Post by mski »

What does "support discovery via multicast" mean? Are there any examples on how multicast discover would work?

Huh, MDNS was a 20200225 feature. 8 months later they added "support discovery via multicast" but I can't quite wrap my head around what that means.

We added support for doing HDHomeRun device discovery (port 65001) via multicast 239.255.255.250.
