The HDHomeRun App and DVR Service
We looked at the current media-PC way to record TV. It requires a fair bit of technical know how, high powered media PCs that need to stay on, and often pages of complicated setup.
Enter the HDHomeRun App. Simply put, it’s the 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.

There are only two 'approved' devices at this point, and this is one of them - which is why I bought it.
The PLEX DVR software allows you to schedule recordings on your PLEX Server. Once you setup the DVR in Plex (it was really easy to do - google 'Plex DVR') PLEX will download the 'programming guide' info for the channels that you get. Then it is just a matter of clicking on the show and setting up the recording options for it
Note - I am using this with an Over the Air Antenna. I am in S Cal and I can get about 140 digital channels from the Los Angeles area, about 15 are the ones that I want to watch - main channels like ABS, CBS, etc
I only got this working this morning but so far I have been very pleased. It was very easy to add to my existing Plex Media Server and I am really surprised how the picture quality it is. I am getting ready to 'cut the cord' in another 6 months or so when my Dish subscription ends out, and this looks like a pretty good way to go - especially if you are already a PLEX user
Edit to add - someone asked if this would record two channels at the same time. I noticed this morning that I had it set to record some kids shows in PLEX and sure enough it is recording these two channels at the same time. Also, I was very pleased with the "Gracenote TV Guide" that PLEX uses. For example, I saw the "Commander in Chief" debate was on tonight. I went into Plex and started typing Commander in the search bar, an sure enough it pulled up the listing and I just clicked on it to set up a recording.
photo added to show the two programs recording at same time
Appears to be of good build quality. Solidly made. No buttons, one light on the LAN port. Simple.
The internal web UI for configuration is (charitably) basic, but there's really not much to configure other than transcoding options. Plex can manage the options through its DVR setup anyway. It would be nice if the web UI had some kind of integrated signal strength meter to help with positioning antenna, but there's a free android app that works well enough for this.
I tried the "beta" Android app for watching live TV and the Kodi extension running on my Amazon Fire TV (gen 1). The Android app works OK, though the video seems to stutter a bit. The Kodi extension works flawlessly. It's a little surprising that they don't have better apps since this product has been around for such a long time, but I guess most people use it in conjunction with some other software anyway.
HDHomeRun + Plex DVR is awesome. Having OTA broadcasts appear in Plex is a dream come true. I just canceled my DirecTV service. The only thing I am missing right now is being able to start watching recordings while they are in progress (though this has nothing to do with this hardware, and really just software support - perhaps Plex Live TV will support this).
In order to tape shows, however, you need an external hard drive. SiliconDust pushes the WD NAS drives but you can actually use any external hard drive. The DVR software that SiliconDust provides is as they say a "work in progress" and yes, it is evolving.
Just know this: Once unit is installed on your computer (PC in our case) and your unit is "discovered in set-up", download DVR software. The minimal $35 a year DVR Electronic Programming Guide fee is worth it as you get great visuals and info on shows and search features (AND one E.P.G. can be used with multiple HDHomeRun units in your home)...also "discover" shows feature. (If a show does not populate in search or guide, you can simply search for it to locate.) When setting up DVR software and you go through steps to indicate storage of programming, browse to find your already installed external hard drive and apply change...when you come to external hard drive with NAS set up, if you are NOT using an NAS drive, just click to finish. Our unit found and began using the external drive as it's recording storage source. Note: at time of this review, the instructions on using DVR functionality including recording and options available is extremely limited if at all. The online tutorial videos do not fully address all potential questions that could arise.
*Easy to install
*Unit pulled in over the air signals stronger than original over the air decoder box
*HD viewing on your TV
*NO CABLE BILLS!
*Pairs with downloadable HDHomeRun DVR software (which is evolving.)
*Shows are recorded in .mpeg format which loads easily into our Sony Movie Studio editor
*Can pause a show to grab a large file screen capture (using Microsoft Snipping tool.)
*Instructions are vague on DVR software
*Instructions are vague on FAQ or potential problems
*DVR set up does NOT require their "sponsored" WD NAS drives as heavily pushed (and offers 0 troubleshooting help online at their site or fully explains the options at time of this purchase/review.)
*NO REMOTE. Although your phone can be used to remotely view programming, you MUST have Wi-Fi on and working.
*Cannot manually set DVR to record specific times within a show or manually set to record a channel. (Say if you wanted to record only the first 15 minutes of a 30 minutes show, you can't.)
Our Connect Duo 2-Tuner did record two shows at once and stored them as we directed in our external (Seagate 6tb) drive. To record a show individually rather than an entire "series" you simply click on the show you want to watch and then the 14 days programming guide will populate all of the upcoming shows of that series. Simply click on the line of the show you want to record and the red record button will illuminate to indicate it is scheduled. (you can check in "TASKS" to make sure.
We purchased our unit and everything described and were not compensated in any way for our honest user review.
