First of all, I have to say that this is an awesome project.
I tried to test it out using JJRC H36 drone. But I have problems binding to it.
I used the original code from https://github.com/goebish/nrf24_multipro to supplement missing protocol for JJRC H36. Any suggestions on where to look on how to fix this problem?

Best regards Marko.

Thank you for suggesting WatchAir! It’s available on Amazon too – https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LY2YX7I/ – out of stock on the white but for the price I’m good with the black. To have the HD antenna & dvr recording in one device is fantastic! It looks like it works with Apple TV & Amazon Fire Stick so I am hooked up with their app ok. I am thrilled to have cut the cord from cable, my Spectrum bill was getting outrageous! This definitely is a hidden gem in the cord cutting world. So glad to have found your post!

I’m wondering how you ended up going with the E010 in the end?

I know it’s an old project but i’ve made to make it all work (more or less).
I’d like to have a quick chat on some pars that I’d tweak to improve stability and performance of the drone trajectory.
Is there someone that I can ask to?

Thanks,
Christian

I resold it on eBay, making sure the purchaser knew that there was no program guide. Too bad. The price was right and the picture quality very good. Instead I purchased a ChannelMaster DVR+, now discontinued.

The device I’m currently using is a LaVa – it’s listed as being sold at Sears, but, if I remember correctly, I bought mine through Amazon. The two devices are almost perfectly identical – the LaVa can output “component” data while the MediaSonic cannot (they both have an HDMI output). For recording, there’s a menu – unfortunately, the old-style VCR programming can’t be done. You can record something “live” by just pressing a START button and then STOP it later. The guide I see with mine is good for 24 hours – no fee for that guide.

As someone else pointed out, there isn’t much out there in the way of support. Both these little guys are apparently made in China and the manual written by some kind of translation. Fortunately, there was a lot to it that was intuitive. And, at approximately $40, a pretty good bargain.

I have another gadget that will record from just about any source, but there’s not even a screen output for the device, so, when you record, it’s only an “on-demand” recording, i.e., you push a button to start and push a button to stop. My new TV is a smart-TV (like most of ’em now) and the guide shows up for OTA TV because it collects it from the internet. But many of these recording devices, if you want to “schedule” recordings, you need a guide.

Now if someone could invent something like a hard-drive based VCR – just set the channel and set the time on/off and you’re in business.
