Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

That is really interesting, especially since it'll record to a NAS. I wonder if the recordings will work with generic video players.

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

I wonder if the HDHomeRun is bad? Can you still ping it by IP after it's no longer discoverable?

Maybe fire up Wireshark and take a look to see what's happening differently between discoverable and not. As much fun as that sounds.

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

I'm wondering if a combination of a firmware update and a static IP on that HDHomeRun will help. If it's trying to do autodiscovery and the IP keeps changing that could explain some of the problems you're having. (also try checking/disabling the firewall on that machine, is it blocking service disco...

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

I use MythTV on a home-built Linux box for the backend and Kodi on a couple of Chromeboxes for frontends, but I'm using an internal PCIe 6-tuner Ceton. Unfortunately it looks like that company has basically shut down since Microsoft stopped supporting Windows Media Center, so you can't buy them anym...

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

Or just get CenturyLink, they're $30 for the first year (and I'm sure if you threaten to cancel every year you could keep the $30 price). I'd rather deal with a local company where I don't have to have a "bundle" and don't need to play shenanigans with their pricing. USI is still competitive and th...

Re: Fiber Internet and TV Services, Cord Cutting

I sort of get the feeling that this is one of those things the park board is being firm about because of setting a precedent. Commissioners denied the permit, arguing the firm essentially hadn’t done its homework — not providing detailed plans for how and where it will dig, not proving there was no ...

Re: Stadium LRT Station, Ped Bridge & Plaza (MSFA block)

Well the way it's looking, the state isn't going to pass the SWLRT funding and then we don't get funded from the feds. Hopefully the situation changes in the next couple of days but the end of the session is coming and the R speaker specifically said he wants to kill the project.

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

There are plenty of hotels and entertainment west of the stadium that people will be using the LRT to get to after games. Why are you assuming that the only direction anyone would head after a game is east?

It would benefit anyone heading to the SW suburbs on the SWLRT when that gets built.

Re: The Commons - Downtown East Park

There appears to be some plans for the section of the plaza on the other side of the tracks where the bridge will land, but much of that area is listed as alternates, so we'll see how far the MSFA's money goes. This is strange, because I thought I read at one point that Alatus owned the air rights ...
