SiliconDust HDHomeRun EXTEND networked OTA tuner on sale for $119.99 [Expired]


The SiliconDust HDHomeRun Extend is currently on sale for $119.99 on Amazon. In the last year, I’ve only seen this priced lower once, which was when it was $110 around Black Friday. The SiliconDust HDHomeRun Extend is a simple device that lets you watch over-the-air (OTA) local broadcasts through your Fire TV. Simply connect it to your network, via WiFi or ethernet, and plug in a digital antenna. Then load up the HDHomeRun App on your Fire TV and watch live TV. Alternatively, you can use the official Kodi plugin that lets you watch live TV directly within Kodi. Using a PC and software like NextPVR you can even have DVR functionality. HDHomeRun themselves will soon be releasing their own DVR software as a result of their successful Kickstarter campaign. The HDHomeRun Extend has two tuners, so you can watch or record two different channels simultaneously.

    Most newer TVs already have an ATSC tuner. I think I would just use the TV tuner to watch OTA TV.

    You can buy an older Tivo HD with lifetime service for around $200 and get two tuners with a full fledged DVR.

    I’m not sure the HD Homerun is worth it.

    I think it’s totally worth it if you want to “share” your OTA/DVR with a multi-room dwelling. You have one COAX run to the HDHomeRun and then you’re good. I currently have a TiVo, but also have to pair it with a Slingbox to share it’s video to other bedrooms. The HDHomeRun would greatly simplify this setup….
