Windows 10 browser not playing channels


#1

I am a new user and I sit at a Win 10 laptop a lot and would like to watch TV.
I can't get the web interface to display channels or recordings. I tried fire fox, edge, and chrome. Is there an app or am I not setting it up properly?

Thanks

I looked in the log and every time it tries to play a channel it shows 192.168.1.131. This is not my server address or my HDHomeRun Connect address.


#3

What does it show underneath the player?


#4

Transcoder starting.


#5

Try changing the transcoder setting to Software


#6

It is set to Software, No other option.

Deinterlacer is Blend or Linear (set to Blend) Tried it both ways.


#7

What are the messages in the log

Can you copy/paste the OS/CPU section at the top of the DVR settings page

I had a smaller Synology box with 256MB I tried first and the messages were the same.


#12

The cpu on that NAS is not capable of transcoding, which is required for viewing in a browser. You need a powerful Intel cpu for web based and remote viewing to work.


#13

That's a shame. It can play on a small phone or table but not on a powerful PC.

Are they working in an app for Windows?


#14

Browsers can not play the video format that comes straight off of the HDHomeRun. The Channels apps can because we have a custom video player rendering the video.

Because of this, the video has to be transcoded to a format that browsers CAN play.


#15

Are they working on an app for windows?


#16

We are not currently working on a native windows app, sorry. There are only two of us and only so many apps we can build at the same time.
