. I will check later on to see if surround sound causes the stutters to come back.

Easy fix is below … no need to uninstall and do anything else.

Set the Shield surround sound to never and disable ac3 pass through on the HDHomerun app if you are not using surround sound.

Yes but then you are degrading the surround sound.

If you have a surround sound capable system you can enable AC3 passthrough and set your system to auto that is the way I have it and it works. The settings I posted is if you do not have a surround system.

Had the same issue, AC3 passthrough was off. Turning on resolved it for me since I have AVR.

We are working on an update to correct the playback issues when using 6 channel PCM audio.

I don't think the issue is 6 channel PCM audio alone. As I showed in my post here, all the videos I tried are 6-channel. Only the 1080i @ 29.97fps were the recordings that stutter; 720p @ 59.94fps are okay.
