HDHomeRunner for Mac

October 12, 2007 at 11:08 pm Leave a comment

I haven’t posted much about the HDHomeRun that I got last week, partially because I’m still trying to figure out how much I like it.

Though, I’m still not posting about the HDHomeRun, I suppose…  Tonight, I ran across an app called HDHomeRunner for the Mac platform in the Silicon Dust forums.  Since I have a Mac, I figured I’d test it out.

First, it is very basic and the user interface is not the most intuitive.  I was very unsure how to start using it, as nothing I tried seemed to result in anything good happening for about the first 3 minutes that I tried.  Ultimately, I figured out that you need to AutoScan Channels (via the menu item) to get started.

It’s not going to replace any of the commercial DVR apps out there any time soon, but it is a good FREE way to watch HD TV on your Mac.  It doesn’t support recording yet, but does allow you to stream live TV directly from the HDHomeRun to your Mac (using VLC), and if you hit the “i” button, you’ll get some useful signal strength info about the currently selected TV station.
