5 out of 5 eggsHDHR4-US: better than earlier versions

Pros: No drivers. It just sits on the LAN. Can be located close to the antenna / coax-feed, rather than having to be near/inside the PVR. Really good third-party Android apps are available for signal montior, playback. The HDHR4 (aka. "HDHomeRun Connect") finally has a decent tuner, measurably better than earlier versions. 5-7dB better than the HDHR3 on signals here.

Cons: Not quite as sensitive as the HVR-950Q USB sticks, but very close, and without the buggy driver hassles of the USB sticks.

Other Thoughts: Get it. It simplifies life.

4 out of 5 eggsNice features, Reception just OK

Pros: Two tuners available on any computer in the house

Cons: Reception is good but not as good as my Hauppauge 950Q USB stick. I reliably get several channels with it that this box can't tune.

4 out of 5 eggsThis device hits a HDHomeRun for me

Pros: * Easy to set up
* Great quality video
* Sensitive tuner
* Tiny footprint
* MythTV

Cons: * Streams consume a LOT of space
* Editing streams not easy due to I and P frame offsets

Other Thoughts: I was heading down the Hauppauge path when I remembered the HDHomeRun. Such a better solution for capturing OTA television.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent replacement for an Elgato 250 Plus

Pros: Very Sensitive Antenna
Mac Compatible with Eye TV software

Cons: Requires separate purchase of Mac software of which there are not a lot of options

Other Thoughts: I replaced my aging Elgato 250 Plus with this device. It's a no brainer for anyone else in this situation since the analog tuner in the 250 is no longer useful, and the existing EyeTV software works with this device. Just hook it up and go through the setup wizard and you're good to go.

5 out of 5 eggsI liked it so much...I bought a second one

Pros: Sensitive dual tuners - excellent reception
Compatible with NextPVR, MythTV and others.
Small, runs cool

Cons: No wall mounting holes - (some velcro did the job)

Other Thoughts: I've been OTA only since 2004. I first looked at PC based DVRs around 2007 - it just wasn't there back then in terms of usability and reliability, so I settled on an ATSC DVD Recorder.

The DVD recorder died last spring...time to look into options.

I'm happy to say things have moved along since 2007. I bought one of these tuners in the summer, and I liked it so much, I just bought another one to give me a total of four tuners on my whole-house DVR system.

Its reliable, stable, very good tuner sensitivity, relatively easy to set up, and very easy to use.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Good Device with a small footprint

Pros: Initially, I didnt' think I will use the product much, but I am pleasantly suprised. It allows you to watch OTA on any PC on the network. That means, you can instantly turn an PC into a TV watching unit.

Windows Media center recognises it right away, which is impressive. The only thing I struggled with was the EPG within WMC. If SiliconDust would include a EPG program, then you are set to go.

- Small foot print
- Reliable performance
- Works with Windows media Center both Win7 and Win8.1
- Tuner is as good as my TV built in Panny Tuner

I recommend the product to anyone that doesn't want to add any additional cards into the PC, and have the freedom to watch TV on any PC on the network.

Cons: I attempted to connect it using raspberry pi, but was unsuccessful. It would have been nice to run the tuner along side the RPi, for a true energy saving system. Also, if the unit encodes to other formats such as H.264 or .mkv natively, it would have been excellent value.

- hardware encoding to many formats would have been a bonus .. but mpeg2 works well

Other Thoughts: I recommend this unit to anyone that want to experiment with OTA within an multi PC home setup. The unit stays plugged in, and streams when asked, otherwise is just sitting there cool and quite.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Performer

Pros: - inexpensive
- easy set-up
- small device housing/footprint
- performs as advertised over wired network

Cons: - not the best device for wireless network

Other Thoughts: I bought this device to use on my home network to distribute OTA HD signals from a professionally installed HDTV antenna to other areas of my home via existing Gigabit LAN over Cat 5e ethernet,

The plan was to use the HDHomeRun by plugging the coaxial antenna feed from my HDTV antenna into it, run Server WMC on one of my existing desktop computers on my home Network and then access those HDTV channels via the Live TV option and EPG features in XBMC/Kodi Gotham throughout my home network.

It all worked pretty flawlessly. I had some difficulty getting the channel icons to appear properly in my EPG (a difficulty which has absolutely nothing to do with this device) but ultimately purchased a little software collection and channel logo integration tool and got that to work as well.

The whole package operates flawlessly now and I have Live TV appearing through an Electronic Programming Guide in XBMC running on a rooted A. Fire TV in my living room, as well as in other areas of my home over XBMC on various PCs. Picture quality/sound is very high quality and solid.

I do have my network wired over Cat 5e and do not typically use the TV signals produced by HDHomeRun over my wireless network. If I was planning on using a wireless setup, I would not have purchased this device and would have bought the more expensive alternative that distributes the media in H.264 format. Because my hardware setup is all over hardwired Gigabit LAN and I don't use a tablet to view these signals very often, H.264 native format wasn't a concern for me and this product does the job admirably with hardwired connections using only MPEG2.

It's a simple choice: wired connection? Get this product with confidence. Wireless connections? Get the more expensive HDHomeRun Plus instead.

4 out of 5 eggsGood OTA TV Solution

Pros: Easy to setup, was recognized instantly by Windows 7. Dual tuners allows to record 2 programs at once. Tuners are good, they pickup TV signal very well. Unit is small easy to hide behind TV.

Cons: A tad expensive.

5 out of 5 eggscrystal clear

Pros: great tuner.
best way to record/watch OTA TV.
low power. (almost 50% more efficent than the previous version)
better signal by coverting the signal as soon as possible (not in your computer) so you can reduce the coaxial cable length.
supported well on all platforms.
LINUX friendly.
the wall wart is small and level V efficient.
i have to replace all of my gen3 tuners with this!... because it is better!.
silver enclosure
i like this tuner better.

Cons: costs more, lol, now i have to replace all of my gen3 tuners with this!...

none, except for trivial complaints.

the signal strength read-out is in percent.

does not include a coaxial cable. (moot point because the gen 3 included one, but i considered it a "use last" cable...)

Other Thoughts: i measured the power use to be 1.3 watts at idle, and 1watt extra for each channel tuned in.
so with 2 channels that is 3.3 watts!.

the gen 3 was 2.2 idle and 5.6 watts with 2 tuners going.
