Topic # 111706 12-Nov-2012 18:00 Send private message

Very interested in this product

But a few Questions:

# What type of Aerial can I use? As in do i need UHF/HD or SkyDish be fine?

# How many Devices can be watching at the same time ( Same Channel )

# What type of Network is suitable ( Currently have 100/1000 Switch )

Is there only one supplier in New Zealand http://nicegear.co.nz/dvb-cards/silicondust-hdhomerun/

The HD Homerun is a DVB-T / DVB-C product. It's not DVB-S so won't work with a satellite.

The number of channels and devices accessing it depends entirely on the software you're using.

It's a standard 100Mbps FE connection so will work fine with any type of hardware.

It uses UHF, not satellite dish.

You can have two devices watching at the same time - one for each tuner, even if it's the same channel.

The faster the network the better, but the HDHomeRun itself is only 100 Mbps.
