I am using HDHomeRun to view and record live tv. After beginning to use MCE Buddy, I found out quickly that the two don’t play well together. Once MCE Buddy converts the files and removes the commercials, HD Homerun can’t see the file because some of the stored information is deleted along with the commercials. As a workaround, I instructed my wife to use HD Homerun to view live tv and set up recordings. To view the recordings, I put a shortcut on the desktop to enable her to view the recordings with VLC Media Player.
It seems with so many folks using these two programs, there would be some way to make them work together. I read the forum entries entitled “How to keep HDHomerun from recording shows” but that solution doesn’t seem to address the problem described above. If there is a “fix”, please point me in the right direction. If there is no solution, let me know so I can save some time and I’ll stay with my workaround.
