    Great concept, but it’s too expensive. I recently picked up a Refurbed OTA Tivo Roamio with Lifetime Membership for $199, which provides more bang for the buck. However when the price drops and it has at least two tuners, I would be interested.

  • Don K

    A little expensive, It kind of performs a similar function to an HDHomerun and an antenna, which could be bought for considerably less and you would have two tuners (the HDHomerun would require some network wiring though). As with most antennas, your millage may vary. The only way that your going to get 60-mile coverage is if there is flat ground and no obstructions between you and the transmitter–a pretty rare scenario.

      Yeah, if this is just an indoor antenna, it’s not going to be useful for most people. Even if it has great DVR and Roku capabilities.

      HDHomerun doesn’t need much in the way of “network” wiring, but it does require RG6 wiring to a well-placed antenna. My HDHomerun Extend sits on the same entertainment cabinet as my DSL modem, WIFI router, and my family room’s BD player and Roku. One end of RG6 was already in that spot. The only wiring I did was diverted some of the already-run RG6 in my house to tie it into an existing attic antenna, flipped around a few splitters, and now the attic is distributed to the HDHomerun in one room and directly to two TVs in other rooms.

      If someone previously had Dish or DirecTV, it would be even easier. Just set a broadcast antenna on the mount that you probably still have on your roof or a pole on your property (they never recover their own antennas) and use the existing RG6 still coming from that location. Then you just set up your HDHomerun (or another network tuner) wherever your Dish/DirecTV converter box used to be.

  • Seems a lot like a Tablo OTA DVR but with only one tuner and an integrated antenna. Not being able to pause live TV and no way to organize recordings are very disappointing.
