Re: HDHomerun second tuner 0.29 problem

I have an HDHomerun Quatro, on v30. I did my configuration a long time ago, so I find it difficult to answer your questions on the exact method of doing the config.

The result, however, is that I have 2x4 = 8 encoders and can record several shows simultaneously.

Hope this helps.

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

After struggling with this for a while, I have decided to ditch the Raspberry Pi 4 and the Flirc, and go back to the NUC as my frontend.

I am able to set up the Logitech Harmony remote using a MythTV wiki page:

https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/MyHarmony

and find that it works quite well.

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

I now have a Logitech 665 remote which I bought to help get the Flirc+MythTV set up. Given the hype about Logitech Harmony remotes and the Flirc, I am surprised at how little info there is on getting things set up. The Flirc website seems practically useless. The Logitech Harmony site is predictable...

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

Before I bought this Raspberry Pi 4, my frontend was a NUC: which has an IR detector, but no CEC. With the Pi, CEC, no IR. So I bought a Flirc. Given the glowing statements about this gadget, I thought my worries were over. Indeed, running thru up-left-down... initial button configuration lets the r...

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

Whoops! I don't understand this, but somehow in repeatedly changing different settings, suddenly the lower resolution configuration took. Now I have:

$ tvservice -s
state 0xa [HDMI CEA (16) RGB lim 16:9], 1920x1080 @ 60.00Hz, progressive

and at this setting there is no audio delay problem.

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

It doesn't seem that many attempts at configuration "take." For example, one doc says to modify /boot/config.txt with: hdmi_force_hotplug=1 hdmi_group=1 hdmi_mode=16 but doing such only results in a change in "preferred": tvservice -m CEA Group CEA has 22 modes: mode 1: 640x480 @ 60Hz 4:3, clock:25M...

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

Maybe the source of the problem is that the display is NOT going at 1080p. tvservice -s gives: state 0xa [HDMI CUSTOM RGB lim 16:9], 3840x2160 @ 30.00Hz, progressive and tvservice -m CEA yields: Group CEA has 22 modes: mode 1: 640x480 @ 60Hz 4:3, clock:25MHz progressive mode 2: 720x480 @ 60Hz 4:3, c...

Frontend on raspberry pi 4

I am setting up a new frontend on a raspberry pi 4 with 4G ram. I am running raspian buster and mythtv-light. Something is very wrong with sound sync, whereas the usual playback menu option allows one to adjust millisecond audio timing, I think in my case the sound leads the image several seconds. A...

So I bought a Silicon Dust Servio, now what?

Recently I bought a Silicon Dust (SD) Servio, this is SD's newly introduced recording device. I think it's basically just a NAS with a SD dedicated software/hardware interface. (It has a 2T drive.) I just got it, so far after some fiddling I am able to record OTA TV on my SD Quattro tuner using my A...

Re: Audio delay with hdmi at start of playback

Years ago I had this problem, thought it was a malfunction of my HDHomerun tuner. I filed a ticket with Silicon Dust, they had me run some tests, then they told me they thought it was a pre-failure problem with my recordings hard drive. I replaced the drive, and lo and behold: the problem went away....

Re: HDHomeRun Quattro

I have a Quattro, works well, currently on v30 of MythTV. I'm not expert on HDHomerun devices, but I have been using them for years. As far as I know, they must have an IP address, which could be acquired by DHCP. In my case I give the device a fixed IP by address reservation on my router. I believe...

Re: HDHomeRun Premium TV

It appears Silicon Dust is shutting down its "Premium TV" service. See, for example: https://forum.silicondust.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=129&t=69262 The company says it is "... not done innovating. We are excited about upcoming plans for improving the cord cutting and cord shaving experiences." Sad....

Re: HDHOMERUN Quattro tuner (HDHR5-4US)

I have a Quatro tuner and am running v30 with no problems. Do you have the latest firmware on the HDHomerun? I have 20180817.

Hope this helps.
