I’m doing a bit of an upgrade to my network and media setup, but am a bit budget constrained.
One of the things I’m looking at doing is adding a networked TV tuner to the mix, so that I can view TV in rooms without an aerial connection and on tablets/phones etc.
The HD Homerun looks like a nice product for what I want to do. But the NZ pricing for the Quatro is about 65% more expensive than the bricks and mortar US retail pricing, and I will be in a part of the US where retailers stock it in a couple of weeks.
Does anyone know whether the hardware in the US version of the HD Homerun is different to the NZ version, or whether it’s just a case of flashing NZ firmware onto the US version to make it work with Freeview here?
I imagine that for the number of countries they sell it in they would install a tuner that is capable of working in most countries, and then deal with regional differences (ATSC c.f. our DVB-T) thorough firmware. But I’m not certain.
I’m curious whether anyone has successfully imported and used a US version HD Homerun in NZ? (and if so what needs to be done)
