Silicon Dust HDHomeRun

11 03 2011

For Christmas I bought myself an HDHomerun. This is a network connected dual tuner that works with many software products including Windows Media Center.
The HDHomerun is ethernet attached and as many computers as you like can use it to tune in and watch or record digital television. With two tuners two computers can each use one tuner or one computer could use both tuners at the same time.
The HDHomerun has required quite a bit of configuration but nothing technical. I’ve had to configure many of the digital cable channels but Silicon Dust offers great instructions and tech support to help in this process.
One of the issues that I have with the HDHomerun is that once you do all your configs for the channels you have to repeat them for every computer. I wish there was some way to move the config file from one computer to another.
Over all I am very happy with the HDHomerun and would recommend it to someone who is not afraid of some configuration work.
