HDHomerun App Windows 10 require Internet ?

Post by joelau007 » Fri Oct 11, 2019 6:10 am

Recently I lost Internet access for a day. During that time HDHomerun App Windows 10 doesn't work. It'll start with black blank screen.
Then when I got Internet back, the App works again.

Why have such a dependency on Internet ? This type of App should work locally in situations of no Internet access.

I believe it still need to call home get authorization from time to time for DRM channels. And of course for guides.

I believe some offline support was removed for the time being to work on a problem, so that might be related. Offline mode will eventually be restored (if it hasn't already been restored, as I don't recall the full details of the issue being worked on), and there are some ideas for improvements for offline mode as well, IIRC.
