You can set a stream to be your default audio stream.  The choice is saved in the channel object, so each time you start that channel, the same audio stream will be loaded.  While a channel is playing, right-click > Audio Programs, and make your choice first.  Then right-click and choose Audio Programs > Use current audio stream as default.

This reminds me, I need to try making this work for OpenCable/CableCARD tuners.  Currently it works for ATSC and DVB tuners.

I can't believe that JRiver still doesn't support the European standard for encoding pay TV: Common Interface (CI) / Conditional Access Modules (CAM).
Are there any plans for doing so?
Does anyone at JRiver care about the European market?

New Feature Request - ATSC3 OTA SiliconDust support

My local area now has ATSC3 signals for NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, and others.

Do you have a tuner that supports it?  It may work.

Where are you located?

Yes, I have the tuner. Northern California area.
It works using the SiliconDust App in Win10, Android, Roku, FireTv, etc.
As for 3rd party software, the hurdle seems to be that tv stations are broadcasting ATSC3 using AC-4 audio and HEVC video. I am still testing MC - video may work, but audio is the gotcha.

Mentioned this request in other threads, added to this topic for more visibility:
- Clients be able to see the Server's Tv logs and tuner status.

I would like an option to allow closed captions to be enabled automatically when playing back recorded TV programs. Enabling them each time takes either several mouse clicks, or many presses of the remote in the OSD in theater view. I have several TV programs I record daily, and I believe Media Center should not require me to turn on closed captions manually for each file. NextPVR has a global setting for turning on closed captions that sticks around.

Note that I currently still record my TV programs with NextPVR at this time, but I want to watch them in Media Center due to better rendering.

Added request for Tv Tuner Info page for Theater view:
- dedicated Theater view page showing live view of what each/all the tuners are currently doing. Simple options could be = Idle, or Live Tv (channel + Server/Client), or Recording (channel + program name + duration).

Playback of recorded TV shows is in the realm of "video playback" and the setting is already there.  Tools > Options... > Video > Subtitles & Language > Subtitle mode: Always show subtitles

@yaobing,

Being able to detect encrypted channels during a DVB-S/S2 scan would be a massive plus for a lot of us in the UK.

If there was a flag that could be set against an encrypted channel, we could then choose to hide or delete them after running a scan and get rid of hundreds of channels

It will be in the next Latest build (80 or higher, when it is released on MC30 board).

We have been able to scan the "scrambled" bit for many years, but we just ignored it.  Now I just made sure we save the flag, and display it on Manage TV Channels dialog.  Hope it works as I am not able to test.

Beautiful!

Just upgraded to build 82. Ran a new scan. The scrambled flag was not showing for me under details in the manage channels dialogue. Went into smartlists, created a new list for tv channels with the keyword scrambled and had almost 400 channels appear that I could delete immediately.

Great work @Yaobing!

This part is not working?  I tested it with a manually added fake DVBT channel.  It seemed to work.

What types of channels do you have trouble with this?

DVB-T, DVB-C, DVB-S, or SatIP?

Thanks.  I found the issue.  I thought I did it for all DVB channel types, but it turns out I forgot DVB-C and DVB-S.

Obviously, you did not need to rely on this part to work to achieve what you wanted.  Your method of using a TV channel smartlist is actually more efficient.

This is not a feature request so much as a slight improvement suggestion: 

In Television mode, on the Recordings window, recorded programs are sorted by descending date order.  I can sort by Program by clicking on the column heading, but it does not "stick" and always reverts back to a date sort.  I find that annoying and want it to remember my preference.

I think most people use TV recording like an old VCR and only have a few things to watch then delete.  In my case, I have many recordings and would like to sort by Program name then date or episode number.

Adding my long time request to have slow motion playback put into the OSD, so that it can be easily accessed using an IR MCE remote control just by pressing the up/down arrow (like aspect ratio/zoom/shift/etc). And an option to NOT pop-up the DSP window when slow motion is activated.

ATSC 3.0 was implemented a year ago or more.

It appears that some stations are encrypting broadcasts.

Yes, unfortunately. This is the case for the SF bay area KPIX and KNTV channels, the CBS and NBC affiliates respectively.

Even Silicon Dust's own native HDHomeRun app cannot decrypt and display these channels.

I don't understand the logic behind encrypting public broadcasts, or why this is even allowed.

It's a really sad state of affairs.

https://forum.silicondust.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=78888

Looks like there are zero devices today which can decrypt these broadcasts. I don't know what else to do except lobby the broadcasters, or go to legislators . The concept of "fair use", recording broadcasts for person use, has always existed.
The existence of DMCA should not pre-empt it.

Encrypting ATSC 3.0 is a total BS move by the AS3A which consists of Peal TV (including major broadcasters).

The way thing are looking, Windows PC's will NEVER EVER EVER get ATSC 3.0 encrypted playback or recording. Not even inside the SD native Windows App  >:(  Maybe the AS3A will approve SD Android playback/record one day  >:(

Meanwhile Zapperbox claims they can currently play/record encrypted stations, and will have "Multi-room DVR / Whole Home Gateway / Quad Tuner" this summer  ::)

Absolutely. And they can't even provide a proper justification for it.

https://cordcuttersnews.com/the-team-behind-nextgen-atsc-3-0-ota-tv-explains-why-drm-is-needed-for-free-ota-tv/

Quote from: idiots
This security upgrade for television broadcasters is important since unprotected signals can easily be intercepted, “deep faked” and redistributed without permission. Courts have shut down these illegal schemes but it took years and cost the industry millions. Preventing this problem in advance can be accomplished with the essential security protocols and capabilities inherent in ATSC 3.0. Broadcasters must plan to take advantage of these capabilities to protect their signals and their content. These security safeguards will keep hacking and unauthorized redistribution at bay while giving consumers better pictures and enhanced audio.

Solving that problem in no way requires encryption. It just requires some sort of integrity check, such as MAC/signing.
That could be built into the ATSC 3.0 protocol, and it wouldn't mess with anyone's ability to record programs for personal use.

Interesting. I had never heard of them. Their FAQ at https://zapperbox.com/pages/faqs says this under "Do I need one ZapperBox for each TV ?"

Quote from: zapperbox
A final step will be to not require multiple ZapperBox devices and use apps running on smart TVs. We are working to add these features during 2024 starting with multi-room DVR.

Apps running on smart TVs ? Those same TVs whose software becomes unmaintained / obsolete within a few years ? And are they going to maintain the apps for each brand/model of TV long after the TV manufacturers drop support ? I wonder what hey are smoking.

Also, my main device for watching video is a 4K projector, and it properly cannot run any apps. Those belong on devices connected to the AVR, not on the display. I do have two TVs also in other rooms. One is an old Sharp 3D TV in a guest room, and the software is long EOL. It does a Chromecast Ultra streaming stick connected, though. And the Marantz AVR (also long EOL) supports DLNA, for all that's worth.
