Anyone have a working setup for DRM channels?
Hello all, trying to figure out if I am completely wasting my time on this thing (because thats what it feels like).
After what I thought was a great deal of research, I bought the HDHomerun Prime, and picked up a cable card from my provider (Optimum), in the hopes of eliminating one or more DVR rentals from my account.
I got the thing initialized, it finds all the channels, but Optimum sets 90% with DRM. So far the only thing giving me ANY success to even watch is a Windows 7 Media Center PC, but I can't get anything better than SD quality out of it for some reason (processor IS a bit taxed when streaming hulu/netflix/amazon). I had some marginal success getting samples recorded, but quality was awful.
I've tried my Samsung Tablet (unable to play channel if DRM), firebox (sideloaded homerun app but the interface is crap without touchscreen, and I don't think that worked either), HTC M8 phone (unable to play if DRM).
So what else can I buy to be able to watch and record the stations I am already paying for? I'm thinking xbox one from what I've read but before I go plunk down for another device can anyone tell me definitively if they have this combo working with te HDHomerun?
thanks for any advice!
