Apologies for the issue and the experience that you described above. I have escalated your issue to the right teams so that we can get all of your subscribed channels for you on your cable card device. That team will review your account and contact you directly. Thanks for your patience.

 

In the meantime, I have sent some signals to your cable card that have been known to resolve this issue in many cases. Please let me know how things are now.

 

Unfortunately, Kodi/XBMC does not support DRM protected channels. Channels that are copy protected by the cable provider (indicated by the DRM mark) can only be accessed by hardware/software that supports industry-approved protection, which basically means a PC running Windows Media Center, a media center extender linked to such a PC, a Playstation 3, or our HDHomeRun VIEW app for Android. Other hardware/software that does not support protection (including most DLNA device, QuickTV, XBMC, VLC, etc.) can only access the unprotected channels.

 

This could also be an example of “working as intended” if you are using PLEX as a platform to avenue the content from Silicon Dust HD Home Run Prime. And because of the recent update for Windows, Windows Media Center is no longer available; which was a primary platform for HD Home Run Prime. Some users have been looking for alternative methods/devices.

Re: HDHomerun Prime and Comcast DRM

Well I'm not sure if the the issue is fixed yet,, serveral programs {Not ATI's of course..} are stating that my video card doesn't do DRM {or doesn't do it to spec.s}.. I got a Nividia card that's I've been told does do DRM,,  I forget what part of the WMC cable advisor or WMC setup it gives in an error that basicly comes back to a DRM error. Easier use the "CyberLink Ultra HD Blu-ray Advisor" it gives a bunch of stats and mine card fails the DRM test(s).. So why don't I know if it worked ,, the computer is in a hard placed to get it out of and I have a AMD 8 core to replace the AMD 4 core.. It's the computer I use the most so taking it down of a day or two is a big deal.. Hope to pull it off before the end of the year. Please let me know what fixes it for you..
