Nvidia Shield, Remove PC app before new install?

Post by carlRcraw » Wed Sep 11, 2019 6:38 am

Hi,

I've been using HDHomeRun on my PC for years.

I now have an Nvidia Shield that I want to use as the server and DVR storage (because it stays online all the time, whereas my PC is often turned off).

1) Should I remove the PC software before I load the Nvidia Shield install?

2) In general should one remove the old install of software on a hardware platform before setting up a new hardware platform?

(I read the Nvidia Shield support page and this issue was not discussed.)

Thanks for your help.

Carl

No need to remove the software, just go into HDHomeRun Setup and uncheck the box to use the PC for recording and click OK, then set up the new DVR on the Shield.
