2 HDHomeRuns on same network

Post by mrquietus »

I upgraded to some Ubiquiti network gear in the past year and it has a function to disable ports on port by port basis, as well as many other functions. I have my old Quatro and the new one on the same network. With both online, all my clients were locking into the old Quatro. So now I have just disabled the port to be able to do testing with the 4K Quatro. Not a very elegant solution and doesn't help if you have needs for stable ATSC1 for recordings, etc. Just wanted to post this in case others run into this problem. You can of course use many different methods here but your device might have a port disable feature, or you could control power with various home-kit (home automation/control) to control power status to your tuner, etc. I think I have seen option to choose a tuner in some HDHomerun clients, but cannot recall which and not certain how well this works.
