    SiliconDust HDHomeRun CONNECT reviews

    HDHomeRun CONNECT is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great little product We cut our cable about 12 years ago, and have relied on netflix, youtube, and other downloadable content for our entertainment.� However I recently purchased a digital OTA, and paired it with the HDHOMERun Connect.� Purchased an Amazon Stick, because it too has the HDHomeRun app and we are able to capture about 6 usable local channels all in HD and thanks to HDHomeRun I can watch cable on my tv as well as our phones and tablets.� Definitely a must if you are a cord cutter. I've purchased items from B&H in the past, and they are great when it comes to product prices and delivery times, so I will definitely purchase from them with confidence.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Support for Windows 10 Someone needs to highlight the fact that HDHomeRun View WILL NOT WORK with Windows 10. You get sound but no video. It is not totally SD's fault. Microsoft has removed the Codec needed to convert the video (you cannot watch DVDs with a new Win10 install, or .mpg or others, either). The problem I have with SD is that they acknowledge the problem, but expressly refuse to tell you how to work around the problem. Only, apparently, if people boycotted the product until SD remedied the situation, would it get fixed. So, as well as it works with my older Windows installs, do not buy this until it fixes the Windows 10 issue.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good function, weak tuners This new upgraded HDHomeRun has improved tuners, but they still are weak. Both my Pioneer and Panasonic TVs pull in marginal stations with fewer glitches. Works well with stronger stations, well integrated with the Windows Media Center. View the guide, pick the shows you want to record. I don't have it directly on the network so I can't comment on network performance, its connected to my media center directly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Function I have the new generation HomeRun Dual connected to a spare three year old Acer netbook via ethernet cable. The Windose 7 netbook is running its built in windows media center and is connected via wifi to the house network. It has plenty of horsepower for this task. I share the record folder and pull videos off remotely from my Mac to edit (using handbrake to convert). The system works very well, well integrated with the media center, solid. Similar to DVRs, you can pick and chose programs from a guide. The HomeRun tuners may have been improved, but they are still weak, about on the par with PVR-150s. My five year old AM21 runs circles around the HomeRun, recording shows from TV stations that the Home Run can't lock onto. Although this has two tuners, there is only one antenna connection.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to Apple TV I use this to wirelessly stream an OTA to my Apple TV with the Channels app. Works flawlessly with no issues.
    Date published: 2016-01-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Device - Cut Your Cable First, a comment about the 1 star review - It should be removed as this device works flawlessly with Windows 10. Depending on your location and antenna this device will pull in a number of OTA stations. 23 in our area, it also provides a buffering aspect so we seldom to never see pixilation. Frankly the quality of the signal surpasses local cable and satellite (we have had both). I would recommend UPS for your network and this device if your area is prone to electrical flickers (during storms). Having a UPS will keep the network up and the stations on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HD tuner used with AppleTV and iPad via Channels App Very nice product. Using it with AppleTV and iPad Channels App by Fancy Bits. We have the HDHomeRun up high in the house where a simple indoor HD antenna can get good reception and then we watch TV using the Channels app on the AppleTV in the Living Room (1st floor) where the antenna reception would not be very good. We can also watch TV anywhere in the house using an iPad. Two tuners is really helpful when more than one person wants to watch different shows on different devices. Image quality is very good. Usability is very good with Channels App. Very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Strong OTA tuner, 2 steams makes this a great device to stream free tv. Many companion apps out there to use with Apple TV, Android tablets etc. Worth it completely, a good investment.
