I don't know. The recorded file plays Closed Captioning back fine with the SageTV Player (Server or Client). I cannot get them to show up playing the file with VLC -- I cannot get any of the...

Interesting question. I don't know because I have never thought about it. I simple record the show (OTA remember) and when played back with SageTV (either at the Server or with HD300) the CC is just...

There is no SageTV for ROKU that I am aware of.

Yes, that is an important issue. I am guessing that PlayOn is pedaling as fast as it can to "grow big enough" to be the top dog but is just not there... yet. Which is why I keep promoting it. I would...

I am still partial to Tablo (well. after SageTV) but that may be mainly because there is no Channels DVR ROKU App and the Tablo App in Shield is … eh, clumsy. Nevertheless, the only thing that I...

Yeah, I sorta got stuck in a rut... or maybe I am just lazy. <chuckle> I can blame ATT TV NOW (formerly DirecTV NOW) which was/is my source of non-OTA programming.

Emby doesn't do Streaming, only OTA.

The biggest problem I have with Emby is the lack of Closed Captioning support. Otherwise, it can act as an alternative to SageTV. However, Tablo is a better...
