Style Name: 2 Tuners HD
As a developer of software for HDHomeruns (I have an app for measuring signal quality, Signal GH, in the iOS App Store) I keep an eye on new hardware from SiliconDust. Thus, I was willing to buy a copy when the HDTC-2US transcoding tuner came out even though I have more than enough tuners in my house. Unfortunately, while this device was built with growing functionality in mind, with its transcoding feature and generally beefier hardware, it hasn't grown yet. It might be a better idea to purchase a much cheaper old dual tuner model and wait for software to be released for this model (which should be cheaper then too).

SiliconDust claims this contains a next generation, more sensitive, less noisy tuner and I can confirm (via looking at a middling channel with my app) that their is a noticeable improvement in symbol error rate (a measure of how the data stream is degraded and what the device itself gives as a measure of quality) over the previous generation single and dual tuner models. If you have a channel which is maddeningly close to working, this tuner may be the difference between working and not working. The effect is small, perhaps a 3% improvement in signal quality; where the older tuner might show 74% symbol quality, this tuner might show 77% symbol quality, but it is consistently better. This was against the blue single HDHomerun and the dual model both of which are cheaper if you can find them.

Thanks for the review, Glenn. We have released a couple new firmware versions to improve the fan behavior, and we have more in the works. Support for transcoded video in EyeTV, MythTV, and WMC is now available as well. We're working on getting approval for conversion of the audio. It's not quite as simple as just writing a check, it requires approval from certain companies and the process takes quite a while to complete (just ask any app developer who has gone through it). As soon as we get approval, that will be made available via firmware update.

I've been following this product since it was first promised earlier this year. I read all the gotchas, problems, etc, and thought I would be able to use that knowledge to help when I finally got the product myself and installed it. I also have an HDHR so thought it would be similar. Here's my experience:

I received it today (wonderful one-day shipping from Amazon), and had picked up my MCard (CableCard) at Cox yesterday. Hooked everything up, plugged everything in, and went through the install - so far pretty straightforward. The setup did upgrade the firmware to 20110830, however, on SiliconDust's website they've released 20110920beta1, so I went ahead and upgraded to the latest. Finally get to the part where you call your cable company, and that's where things started getting interesting. The first call activated successfully, and I thought it was done, I said thank you and goodbye. But I only got basic channels, not extended (no ESPN, CNN, etc). So I called back, and she sent "hits" and "INITs", to no avail. Finally she had me unplug the Prime, pull out the CableCard, plug it back in and re-insert the CableCard. Then she re-paired it. But in my error, I gave her the wrong codes (you give them three ID codes). I didn't know that when you unplug, remove and reinsert the CableCard, it generates a new ID for the Data code. The other two codes are static. She couldn't get it to pair up again, but strangely, I started receiving all the channels! So we assumed everything was fine, even though it wasn't activated. Sure enough, in a few minutes I lost the channels again. A third call to Cox, and I gave him the correct codes (even though he was on the verge of saying he would just as soon send a tech out), and finally, it all worked!

I was tired of renting a DVR and cable modem for $36+tax/mo from Time-Warner Cable, so I decided to buy my own equipment.

Replacing the cable modem was pretty easy - just get one from their list and call them with the MAC address and return theirs, it'll pay for itself in under a year.

Replacing the DVR required more effort but the end result is much better than a rented DVR. The HDHomeRun PRIME is the start for CableCard-based independence.

With Time-Warner Cable, here's what you need:

1. The HDHomeRun PRIME
2. A CableCard from Time-Warner Cable ($2.50/month)
3. A free Cisco DTA 170HD Digital Transport Adapter (connected via USB to the HDHomeRun PRIME, it transparently re-tunes switched digital video) from Time-Warner Cable
4. Windows Media Center on a PC that's on your LAN. This is a must; nothing else will play anything but local broadcast TV on Time-Warner!
5. Activate the CableCard as well as the Cisco Adapter with customer support over the phone. You'll use your web browser to see the HDHomeRun PRIME, and plan on 1/2 to 1 hour to get to the right support rep
6. Install the HDHomeRun PRIME software/driver on the PC
7. Get Windows Media Center PC properly configured for the HDHomeRun PRIME. This is pretty quick from WMC's tasks - settings menus

The reason that Windows Media Center is the only viable computer software for TWC is that TWC transmits the copy-once flag for virtually every channel. Connect any other PC/Mac program (including VLC) to the HDHomeRun Prime and it will refuse to play almost all channels within one second or less. The Time-Warner people confirmed for me that WMC is the only fully functional computer-based solution.
