Tim, someone mentioned earlier that the HDHR support was not in the PPA
version yet. The reason mine worked is I'm using the External Recorder
Blackbox version called mythhdhrrecorder.
I also used some instructions from Gary about setup using
mythhdhrrecorder and tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite, where he talks about his
configuration for HDHomerun Premium service. I used those instructions
minus the part about setting up Premium Schedule Listings.
Link to PDF instructions.
