No recorded shows on Chromebook

Post by pwpatter » Sat Dec 28, 2019 4:35 pm

I just bought a Samsung Chromebook to watch recorded shows. I have uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times. I can see and use live discover and tasks but recorded does not show any thing. Works fine on all other pcs tablets and phones. Any Ideas?

I believe that ChromeBook works only as an "Android viewing device," but does not have full Android capabilities, including DVR. I might also add, a ChromeBook does not have much strorage capability. However, I have Acer Chromebook and other than DVR, they work great for viewing live.

Most chromebooks are sandboxed in such a way that they rely on upnp (dlna) discovery of the tuners rather than broadcast discovery... the dvr engine does not support such so the software won't see the dvr engine.

Please try installing the latest beta record engine - it adds UPnP discovery support which may solve the problem you are seeing.

That is the first I have heard that nickk though I guess that might also explain why roku needed such.

install kodi android then Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client
Use HTTP cloud-based device discovery When set to ON the PVR will use the cloud-based backend to discover available HDHomeRun devices instead of a UDP broadcast on the local network.

I appreciate it, but I'd really rather get the native app working if possible. It works on my Android phone, so I don't really know why the Chromebook won't work.

I used to run Kodi on all of my devices (Linux and FireTV), but have gotten away from it in recent years as I stream more rather than playing downloaded and ripped content. That particular add-on works in Kodi 17 which I still had on one of my FireTVs, but I didn't see it on Kodi 18 when I installed it on the Chromebook. Perhaps I need to add a repo? Still, I'd rather just get the native SiliconDust app working if possible.
