I have noticed that with Live TV, that the volume of commercials is much louder than the show being aired. It is quite jarring. It does it bad on certain channels....like Comedy Central. The commercials are at least 3x the volume of the show. I have tried the "Volume Leveling" feature on the tv that the Shield is connected to, but, does not seem to do anything. I have noticed this happen with my desktop computer, when using Emby Theater to watch Live tv....but it is only a slight difference. I wonder if it is the raw CATV stream from Xfinity...or perhaps how the tuner hardware send stream? The Xfinity cable box, tuned to the same channel, on same tv, does not do this at all. Any settings or things i can tweak with Emby or on the Shield to battle this annoyance? (There was some law passed at some point that made it illegal for commercials to be louder than the show being broadcast.)
speedingcheetah posted a topic in RokuIssue I just noticed. I press the Netflix button, or the "Home", while playing back live tv, it just switches to the Install this app screen. I relaunch Emby and reload a channel again, i notice that the sever reports that the Roku is still streaming that other channel and it is still using that tuner. If i go back into the Emby app, and stream tv again, then back out correctly, the Dashboard then updates and shows it is not streaming at all(but not until then), However, the HDHomeRun Prime tuner is still active on that channel and locked to streaming to Emby. Just locked out all 3 tuners this way. Sever restart releases it... It odd thing, the Sling and Hulu buttons, result in a Exit Emby app switch to # app bottom bar message appears. The CBS button, give different message, just simple ask if wish t Exit Emby app. The Netflix button, always just switches to Netflix(if app installed) or to the Install page. Seems to have override ability over the exit prompt confirmation. It does this in other apps to. So there is most certain something that needs work on there, detecting of the streaming being suddenly terminated, not backed out of....etc. Aside from ripping apart the remote and destroying the buttons (cant do with the home Button of cource)....how can i stop this tuner lock situation from happening. I intended to hand over this Roku to my mother...who most certainly will at some point press the buttons and not back out of tv stream correctly and lock all my tuners.... Edit: I also can make a tuner lock happen when i use the web interface on a computer, and play back live tv via the Play On function and select the Roku. If i try to change the channel via the small guide or back out of the app, the channel will not load, and the controls on the web interface no longer work. I can disconnect from Roku, but the tuner is still locked.
All, I am considering picking up an HDHomerun Prime to record and watch my cable TV channels. I don't have any Premium channels (HBO ect), but I do get up early and I can never watch most of the shows I like before having to go to bed. I am trying to figure out how much hard drive space I will need. For those using Emby TV with an HD Homerun Prime (or connect), roughly how large is an hour long HD recording? Thanks, and Happy New Years.
