hi guys,

im struggling (im probably just blind) to find a "buy now" option for a hd homerun.  I bought one years ago, sold it and went to DVB-S2 for sky at my current place, but moving in a couple of months and will be going back to DVB-T freeview.

I've found

http://www.corsairsolutions.com.au/20110715256/products/sdust-hdhomerundual.html

and
digitalpride (im sure i bought from digital pride before)

but no where can i find a "buy now, take my money!" link.... also surprised to see none on trademe..

if anyone wants to sell one PM me (newer one, not the older model).

+1 for nicegear.

If the official distributor doesn't want to make it easy to take your money, they probably don't deserve it.

Anyway, I can highly recommend nicegear. Hadley is a champion to deal with.

Yeah, I bought from http://www.digitalpride.co.nz/ back in 2010. Incidentally, they sold me a 'defective unit for 1/3 the price, even though it was the previous user who was defective and it's been running mint since I bought it.

From memory I actually emailed them directly, then called, as opposed to using an online purchase form.

I am after this as well. A close source of mine has advised me this device is now branded under Kaiser Baas in AU/NZ. Happy to be proven wrong.

Correct, but Kaiser Baas has no plans to introduce it to NZ (at least when I contacted them just before Christmas).  I suspect there's a bit of weirdness over distribution rights and for now Nicegear are the only official source.

Kaiser Bass is an Australian brand that have been reselling products with their badge for a few years now. They've been selling HD Homerun's with their own branding for a few years now in the Aussie market.

HD Homerun's are still avauilable under the Silicon Dust branding.
