Does Android TVs live channels app work with DRM

Post by Alpacapoop » Sat Nov 23, 2019 7:59 pm

I see that it integrates the HDHOMERUN app into it, I'm just curious if since it's technically pulling from the HDHR app on android tv and not using like the beta tuner feature where it's running the tuner itself if that means it can run DRM channels, like how HDHR app now supports DRM channels. Anyone have any insight into this?

if the app allows such on your android device, live channels can work with it provided the "App" is its source. The network tuner (source) option won't.

If you use the "HDHomeRun Input" in Live Channels then you should have DRM-channel support.
