The end of the road for CableCard

Recommended Posts

Sammy

Spectrum does not provide "separable security" on AndroidTV devices as they have no app for them. 

Hopefully Emby will someday soon have TV Everywhere in the DVR or we'll be forced to switch to ChannelsDVR when the Cable Companies drop CableCARD support.

They have no AndroidTV app though. They only have a mobile app.

This could very well be the nail in the proverbial coffin that will be responsible for the HDHomeRun 6 never coming to market.  That device has been announced since what 2015 and keeps getting pushed back for one reason or another and many have felt it will never make it to market.  This could very well do that device in.

It sucks to be TIVO right now.

This is not good news in general for TV/DVRs apps in general as it allows closing off the cable market AGAIN and getting forced to use cable boxes.  Had the FCC mandated export of M3U or some other method instead of cable card that would have been different but this isn't a good thing.

A screen shot of the Play Store on my phone showing Spectrum TV app not compatible with my AndroidTV devices.

You have been against TVE from the start but it is still going strong and getting better. Why so negative if it is shutdown you have the option to cancel Channels DVR anytime you want... so it still is the best solution if you lose cable card. I have been enjoying TVE from the start if it gets shutdown I have gotten my money's worth and more from Channels DVR.

If going so good then how come I still see many report of people having problem with it everyday, and no it still not the best solution if you lose cable card as you have do add HD-PVR and reg cable box tuner and ir blaster

I'd hate to have to go back to capture cards and IR blasters.  All that will do is push people to move to illegal IPTV as people who try to "play fair" are forced to look elsewhere for recordable TV.

Of course TVE and IPTV is likely not going to have the quality or ease of use of something like a PRIME and Cable Card so that's another downside.

The problem with that IPTV service is that they are getting shut down left and right fast then ever it to just another cat and mouse game every week you see it torrentfreak web site, I don't like it any more then you do but I really hope that SiliconDust is working on bring back Premium TV service that only hope.

But I had go to on Steaming it most likely be Youtube to better DVR

They are not bypassing anything as you have to logon with your provider credentials and the network you are trying to view will only work if your provider and your provider credentials are accepted. Obviously you are misinformed.

 

For example try this site ...

But the additional wrinkle is that, with a server application, you can then distribute those streams - which are valid for a specific geographical area - to an area where they are not.

They are too bypass it as it only using the modified url link + credentials common know as injection scripting language for gaining access to the actually media steam work around actual web page site it self, it basically the same principle as with game cheats.

All I know is that it works and anybody that has Cable Card would be dumb not to try it. EMBY would be wise to look into providing something similar.

They can go the same router as Plex did not long ago and be 100% legal and distribute in a specific geographical area depend on media broadcaster requirement for the channel but as you know we will lose out on the ability to record the show.

Keep in I didn't say the Channel DVR was bad it very ok app.
