Are you sure you mean encode? It would help if you state the issue you are having or what you are trying to accomplish.

The tuners don't care what codec the source is, it is the responsibility of the client to decode... none of the tuners for dvb transcode. It usually wouldn't make sense for a transcoding dvb tuner as typically the source is already h.264 or h.265 for hd material in most areas, unlike the US where ATSC is mpeg2. Even if the tuner did transcode (such as the extend), the output would still be a ts.

Check out a program called mcebuddy. It re-encodes a file after it was recorded to the desired format automatically.

of course decode :), the signal in my country is encoded with mpeg-4, therefore I wonder if the homerun connect duo for eu countries is a good choice. I run Plex on NAS (QNAP), if you say the client does the decoding job, I guess this is where I have to search for answers.

thanks!

Confirming, mpeg4/h.264 video will play on all HDHomeRun app platforms.

thank you Nick! good news.

when you write all platforms - does it include the HDHR5-2DT(UK), (black square-shaped box dedicated for GB market)? or should I go for EU version of HD HomeRun Connect?

HDHR4-2DT, HDHR5-2DT, and HDHR5-4DT all support MPEG2, H.264 (MPEG4/AVC), and H.265 (HEVC) when broadcast via DVB-T or DVB-T2. HDHR5-2DT and 4DT are currently available in the UK only, but will be available to the rest of Europe in the next couple weeks.

The hardware inside is the same except for the mains plug on the power adapter.
