Shows randomly drop signal with HDHR3-US (non cablecard)

Post#1 » Thu Aug 04, 2016 12:09 pm


I'm not sure what's causing the issue, router, or the hdhomerun- but I can be watching live or recorded tv, and occasionally the signal appears to drop, leaving recordings that are only half as long, or a frozen picture on the tv for live tv. I've recently upgraded to an HDHR3-US from the HDHR-US for simplicity, and the problem seems to be happening much more often.

I noticed when watching Live TV and stream has seemed to pause, I instantly stopped it, and tried switching to another channel, and Media Center told me that the tuners are currently in use. But a minute later, I'll start another channel, and everything is working ok.

Is this a known problem? Is this a faulty HDHR3 that I have? Or is it likely an issue with the router?

We need more information, such as wiring layout, number of cable splitters, make/model of router, version of HDHR firmware, signal levels, etc.
