The HDHomeRun App and DVR Service
Simply put, it’s the software that works with your playback and network storage devices adding the ability to watch, schedule and record Live TV.
At it’s most basic, viewing Live over the air TV around your home on multiple devices has never been easier or as cost effective than with HDHomeRun tuners and DVR. Equally simple to setup is our full DVR service enabling you to schedule whole series recordings. Our DVR solution allows you to search by category, so why not record the whole series of your kids’ favourite shows and keep them entertained for hours and you can use your NAS drive to record to so they can watch on any compatible smart device around your home. Or why not catch up on your favourite shows or those not to miss ‘must win’ sporting events by setting it to record all the games only your team play.
Expandability and flexibility are key - it can be as simple as a laptop or as expansive as a multi-client, multi-NAS, multi-tuner masterpiece…instal the app and you are up and running. Give it a few recording tasks and it goes to work. TV viewing on your terms with HDHomeRun DVR.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My experience is that it does work well. I also read it runs hot - well mine doesn't. It was slightly warm to the touch after initial set up but right now it is only a couple of degrees above room temperature. The mains adaptor is cool too.
I use Plex (DVR and live viewing anywhere) and the HDhomerun software (live and LAN only) for viewing. Slow channel change was mentioned in another review. The HDHR software changes channel pretty quick and not far off using a TV. Plex takes about 5 seconds but not really a problem as it is not about flicking through channels.
The recording quality is excellent. No artifacts/blocking and the quality to me looks better than freeview on the TV. I have Virgins V6 box and the FTA HD channels on that are better than freeview and the HDHR recording in Plex look similar to me.
As a test I recorded 2 hours with all 4 tuners in use on HD stations and all recordings were faultless.
I have Plex running on a freenas box. Apparently Plex (with Plexpass subscription which i have) can auto remove adverts from recordings but the server version for freenas cannot do it. May have to try an alternative server to test it out.
One time my phone reported network error and refused to play the channel but on closing the app and retrying it worked. So far in my first week of use that has been the only error.
Oh and it comes in a big box that is mostly full of cardboard spacers. The unit is 95mm square and 20mm tall. It has a normal UK aerial socket where you just push the plug in - no screw threads.
The HomeRun is very easy to set up. The physical unit is a small black box with a metal underside and three inputs: power socket, supplied by the included power adapter, a (100 Mbit) ethernet port, a Cat 5e cable is included, and a coaxial TV aerial connector. The label on the underside has the MAC address for the ethernet port, I used this to assign a fixed IP address from my router's DHCP server. I then turned the HDHomeRun on and accessed its webpage from a webbrowser. There's no username or password required, which is reasonable for a local network device like this one. The webpage has a few options, but clicking on "Channel Lineup" allows you to "Detect Channels". This populates the channel list with all the Freeview channels, including the HD ones.
I then downloaded HDHomeRun clients. For me this was from Google Play for my Nexus 7, and from the Microsoft Store for my Windows 10 machine. The only hiccup was dealing with the Microsoft Store. If you find clicking on "Get" just refreshes the Windows Store page for the App, sign out, and then sign in. Not sure why that worked, but it's an entirely Microsoft issue, that you may not encounter. If you have any problems with the HomeRun, there's Silicondust's website, which I've found very informative. They have a forum too.
Setup was as simple as plugging in the power, aerial and network cable. And that was it. No sooner had I logged into my Plex Server, it had found it on the network and off it went.
A few more minutes later, I could watch live TV on the apples server and few of the other devices around my home.
Plex DVR has been happily recording the soaps for the wife on series link and she can happily now watch them in any room of the house.
One piece of advice, though. When setting up the Homerun with Plex, set it up to “transcode while recording”. It will use quite a bit more disk space, but I’ve found a few Plex clients on some smart TVs stutter every now and again when playing back recorded content when this setting is “Off”. Setting Plex up this way ensures everything plays back smoothly regardless of the client.
Brilliant device, and well worth the money. Given my setup and our viewing habits, it works out far cheaper than a SkyQ subscription.
It has met my needs and I would recommend it. An upgrade I would like to see seems to be only available in the US versions, a hardware transcoder so that it would be easier to stream HD channels.
