After a successful Kickstarter campaign last year, Silicondust started sending out its HDHomeRun NextGen TV Tuners in October 2020. Now, the OTA network tuners are available on Amazon for $199.
“The new HDHomeRun QUATRO 4K (HDHR5-4K) is the device to upgrade your home entertainment to receive every free channel available in your area,” the company wrote on its Kickstarter page. “It’s built with 4 TV tuners – all 4 tuners receive ATSC 1.0 and 2 of those tuners pick up the new Ultra High Definition ATSC 3.0 broadcasts. We plan to enable multi-channel support so you can watch up to 4 ATSC 3.0 sub-channels across the 2 ATSC 3.0 tuners, all in high definition!”
Here are the features of the HDHomeRun Flex 4K NextGen TV Tuner:
- All the features of the HDHomeRun CONNECT QUATRO & 4K models plus optional DVR by connecting a USB hard drive (requires paid TV guide for DVR record)
