Saving a 30 second video clip for troubleshooting problems

Paste a URL into your web browser and save the resulting file:

http://hdhomerun.local:5004/auto/v<virtual channel number>?duration=30

The “hdhomerun.local” address should resolve to the first HDHomeRun device on your network. If this does not work, or you have more than one HDHomeRun device, you can also use your “device ID”+.local. For example, if you have a device ID of 104fffff then you would use 104fffff.local. If that still does not work, you can find the IP address of your HDHomeRun from your router settings and use that.

Examples:

  • http://hdhomerun.local:5004/auto/v2.1?duration=30
  • http://104fffff.local:5004/auto/v2.1?duration=30
  • http://192.168.0.100:5004/auto/v2.1?duration=30

  1. Use HDHomeRun Config (GUI) to choose the physical channel.

    NOTE: Ensure the viewer is not running for the next commands.

  2. Set the filter: Open a cmd prompt and run:

    "C:\Program Files\Silicondust\HDHomeRun\hdhomerun_config" <device id> set /tuner0/filter 0x0000-0x1FFF

    (replace “<device id>” with the 8-digit device ID of the HDHomeRun)

  3. Save the stream to disk:
    "C:\Program Files\Silicondust\HDHomeRun\hdhomerun_config" <device id> save /tuner0 sample.ts
  4. Wait 30 seconds and stop the stream by pressing Ctrl-C.
