    DVR costs extra

    The HD HomeRun works great for local channels, but nothing in the description said that there is an extra yearly fee to use the DVR capabilities. The whole purpose of cutting the cord is to get rid of subscriptions.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Thank you for your review. Our packaging does show right on the front that we have a $35 per year , per entire household annual subscription for our DVR service. We also discuss our DVR and cost of such on our website. It is not listed on the Best Buy site since it is not purchased through resellers, only direct from Silicondust. Your message has been passed to our content team.
      We truly hope that you enjoy the HDHomeRun experience.

    HDHomeRun Connect is the Best OTA Tuner

    Best Buy had this on sale for $79.99, so I finally decided to purchase it after much research. As a cordcutter, I'm always looking for a better way to view TV and save money. This device is worth the price and is very easy to install and setup. I was able to scan 39 crystal clear channels using only a flat digital antenna in a window. I suppose if I had a good roof mounted antenna, I would likely get more channels. This is so much simpler than using a TV tuner. You just open the app on your streaming device and scroll through the channel guide for programs to watch. My family likes this very much which makes my life good. The only thing I do not like is the HDHomeRun app, which has a very poor channel guide. I used the following workaround for my specific streaming devices: 1. For my 4K TV, I installed the Live Channels app for Android TV on my Nvidia Shield. This app is nice because it also picks up streaming channels from several other installed apps, so I'm getting about 170 channels. The channel guide in this app is also very good. 2. For my HDTV, I purchased the Channels app from iTunes and installed it on my Apple TV 4. This app is also very nice with an excellent channel guide. I haven't setup the DVR functionality yet on either device, but I don't expect any problems. I will connect a 1TB HD to my Nvidia Shield and I will probably use my iCloud drive for the Apple TV 4. So far I am very satisfied with my purchase.

    This silicondust connect worked like a charm. Very easy to set up. Just plug in the coax from your antenna, then the Ethernet chord from the connect to your router and voila, tv signal streamed to any connected tv. The signal is crystal clear as long as your devices are wired or you have a newer AC router. I did return it though as I wanted to run the signal through my plex system on my NAS. I got the hdhomerun extend because it has the built in transcoder so I wouldn't have to have my NAS do all the work while watching live tv or shows that I dvr'd while away from home. If you just want to stream to other tvs or iOS/android devices and you have a newer router, this is for you. Simple, and there's nothing wrong with that...it just works.

    Free local channels, set it and forget it

    Plugged it in, installed the Win10 app and had Live TV. Didn't need configure anything...had no idea there were over 70 local channels. Zero issues so far. Setup is mindless; if you can figure out how to set up your antenna then you're good. Win10 and Android apps are solid, they've been pushing weekly updates and bug fixes but I've had no issues thus far.

    Engenius device for OTA TV watching and recording.

    If you are tired of paying for cable or satellite TV, this device can be the backbone of your over the air system. It will let you watch and record TV via most devices on your home WiFi network. If you have a media center PC or a NAS you can also use it as a DVR so you can watch recorded programming on your tablet (IOS , android, windows, game console). One great aspect of this, is that you don't have to pull antenna cable to watch TV in all the rooms in your house. Since it is on your WiFi network, you can even watch TV in your yard as long as your WiFi sighal is strong enough. You can also purchase additional HDHomeruns if you need more tuners.

    This is a solid tuner with a very quick and painless setup. Paired with a good antenna mounted in the right location, I'm one step closer to cutting the cord.
