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!

My recommendations:

HDHomeRunPrime provides cable card decryption for my Comcast TV. Converting the encrypted channels that you pay for (anything above ch 30 and above) into IPTV format.
I have tested it with Microsoft Media Center and have found that it works well streaming the content real time over the Ethernet. For those who do not have Microsoft you should be glad to know that they support a variety of TV watching applications (on Linux to boot). However their is one big thing to note. If a broadcast has been flagged on TV you cannot watch or record it on any program except Microsoft Media Center. Be sure to check to see if your TV provider flags all broadcasts or leaves it off by default. Comcast (which I have) leaves about 99% of their TV programing un-flagged by default. ALSO for flagged broadcasts be sure your have a complete hdcp complaint setup as the flag requires that type of DRM.

Now as for streaming stability, I have noticed that if you go to wireless and attempt to access HDTV their will be some glitches as wireless does not provide the consistent quality of service and will drop packets causing your show to stutter. Wireless N might be a possible solution to solve this issue. However all I have is wireless A and G so I cannot test N.

Recording TV shows on any PC is now possible no matter its location in the house. We have three pc's and this device can send HD TV to all three without even breaking a sweat. Keep in mind if you have Ethernet over power in your home it will have the same issues as wireless. (How do you think I know that >_>

Silicon Dust provides a TV preview window so that you can quickly see if the device is working when you activate it.
