hi guys, 

figured i'd post here before throwing this up on trademe.  I have a hd home run (the newer model, small black single dvb-t input for dual tuner and not the older model that required two antenna inputs).  bought it directly from the nz reseller, but have gotten a quad tuner DVB-S2 card now and no need for 6 tuners so figured I'd sell this off.

wanting $160 with free shipping anywhere in nz.  anyone interested?

i have the original box and everything.

You can't. You need the drivers installed on your PC.

yeah you need a pc/mac to use this for most things.  i believe you can watch live tv using it on some devices (iPad?) but mostly used for a PVR like windows media center or nextpvr etc.

what xbox media center as in xbmc or windows media center on xbox (which you need a pc to use anyway)

i believe you can watch live streams via xbmc via these devices, you may have to double check, pretty sure they serve channels as a standard stream..  pretty sure.. you should double check though.

"Fees for receiving domestic payments.
Flat fee will be charged as follows: $0.45 NZD for payments in New Zealand Dollars. "
