Intel Chips are Getting Slower

The patches for Meltdown, Spectre and now ZombieLoad are making the chips run slower. Just about every unpatched computer with an Intel chip dating back to 2011 is vulnerable. According to multiple sources, Intel has indicated the patch for ZombieLoad would impact performance by about three to nine ...

Re: What channel frequency do I use for RCN on a HDHomerun Prime tuner

Don't scan for channels in MythTV when using a HDHomeRun Prime. Instead, use the Prime's web page interface using an internet browser to scan for channels. Then, use Schedules Direct or mythfilldatabase to add all channels to MythTV. The encrypted channels will work with MythTV if the copy protectio...

Re: Xubuntu 16.04 and Mythbuntu 16.04 End of Life This Month

I have always opted for Xubuntu for my MythTV systems. For my new back+frontend box, I opted this time for Ubuntu 18.04 using the minimal install option due to the longer service life. I hope it goes smoothly. I am using an Asus board installed in a modified TiVo Roamio case with a 7th generation i3...

Re: QAM Channels

MythTV works with encrypted QAM using a cablecard tuner if the copy protection flag is set to copy freely. In general, Comcast channels other than the premium channels like HBO are this way and work with MythTV.

Re: Xfinity OnDemand App for Tivo Sunset

Nope. If you are on Linux, and you want to stream on-demand content from Comcast, you could probably do it using Firefox Quantum as mentioned here.

Re: Suggested Media Providers

The cablecard fee without a credit is possible if your package does not include a box. The requirement to have a set-top box is not correct with Verizon Fios. Did the customer rep tell you the reason? It is much more likely that the rep incorrectly said that a box is required. With very few exceptio...

Re: Suggested Media Providers

I currently do not use OTA. But, if I did, combining it with SiliconDust premium TV seemed like a great idea by SiliconDust. I hate to see it canceled. Equipment rentals? Can you elaborate? I have Comcast with one cablecard and no other equipment. I get a credit for using the cablecard, and there ar...

Re: Intel NUC - Fail

Have you taken a look at https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/VAAPI? Did you set Painter to Auto or OpenGL and not Qt in MythFrontend -> Setup -> Appearance?

Re: Running a browser, remote only control, from Frontend?

I have done this with YouTube but never with Netflix. Add a Menu Button in MythTV That Launches YouTube I don't know if it is possible to use Kodi to view Netflix. If it is, I think you can still launch Kodi from within MythTV as shown in this somewhat old YouTube video (when Kodi was called XBMC).

SiliconDust is expected to release a new six tuner model sometime in 2019 according them. Hauppauge has two and three tuner models available now.
