5 out of 5 eggsGreat device

Pros: The SD HDHR3 is a wonderful device for recording cable TV. I've been using my current tuner for the past 16 months with a WIndows 8.1 WMC setup. The pc is a dedicated htpc which is only used for recording tv. This product has allowed me to setup a whole house dvr system that's very easy for my entire family to use.

Cons: There are no con's that I've ran in to with the tuner itself. Its a great product.

Other Thoughts: When I activated my cable card, I actually reached out to my providers forum support staff. They are very knowledgeable and they were able to activate the product without a single phone call from myself.

The one thing that I wish that Silicon Dust added, was a few more tuners. With the new fall tv season starting soon, I've ordered another tuner so I will be up to 6 tuners now. Previously we were unable to watch live tv most nights because all 3 tuners were being used to record tv shows.

In addition to using WMC for the recordings I'm also using a program called MCEBuddy which removes commercials and also re-encodes the recordings to .m4v formatting so that I can watch them on my apple tv's if I wish or any of my portable devices. This really helps to reduce the file size of the records.

3 out of 5 eggsBetter than renting multipe boxes from cable company

Pros: 3 tuners from one PCMCIA cable-card. Which means if you have a Media Center PC you can watch and record 3 channels simultaneously. That alone is totally worth it.

Cons: The TV interface is garbage. No ability to create favorites or filter out channels and as there is like a 3-5 sec delay when changing channels so channel surfing is very tedious!

Other Thoughts: Final Word: This box is really only great at one thing, giving you 3 tuners from one cable-card which for me is worth it. Everything else needs much, much more development in functionality and end user experience. Ultimately I am satisfied with my purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsNot that DNLA complient

Pros: does show tv on android (but with a purchase of their ap)

Cons: the product can not handle HD very well. Not really DNLA compliant requires special drives and apps to play. PS3 recognizes it as a dnla source but can not play it.. Really sucks and is not usable.

Other Thoughts: would never have made the purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsWell worth the trouble of getting it working.

Pros: I got this thing so I wouldn't have to rent another cable box to watch tv (thru my Xbox) on an old 60" Plasma monitor a buddy gave me. Once getting thru the hassle of having Time Warner get me a working cable card that was setup properly on there end it was smooth sailing.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Unless you have the time and patience to deal with your cable provider, I wouldn't suggest getting any type of tuner. It took a few hours on the phone (many calls), two different cards, and three different techs coming to my home to get my tuner fully operational. Most companies have dedicated cable card phone numbers, that you won't find unless you take the time to google and troll through several different forums to find them, but getting the number/s to those tech lines is your best chance at saving your sanity. Again, I'm glad I got a tuner and SiliconDust is IMHO the best in the business, but it was a lot of time and work to get it going.

5 out of 5 eggsThe DVR future is coming

Pros: The HDHR Prime is wonderful and it's only getting better. Silicon Dust produced a new Kodi addon for live TV and started a Kickstarter campaign to aid the development of HD Homerun DVR software that will handle protected content, be OS agnostic and integrate with Kodi. Windows and WMC will no longer be needed for complete functionality.

Cons: The only negative has always been the requirement for using Windows Media Center to record protected content and that problem is being addressed by Silicon Dust.

Other Thoughts: Check out the Kickstarter campaign for HD Homerun DVR.

5 out of 5 eggsWell Worth The Savings!

Pros: No more FIOS rentals
More stable than FIOS boxes

Cons: None - only three turners, can't wait for a 6 tuner

Other Thoughts: I am using this unit with FIOS service. I am using a FIOS Gateway which is their AC class router. I am using WIFI for all of my video sources and have no issue what so ever streaming HD video. This unit works great, very stable. I have only had to reboot it once due to a power outage. Other than that, stone solid. I wish they had a turner with more tuners.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a dissapointment

Pros: I honestly can't think of one.

Cons: This was a hassle from the time it came out of the box. I never not once got the tuners to connect. I followed the instructions to the T as little as it was. When I tried to open a ticket with the manufacturer I never received a response at all. I've become so disgusted with it I put it in the box and stuck it back in the closet. I was to late to get a refund and it was a hard $79.00 lesson learned.

Other Thoughts: Charter will give you no assistance with setting this up and they told me they had never heard of this brand name. I'm beginning to understand why.
Silicon Dust you got me this once...... you want get my money ever again.

5 out of 5 eggsSo good

Pros: Can do so much with so little - TV on phone, tablet, laptop, or actual television set. You name it, you can probably watch it.

Cons: Initial setup was the hardest part..but even then it only took 20 minutes.

Other Thoughts: Why even buy cable boxes anymore, those guys not only gouge you on monthly costs for cable, but also make you overpay for a TV experience that can be mimicked with 3rd party softwares.

5 out of 5 eggsNow were talkin!!

Pros: Tunes my HD channels over the network. Man, if only I looked into CableCard boxes a little more, I would have bought one of these a long time ago. Saves me money in cable box fees.Helps me get rid of cable lines going into all the rooms with tv tuner's on the PC's, which is like EVERYBODY'S almost. The reception is much clearer with a digital tuner, channels are BEAUTIFUL!!.

Cons: Can't really give an honest con that is the fault of SiliconDust. The only major issue I had was getting the card setup correctly at the local cable company. After that got all straightened out, I have had no other issues except for issues in "OTHER THOUGHTS"

Other Thoughts: Hopefully this info is helpful:

In your diagnostic front page, make sure that it shows..

Card Authentication success
Card OOB Lock success
Card Validation success

The info the cable company will need, is the CableCARD ID, Host ID, & Data #'s.

Take note, AFTER the card gets validated, your data number will probably change, stay on the line with the tech till the new data number matches on their end as well.

Once you get the go ahead, then scan for channels and they should all be there.

I have this setup for 5 computers and 1 android. I had DRM issues on one PC, On the other I had to reinstall the HDHomerun software to get it working in WMC. The DRM issue PC was my HTPC/Gaming computer that's connected to the big screen. Got that issue resolved and dang, it sure is nice getting rid of the cable box. I have a Logitech wireless keyboard/touchpad and a WMC remote connected to that setup.

Android SD channels all tune just fine, HD channels stutter every once in a while (Galaxy S5).

Also, for those having the dreaded DIGITAL CABLE ADVISOR failure, try this.... Check your MONITOR driver. On 2 of the PC's I configured, the DCA failed on the video card, after updating drivers and what have you, I still had the issue, so I'm flipping though driver info for the displays, and I notice that TEAM VIEWER was set as the driver provider. All I did was ROLL BACK the driver, this allowed me to keep using Team Viewer and pass DCA using a Microsoft provided driver till I downloaded updated ones from the manufacturer.

It does take some skill to configure this unit and I wanna say each of the individual problems I encountered were solved with just a bit of research. I would hope that others who purchase this unit and have problems with it, don't hate it right off the bat... research the problem, get it setup right, it works fantastic!!

1 out of 5 eggsNot happy

Pros: Easy setup when it works.

Cons: Just doesn't work right. WMC will just stop in the middle of watching a show or recording one. Have to manually pull the plug to reset it often. Can't get setup channel scan to run to finish. Get pixelation breakups on 1Gig network. Support ONLY by email.

Other Thoughts: I sent it back to vendor (RMA) and they replaced it with referb.. Now I don't have retail box so I'm stuck with it. I should have returned to Newegg as they would have refunded my money or given credit.
