Screen freezes, have to back out of app and start again


#1

New user, very pleased so far with just a couple of remaining issues. My server is;

Dell Inc. Latitude E6420 Windows Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 6.1.7601 Build 7601
CPU 4 cores / Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2620M CPU @ 2.70GHz RAM 7.96 GB 61.0% free

HdHomerun Prime 2 Units with 3 Tuners each.

My client is New Fire Stick 4K

The symptom is periodically while watching, Video and audio freeze and never continue. I have to back out from the app completely and then go back in, to get it working again.

Here are the logs from the most recent event;

First I would recommend that you set the app to Original quailty for home streaming on the DVR settings tab of the app. When you're watching on your Fire Stick, the DVR log should not say "starting transcoder".

Second there is a known issue where playback freezes. The best workaround for now is to go to the Player settings tab and change Decoder to Software.


#3

Original quality was set already for home streaming. I changed the player decoder setting to software and testing now. Thanks for the quick reply!!


#4

Starting transcoder might be because I'm also watching on a Roku?


#5

Ah ok that makes sense.


#6

Will a grid guide be coming to Roku?

We are not currently working on the Roku app. The version available is a prototype that's almost a year old. Our focus is on Apple TV, Android TV and FireTV
