I have four Mi Box 4's using Live channels with two HD Homerun Primes and they all work fine together. If I missed it in the thread I apologize, but I did have an issue after an OS upgrade on the Mi Box initially. I downloaded the HD Homerun android app, then I cleared the cache on Live Channels and had it find the HD Homerun Prime tuners and set everything up again. It's been working since then. When I use Live Channels, it shows the HD icon along with the channel number now.

The problem with MPEG2 issue may not affect all cable providers. And if you are on Comcast, you probably will never encounter it as Comcast use H.264 codec instead.

What is MiBox 4? I only know two office Mi Boxes in US: Mi Box 3 and MiBox S. Mi Box 4 never officially released in US.

My MiBox 3 is still totally useless. I guess that blacklist thing from Ned is not to be.

It's a difficult decision because it is only affecting some MPEG2 content and not others. Forcing software decoding will decrease deinterlacing quality, so there's a tradeoff. Ive been whispering in the boss's ear that we should put in a switch that the user can set, but he has some concerns about that as well. I'll bring it up again and see what he says.

I would love to see a fix no matter how klugey. I have three MiBox 3s, and since the update to the operating system, some channels pixellate/don't interlace and others are fine when in use with the HDHR feed. I also have one MiBox S; it had no problems with the system update.

I second that! Would really like to be able to use this box again.
