SiliconDust HDHomeRun Prime

silicondust-hdhomerun-primeLooking for a great Christmas gift for your tech savvy significant other? This may just be the ticket. The Silicon HDHomeRun Prime is a cable TV tuner for computers – Ethernet attached. Once the cablecard tuner is connected to your home router you can access the HDHomeRun Tuners from any computer, anywhere in your home. HDHomeRun PRIME supports CableCARD™ conditional access, providing access to the premium cable channels from your PC. Insert an M-Card cablecard from your cable provider and you’ll be able to watch and record all the digital cable channels you subscribe to, including HD and premium channels in 100% digital quality.
HDHomeRun Prime works with Windows 7 Windows Media Center, providing the full DVR experience. Watch/Pause/Record live TV, schedule simultaneous recordings by name, set up season passes, and watch any time. Don’t have a PC next to your TV? No problem. Use an Xbox360 or other Media Center Extender and you’ll have access to live TV and all the recorded TV on your main PC. Whether you’re using a Mac, Windows PC or Linux, you can have your cable tv streaming to just about every device in your house, including your iPad, in just a few minutes. I’ve been testing this for 3 days now and other than having issues with Time Warner Cable being able to pair the Prime with their cable card, it is working flawlessly….Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
