One Device To Rule Them All

Everything is connected. We are all one! All one! 

Many religions and cultures contain the concept of an Axis Mundi, or cosmic centerpiece that connects the earthly world to that of the heavens. In our modern culture, it is clear that the personal computer occupies this role. And this HD Digital Tuner feeds but one more root into this modern Tree Of Life by letting you watch network and cable TV right on your desktop.

Think about it: Your computer is already your gateway to work, communication with distant friends and loved ones, dating, music, restaurants, and news. Network and cable TV were the only thing left to be subsumed under this all-encompassing pillar of the universe.

The Norse cosmic tree Yggdrasil.

We could bore you with the nitty-gritty specifics of this SiliconDust tuner, but you're probably just going to watch a review on CNet or something. Instead, let us marvel at the godhead that is today's personal computer. Like an octopus residing in the center of the Earth pulling strings and levels to enact chains of causality, our PCs have become the Hub of All Things.

So watch Ellen at 3pm on your laptop, and marvel at the interconnectedness of the world. Record reruns of Grace Under Fire, and feel the reverberating hum of the one universal sound/thought. Watch Turner and Hooch on TBS and feel at peace knowing your soul will reside in another plane following death.

Features

HDHomeRun Dual (two tuners):

  • Because the HDHomeRun Dual connects to your router, you can access the tuner from any computer, anywhere in your home that connects to your network through the router
  • Use an antenna to pick up the free broadcast Digital TV (ATSC) available in your area, such as ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, PBS, among other networks. Most locations have additional subchannels carrying kids programming, classic TV, weather channels and more; all of which are available for no monthly fee
  • You can also connect your HDHomeRun Dual directly to the incoming cable line to receive the unencrypted digital cable ("ClearQAM") channels your cable provider offers
  • The HDHomeRun Dual streams the full-quality digital stream from the broadcaster or cable provider, ensuring that you get the highest quality possible, including 720p and 1080i HDTV when available
  • You can watch, pause, record, and rewind live TV, depending on the DVR program installed on your computer
  • The tuner works in combination with whatever DVR software you install on your computer, so that you can schedule in advance and record all your favorite TV shows
  • Multiple HDHomeRun units can be used together to expand the number of tuners on your network. They are automatically allocated between computers as needed. Tuner pooling works with Windows Media Center, BeyondTV, SageTV, GBPVR, MediaPortal, and TotalMedia
  • You can stream your HDTV live on your iPad or iPhone throughout your wireless network. You'll need to use EyeTV software as well as an EyeTV App purchased on iTunes, but once you have these, you can watch, pause, and record on these handheld Apple devices
  • The HDHomeRun Dual works with a variety of popular DVR applications that are compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux programs, such as Windows 7 & 8 Media Center, Elgato EyeTV, Myth TV, SnapStream Beyond TV, SageTV, and MediaPortal

HDHomeRun Prime (three tuners):

  • As soon as the cablecard tuner is connected to your home router, you will have the ability to access the HDHomeRun Tuner from any computer--anywhere in your home
  • Watch and record TV from your family room, kitchen, garage, backyard, or anywhere else you have a computer
  • Support for CableCARD conditional access, giving you access to premium cable channels from your PC. Just insert an M-Card cablecard from your cable provider and enjoy the ability to watch and record all the digital cable channels you subscribe to--including HD and premium channels in 100% digital quality! Make it easy on yourself and get rid of that set-top box rental that's costing you money
  • Compatible with Windows 7 & 8 Windows Media Center, offering the full DVR experience. Watch, pause and record live TV, schedule recordings by name, set up season passes and watch content when it's convenient for you
  • So, you don't happen to have a PC next to your TV, huh? No problem: Use an Xbox360 or other Media Center Extender and you'll get access to live TV and all the recorded programs on your primary PC
  • Supports the streaming of access-controlled copy-freely channels to other DVR applications, including MythTV. These are channels you subscribe to that are encrypted on the cable system (access-controlled) and don't place restrictions on use in your home (copy-freely)
  • Elgato's HDHomeRun App and SiliconDust HDHomeRun Prime join forces to deliver premium television and DVR capabilities on the iPad 2. The HDHomeRun Prime sends the TV signal directly to the HDHomeRun Prime App, so you don't have to turn on a PC. Enjoy the ability to watch, pause and record on your iPad! (app not included)
