Silicondust HDHomeRun Connect

I was lucky enough to be provided a review unit of the Silicondust HDHomeRun Connect. Let it be known, I actually owned an earlier edition of these devices back in the day. Regret actually getting rid of it these days.

Meanwhile, the new units are absolutely awesome. The out of box setup and experience is so much better with the new model. Since you can actually connect to the web server built into the unit which helps with configuration.

Setting it up was so easy, when done I was then able to stream the TV channel straight to my VLC application to watch it live. Below is some images of the process where I configured my unit.

I love being able to have a DVB tuner available on my network and not need to have my computer on to use it. My Samsung Smart TV can access the Silicondust HDHomeRun Connect TV channels via the upnp/DLNA client. The network tuner makes the channels available over upnp/DLNA.

I would recommend this unit to anyone if you would like to have a Digital DVB tuner on your network.
