5 out of 5 eggsGreat little box

Pros: Works.
2 tuners with a single input
Can have multiple devices at the same time

Cons: Box advertises SD over wifi, but nothing on the instructions or on the net could clarify how to get this. I only could see HD reaching my HTPC.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to install the drivers first.

Wanted to use 802.11N wifi connection from HDHR to HTPC. Had to make some changes to the router wifi config in order to get this to work properly.
Used speedtest.net to verify that the HTPC could receive as much bandwidth over wifi as possible.
Once all set up, the HDHR could feed the HTPC without any issues.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for over-the-air!

Pros: Works great for OTA television. The new HDHR4 versions have a nicer web user interface for status and channel information, plus the ability to do http streaming in addition to everything the previous models can do.

Cons: The power supplies on these could be improved - odd problems with units have turned out to be power supply problems every time. Just using a higher quality one fixed them up.

Note this is for OTA and non-encrypted digital signals on cable system. If you want channels that that are not in the "basic" package or premium channels you want to get a HDHR Prime instead.

Where are versions with more tuners!?!? 2 is nice, 8 would be great ;)

Other Thoughts: Highly Recommended.
I have used ever version of the product over the years, and they get better each revision.
When you set up, get the newest firmware and you should be good to go. SiliconDust just funded a Kickstarter project for a software DVR, check it out too!

1 out of 5 eggsloved and lost

Pros: awesome when it works

Cons: freezes up every two days. ignored by support

Other Thoughts: this was an amazing solution to my home theater system with plex media and chrome cast. I couldn't believe it worked so flawlessly, then 34 days in it froze up. I finally figured out that if I powered it down it would again be recognized by WMC. that got old quick. i tried a new bios, nada. I left an email in the support q but nothing from them in the last two weeks. SiliconDust, RMA me and I will change the rating...if the new unit works.

1 out of 5 eggsmissing manual

Pros: arrived quickly

Cons: The package includes no instructions whatsoever. No disk, no flashdrive, not even a 1-2-3 quickstart sheet. Oh, they do have a sheet, but it just says go to the website. Website has instructions only for windows.
No hints at all how to get it to work on a Mac.

5 out of 5 eggsrocked my world

Pros: didn't have to have an antenna in the same place as my computer

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: wrestled with getting antenna to my master bedroom where my computer was with an old tuner card. I put this in my utility room next to the coax splitter and the network switch; 10 minutes later I was recording TV.

1 out of 5 eggsNeed to improve

Pros: Good concept.

Cons: Poor execution. HDHomeRun VIEW shows black screen. Updated display driver but didn't help. Installed Beta version, same problem but the beta software creating more problem by flashing Beta firmware which cannot be downgraded.

Other Thoughts: Unfinished design cheap plastic box.

3 out of 5 eggsNo HD recording on WMC

Pros: The device has been setup for a couple months now. No problem getting the signal to computer.

Cons: Can't record HD on the Windows Media Center with this device. I've been trying to get support for weeks. Still can't find the answer, still looking.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Peezie

Pros: Super easy to set up and get working. Excellent integration with Windows Media Center. Can watch OTA TV on all my devices.

Cons: Looks like it will be a bit of a challenge to get it set up with EPG on Kodi/XBMC.

Other Thoughts: A few more tweaks to my entertainment system and it's Good Bye Cable!
