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!

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 ...Read more ›

So I set out to see if there was a way to avoid paying the fees and get my television channels back. I am happy to say that you can do that with the HD Homerun Prime with a little bit of work and a few more gadgets.
The HD HomeRun supports the CableCARD format - something that used to be on every television set in the early days of HD but is now relegated to Tivo and a few other obscure devices. They basically act as a key to unlock encrypted channels that you're paying for in your subscription plan. In my case the card was "cheaper than free" in that I received the card for no charge and will now get a $2.50 credit on my invoice for customer-owned equipment.
After plugging the card in and calling my cable company for activation, I connected the HD HomeRun to my network and it immediately popped up on my Mac using the free and open source VLC video player. I was able to watch most of my cable television channels, but a few like HBO were still inaccessible.
Enter Windows Media Center (WMC).
Windows Media Center is included in many versions of Windows and can be purchased as an add-on for Windows 8. It also has been blessed by the high priests of the cable industry and has adequate copy protections in place to receive premium networks like HBO and other networks that run 'no copy' rules like ESPN. I installed WMC on a recent Sony Vaio laptop and was surprised by how nicely everything ran with it.Read more ›
