This is my first post here at AVS Forum, so I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this question.
The time shift function of my HomeWorx HW-150PVR is not working, and I don't understand why.
I''m somewhat new to the HW-150PVR, but I've read the manual and a lot of posts online, so I don't understand why not.
I have a 500GB hard drive attached to the unit via USB (formatted to FAT32) and I've set the time shift capacity to 4GB (the maximum)…
But when I'm watching a program and press the "Play" button on the remote to activate Time Shift as described in the manual, nothing happens. No message on screen, nothing.
**Recording** programs works just fine… but using the "Play" button to use time shift doesn't work at all.
Am I doing something wrong? What's going on?
Thank you for any help you may provide!
Seems to me from my experimentation of feeding the HDMI output to a computer capture card and having the digital audio coax go to my 5.1 audio receiver, the only audio mode that delivered Dolby digital AC3 to the audio receiver was the setting designated "PCM" in the menus--a non-obvious setting. Other settings changed the recognition done by my receiver as "non-5.1" audio.
The originating channel may have complete control over what audio gets into the broadcast, and therefore, the recording. 3 streams of audio I found in one recording had the 6-channel stream be much more quiet than the stereo other two audio streams. I had to increase the volume level of my computer playback of the video files to be +30 to +40% higher when the 6-channel audio stream was selected versus the other two stereo streams.
