The mythtv-setup gui is significantly different to the official documentation Setup_Capture_Cards->Card_type:_HDHomeRun_networked_tuner. I see no ability to enter a manual ip (or tuner number). The only supported setup seems to "automatic" which works, but how do you handle multiple tuners this way?
I added 4 tuners and edited the video device field int database entry, so now I have tuners (from mythweb):
This seems to work OK. I tried allowing multiple recordings from each tuner but that didn't end well. It seems to result in recordings failing. Also, going into the mythtv-setup capture card configuration menu again, immediately clears the tuner specifier suffix, so the configuration reverts to 4 tuners all with video device 125296FD.Encoder 8 [ HDHOMERUN : 125296FD-0 ] is local on mythmaster and is not recording.
Encoder 9 [ HDHOMERUN : 125296FD-1 ] is local on mythmaster and is not recording.
Encoder 10 [ HDHOMERUN : 125296FD-2 ] is local on mythmaster and is not recording.
Encoder 20 [ HDHOMERUN : 125296FD-3 ] is local on mythmaster and is not recording.
So the questions are:
- How can you manually configure tuners? I much prefer specifying an IP address (or preferably a fqdn) to UPnP.
- With automatic configuration, is it even possible to use all 4 tuners?
- With automatic configuration, is it possible to set scheduling and live tv priorities separately for the tuners?
- Is it possible to do multiple recordings from a each tuner? Does the device even permit this?
