Re: New HTCP setup

First I want to apologize, I was quite tired when I made that last post and now realize I repeated myself a bit from earlier posts. For some reason if TV Mosaic starts a recording the machine is woken up and stays awake for the duration of that recording. However, if I want to use the tuners to watc...

Re: New HTCP setup

Thank you for getting back to that. A dedicated Windows machine running as a server for all my media, TV Mosaic and my tuners comes more and more to mind. @Maverickz: What do you see as the main advantage of the Fire TV box over an Android TV box? And what type of tuners do you use? I have had my F...

Re: Remove commercials

If I get the remove commercials to work...? You can get commercial removal to somewhat work, but don't ever expect it to be 100%, 100% of the time. You will have to live with it sometimes leaving in some commercials (usually ads for other shows on the network) and occasionally cutting out some smal...

Re: New HTCP setup

Actually my media server is running Windows Server 2012 R2. I use Win Server because I also use it for DHCP, Email Server, Web Server, and a central file Server for PC backups.

Re: Best low power client?

There should be a way to sideload the TVM app on the TV as long as it is an actual Android TV or even one of the new Fire TV's. I think it should work on specific Samsung TV with Android, Sony, and Toshiba TV's as well as some of the cheaper Android TV brands. I don't think it will work on LG's (las...

Re: Android TV client

Press the Select button once to bring up the Pause/Play bar, then (with the Pause/Play bar still displayed) press and hold UP for a couple of seconds.

Re: TVMosaic (NOT Live) for Amazon FireTV

That's a typical bummer from Amazon, I wonder when they will eventually get sued for that apparent garden walling. Anyway, thanks for the advise, will use the Live app instead then, not too many compromises. You could always get it from Google Play on an Android device. and then side load it to the...

Re: New HTCP setup

You do not need a good video card to do transcoding quickly. You may, of course, but Intel CPU generation 6 or newer will do the job equally good. I did not know that. My server is running a Xeon E3-1225 v3 which is Haswell (4th gen) based and while it does do encoding it was very slow until I drop...

Re: New HTCP setup

You didn't mention if you do any transcoding of the recorded files or not. If you do, I don't really see any way to reduce power since to do transcoding quickly and efficiently you need a good Video card, with means a desktop style PC and all the power requirements that go with it. If you do not do ...

Re: TV Mosaic Android App recording

Yes you can record a show currently in progress, BUT you have to go back to the Guide page to do it. So you lose the 1 or 2 seconds that it takes to exit back out to the guide, select the show, then select record. On a side note, you didn't need to sideload TV-M to you AFTV Stick. The TV-M app is av...
