5 out of 5 eggsThe product is great! Cable companies on the other hand...

Pros: I've owned 2 of these for quite some time, and the product and support are wonderful. You can generally always get one on one support through IRC too!

Cons: The cable company!
if they even know what you have might jerk you around a bit. You may or may not also need another flaky box sadly not designed by silicondust to tune to "SDV" Switched Digital Video channels, and sometimes it's easier just to tell the people at the other end of the line that you have a 'tivo box' to avoid being transferred to internet support. I find my SDV box, a Cisco STA 1520, freezes up every so often, and you can generally tell from the HDHR logs what's going on.
There are a whole lot of pitfalls one can get on this system, so if you expect something to just "work" this might not be for you! Expect to spend hours on support while you pair and re-pair cablecards, expect the cable company to screw up your subscriptions when you return your regular cable box, and expect to have to play games with them to get it to work.
The more you know the better you are off, search the internet for your provider and other people who use the hdhr, check the silicondust forums, ask questions in the IRC, when all is said and done you will have yourself a really kickbutt media center with cable and 3 tuners at your disposal!

Other Thoughts: You definitely want to make sure your network is up to the task of delivering traffic to your devices. I would stay away from wifi, and I would use pro-sumer or pro grade gigabit switches if you can. The lower the latency and the fewer dropped packets the better. If you don't know how to configure a router, this product might not be for you though.

3 out of 5 eggsNo Go XP x86

Pros: Seems to change channels quickly with WMC.

Cons: Does not work with Win XP x86. Don't remember seeing this in the sales docs. Thought I would use on older laptop with VLC. Opened a ticket as only getting WMC to find 2 of 3 tuners.

Other Thoughts: No phone number for tech support listed on their site. Have to go through ticket process and wait.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with high end devices

Pros: network attached
ease of installation
populates channels and logos

Cons: Requires high BW and high cpu utilization due to mpeg2 streams
no encoding to H.264

Other Thoughts: Should have waited and bought the newer model that has H.264 encoding of the mpeg2 streams.

5 out of 5 eggsSiliconDust HDHR3-CC HDHomeRun PRIME

Pros: It just works. Working with Ch@rter Cable, no problem. Eliminates the need to rent costly tuner boxes and DVR boxes. Includes three tuners.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I did a lot of research before I purchased the HomeRun Prime. Went to the local cable office and picked up the cable card. $2.50 per month rental for the card. Hooked everything up myself. And low and behold it has worked flawlessly for three months now.
A few things to be aware of though. You will need a dedicated a PC running Windows Media Center, or some other OS such as Linux with XBMC. A sizable HDD is recommended for the DVR feature.
To get this to other TV's in my home I am using XBOX 360's Media Center Extender feature. I have a pretty stout WiFi and have not had any problems streaming TV over it. I understand some people have to hard wire all there extenders. I use Gigabit router and switch with AC 1900 WiFi with no problems. There are other types of hardware and software that will work for the HomeRun Prime. Just do your research to determine what is best for you.There are a couple of really informative videos out there to get you headed in the right direction. Take your time and set it up right and this will work well for you.

5 out of 5 eggsDo your homework

Pros: Looked like it would have worked good.

Cons: Not really a Con. My Cable company doesn't support this device. If you're thinking about buying this check with your Cable Company first. Cablevision here on Long Island supports CETON.

5 out of 5 eggsHeads up

Pros: For the short time I had it connected to WMC it worked with my basic channels and it looked good.

Cons: Cablevision here on Long Island doesn't support this device. Learn from my mistake and check with your Cable Company before you buy one. My Cable Company Supports Ceton just in case any other Customers of Cablevision read this.

4 out of 5 eggsGood cable card tuner for local network.

Pros: Has three tuners and picks up encrypted digital cable TV thru cable card. The original software was a bit limited and not very user friendly. The newer version that you can download off their webpage is much better. Make sure that you update the software.

Cons: No NTFS, ATSC, or QAF tuners.

Other Thoughts: TimeWarner is a bit of a mess. They tried to activate the card, but the technician could not type the MAC address correctly. The only channels I could receive were channels 2 thru 13. This is no reflection on the product but rather on the incompetence of the Cable TV industry. It is also a bit ridiculous that they are sill using PCMCIA memory cards that are obsolete for the past 15 years.

3 out of 5 eggsComcast Cable Unit..

Pros: Unit work great, 3 tuners, the unit 5 eggs , Comcast ZERO eggs , since they have to work together 3 eggs

Cons: The big problem is that Comcast Sucks, they say it will cost you less but it cost the same a box from them, their retention department is a joke... If you can use anyone else do it,,, watch out as the sales department will lie to you to get a sale. The real only way to fix it is cut the cable...

Other Thoughts: When you talk to Comcast you must record everything, as later nothing can be done unless you disconnect. Get them to send to you details before you connect.... Then they slip in a thing or two. Like I said their RETENTION department is a total JOKE....

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: Good little product. Works well with today's machines. Recommend at least a Quad Core Cpu. Owned for a long time now and have had no issues. I have a review on you tube under SilSiliconDust HDHomeRun PRIME - Three Digital Tuners, Anywhere on Your Network HDHR3-CC.

Cons: Will not work with direct tv and no PPV or Video on demand

Other Thoughts: Will Save money on DVR cost.

5 out of 5 eggsA Real DVR

Pros: This is well worth the money if you would like to record cable television including premium that channels such as HBO and showtime(which are encrypted). With a windows 7 PC, a gigabit network and 5-10 mins of your time and this device is every easy to setup

Cons: To be honest i cant find or think of one valid con I have had with this device.

Other Thoughts: My setup with this DVR/capture device is an AMD athlon X2 2.8Ghz, 2 GB of RAM, was using a R4350 but now I running a R7770 (which I use for games) So you dont need a powerful system to use this device. In order to use this device you will need to get a cable card from your ISP, I STRONGLY recommend you research and see if this product is compatible with your network as not all cable tv providers/ISP support cable cards.
