hdhomerun prime cable card not showing hbo channels

I am having the same issues as several other posters on this forum. I have a cablecard installed in an HDHomerun Prime, and all channels are marked as DRM. Also some channels are missing altogether. I have had the cablecard installed for some months now, but have not had the time to investigate the issue so it has remained unused. Please advise how to correct the issues, or refer me to someone who can assist.

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 another 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. So users have been looking for alternative methods.
