The HDHomeRun App and DVR Serv

Simply put, the HDHomeRun App is a 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 favorite 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…install 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.

This is exactly what I’m looking for. Any monthly service fees or just one time purchase of the hardware? I do have that gigantic antenna in the attic so I’m going to try this out.

Great review I just ordered one through your amazon link going to hook it up via Plex

Ray Shirley says:

I have owned the Duo for about a month and it works great! I purchased the Channels App for both the Apple TV 4 and the Ipad version. I am testing out the $8.00 a month subscription to the dvr service. Also, if you can use Plex to watch live tv and if you are a Plex Pass subscriber, you get the Plex dvr service. My only grip (and why I am trying out the Channels DVR service) is that the HomeRun HD service and the Plex DVR service do not offer a standard grid guide. I have read that Plex is working on getting one.
