When I travel on holiday, I like to take my laptop with me and use Emby to records programing in the places I visit.  It is a hit and miss.  Sometimes the recordings using Hauppauge WinTV-dualHD dual tuner are perfect, other times they are choppy as if a weak signal with squares and loss of complete signal.  Yet, when I use the Hauppauge WinTV-dualHD dual tuner WINTV software, the same channels Emby is recording or trying to record are crystal clear.  I put them side by side and can watch the WINTV but Emby is choppy at best.  This seems to happen on certain channels and cannot isolate why.  Both Emby and the Hauppauge WinTV-dualHD dual tuner have the most current software and to enure correct channels do channel mapping.  Also, sometimes even in what appears to be a perfect recording, unable to conver that recording to .MP4 or .MKV, just hangs at different percentages. When I am home and use the Silicon dust tuners, the recordings and live TV are perfect, no issue so suspect something in the Hauppauge and Emby but no idea what I would need to configure.  Any ideas will help.  i am currently visiting in New Hampshire and will be back in Texas on Saturday.  This happened a few weeks ago in Arizona and New Mexico.  Hit and miss or choppy live and or recordings.

Hi there @Robert X. Gonzalez, we' d have to go over an example to provide much insight, but the good news is that we are working on revamped Hauppauge support, so stay tuned for that.

Luke,

Thanks!  I am back in South Texas.  I suspect something amiss with the interaction of Hauppauge and Emby given that Hauppauge TV is clear and crisp using their software.  I will stand by!
