HDHomeRun Prime with Poporn hour? DVR with popcorn hour player
Hello.

I was wondering if anyone is using the HDHomeRun Prime that uses a cable card to record TV with Windows 7.

My understanding is that the HDHomeRun Prime with cablecard has some kind of DRM situation or unique file format going on that locked it into Windows 7 PC.

However there might be some kind of software that can convert the files so that it will be able to be played with Popcorn hour?

I am trying to piece together information from various sources.

Can anyone tell me if they have used the HDHomeRun Prime( with cable card) to record files than used a Popcorn hour to watch those recorded file?

Thanks for your help.

P.S.
Here is a reference link to the DVR recording device in question: http://www.silicondust.com/products/hdhomerun/prime/

RE: HDHomeRun Prime with Poporn hour? DVR with popcorn hour player
I'm not using the HDHR Prime (I'm using a Ceton InfiniTV 4), but I'm remuxing my WTV files to MPG files without commercials using Video Redo (http://www.videoredo.com/en/index.htm). The thing I love about Video Redo is it doesn't re-encode the audio and/or video unless it's necessary, so my MPEG-2/AC3 TV recordings convert to MPG within a minute or two and playback on my C-200 perfectly. I could convert to TS, M2TS, or MKV just as easily; I choose MPG simply to help me identify which files are TV recordings and which are DVD/Blu-ray rips (I use MKV for rips). You can also re-encode your files to several other different codecs/containers.

If you're looking for something free and don't care about removing the commercials, then you can use VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc). VLC has a Convert/Save option in the Media menu that I used in the past to convert my WTV recordings to MPG. I made a new settings profile with the following options: Encapsulation = MPEG-PS, Video Codec = Video & Keep original video track, Audio = Audio & Keep original audio track. Give it a try and see if it works for you.

Are you using Silicon Dust home run prime( with a cable card) or recording with one of the older products( without a cable card) ?

The entire issue seem to be that recorders which use cable cards have a lot of restrictions of them.

I am very interested in knowing if you are getting it into this " .TS" format using the home run prime( with cable card)

Thanks again for all your help!!

That is great information. Do you know if any of these programs are able to do this in a batch process or do you have to select each individual file at a time?

In any event, its great to know there is a way to get the video to work on the popcorn hour.

I enjoy watching TV so much better on my actual TV( instead of on my computer screen)

Thanks again!!

RE: HDHomeRun Prime with Poporn hour? DVR with popcorn hour player
Video Redo definitely has some batch processing options built-in, but I personally haven't tried them; I tend to work on my files one-by-one to make sure the commercials get cut out properly. Video Redo offers a 15-day free trial of their software and if you request a trial key, there are no restrictions during those 15 days.

VLC doesn't have any built-in batch processing that I know of, but it does have a ton of command-line options, so you could create a batch file that runs the same VLC command to process several files.

Yes I am Running HDHomerun Prime w/cable card. I also have one of the older Dual tuner HDHomerun's that I use for Unencrypted QAM channels. I use NextPvr with both and it does a great job. Any channel that I am subscribed to on the cable I can record on the Prime to .ts that play on my A-100, C-200 And A-300 without having to do anything with the recorded files. You can use different encoders to record to other formats. It is a Free Program. Documentation is here http://www.gbpvr.com/nwiki/pmwiki.php?n=....GuidePlus and they have an active forum http://forums.gbpvr.com/

RE: HDHomeRun Prime with Poporn hour? DVR with popcorn hour player
NextPVR natively has some Hauppauge DVR 2650 and HDHR Prime DVR support and I wrote a plugin to SageDCT which also supports them plus the Ceton USB and internal tuners. There are restrictions they only record copy freely channels, and sometimes don't set copy freely properly and it takes a few phone calls, but the files that are created are .ts files that can be played on the PCH 110 even with LiveTV without remuxing. I haven't tested these files on the 200 series.
