5 out of 5 eggsVery good

Pros: Really like the device, it performs well and is attached on the network so no need for additional cards and/or specific computers. Once configured, easy to use.

Cons: May not be easy to use with Apple devices

Other Thoughts: Well, I wish they also covered analog signals.

3 out of 5 eggsBe aware, this is NOT the HDHR4 with UPnp/DLNA support

Pros: Cheap
Great picture
Nice to see "Picture in picture" again because of that dual tuner.

Cons: The title says it all. If you look at the product's main web page (here: http://www.silicondust.com/products/hdhomerun/hdhomerun-dual/)
you may easily get confuse between the HDHR3 and the HDHR4. Only the last one seems to support UPnP/DLNA sharing.

Not that easy to setup. This is a bare bone product: plug, install Windows drivers and have "fun" for the next hours because... You will have to figure out why WMC won't let you use Live TV in Canada. You will have to install AC3 (read: ffdshow) codec if you wish to enable audio. If you are unlucky, you may also struggle as I did with AMD's drivers crashing Quick TV app. Finally, you will try to setup nPVR to work with XBMC. Doing so, you will probably have deactivate your local firewall because channel scan will fail to find anything otherwise.

Other Thoughts: This is as simple a network tv tuner can get.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat product

Pros: * stylish design
* smaller than I expected -- does not take much space
* great reception
* easy and straight-forward to setup

Cons: * Windows Media Center in Windows 7 does not support over-the-air in Canada! This is not really a problem with the device, but its description page claims compatibility with WMC, which is misleading enough to lose one egg.

Other Thoughts: * It will probably work with your cable provider in Canada. Also, I watch over-the-air channels with other TV applications without any problems.

* In the HDHomeRun QuickTV application there is no sound. I use other TV applications, which don't have problems, so this isn't a big deal for me.

* The tuner itself seems very sensitive -- I am able to receive 3 more channels using simple rabbit years than the previous tuner I tried.

* The convenience of HDHomeRun being on my network is a great plus over the typical USB tuner out there.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: I'm in Canada and it work great for ATSC antenna.
I can watch TV on my Android Phone over WIFI (with app).
With latest OpenElec I can also watch TV using raspberry PI.
The box is really small.

Cons: Doesn't recode anything so on less powerful computer (raspberry pi, android phone) it can sometime loose a few frame.

Other Thoughts: If you are on cable it won't work directly and behind the cable box (decrypt) you won't be able to benefit from the dual tuner. This is not the fault of the product!

2 out of 5 eggsSerious compatibility issues with Windows Media Centre

Pros: Nice idea, powerful ATSC tuners

Cons: Very poor software integration, incompatibility with Windows Media Centre, useless guidance on website

Other Thoughts: Complete fail after 12+ hours. Worked, but incompatibility with WMC means no Electronic Program Guide data.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well. Good tuner.

Pros: Easy setup.

Cheap.

Fairly sensitive tuner, almost as good as the built in in our TV

Cons: Bundled software is pathetic

Other Thoughts: USed this to replace an internal PCI-E tuner since I had to move the PC to a room with poor antenna reception. Does the job admirably well, and streaming the signal over powerline ethernet works flawlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect antenna->video device

Pros: Pros of this device are numerous, but I'll keep it short: it took me barely over a man-hour to get that puppy up and running on my antenna using MythTV-Backend, and less than thirty minutes to hook up the backend to XBMC. From there, it works exactly as advertised.

Cons: Cons are few: can't buy more at the same price I got it initially, and the web interface is ridiculously spartan. "Works as designed", I guess.

Other Thoughts: If you need a little box that does ATSC -> Video that can be controlled by a remote computer and if you have the knowledge to hook it up to your current setup, the HDHomeRun is as good a product as any. Bonus: I'm using it in Linux with nary a hiccup.

1 out of 5 eggsNot compatible with Canadian providers

Pros: Small, detected on the network.

Cons: Having two tuners is useless when you can only change the channel via the cable box.
