Video/audio issues on Chromecast Google TV 0607 release

Post by thedoomster »

I updated HDHOMERUN app to 0607 and still seeing some issues in my testing (HDHR Prime, 405 channels). I have AC3 passthu ON. Testing by changing channels up and down. No real pattern although it often appears on the 2nd or 3rd channel change from a good channel, but not always. Pattern is hard to find. Video freezes, then audio stops, then screen goes black, then frozen video returns with audio (sometimes not and sometimes not in that order) - repeat. Strangely enough, it is far worse on non-DRM channels 1-11. On DRM channels it happens less often and always seems to recover by itself. Navigating out of Live TV and back fixes it until channel is changed. I also restarted Google TV with no effect.

After updating, I could not repeat these issues on (Sony) Android TV 8.

Let me know if there's anything else I can provide.

I have Diagnostics ON - 131CC070

Works fine for me. But I don't have Tuning Adapters. That sounds like the TA locks up after a few quick channels changes (which I encountered back in the days using WMC). Your old Sony TV maybe too slow to induce the TA lock up.

Just unplugged the TA and tested again. Same thing on the third channel (non-DRM) I tried. But hey, a quick FF straightens it out, the video is buttery smooth and the 5.1 sound awesome so I can live with it if I have to. I watch DRM channels mostly anyway.

If you removed TA, some channels won't be accessible :)

We have confirmed an issue on Chromecast with Google TV dongles.
