I recently rebuilt my HTPC, and when I reinstalled the HD Homerun software, it did a firmware update. Now when I look at the TV front end I find this in the settings (see image), and the ability to select programmes to record (it doesn't actually record them though).


Has anyone else risked $35 to see if the DVR service will work with an old Dual device?


I've been using MediaPortal 2 to set the recordings, but watch on VLC because I can't stand the garish colours and laggy sound on MP2.

I've been using my hdhomerun on plex since that was sorted (read as less crap where it didn't have our listings).  I migrated over from nextpvr.....or on the really odd occasion I need live, I'll use plex, or a IOS hdhomerun app.


I have the old dual dvb-t tuner (not the connect model) but it works fine for the amount I record - ie bugger all.

I just don't know why you'd pay money for a DVR service when there are such excellent free options as tvheadend, with full HDHR support.

Maybe because I didn't know about it?

I used it for a year on my Quatro tuner, to do recordings on my to synology NAS, however when I got Plex lifetime pass (at a discount), I changed to just using plex to use the tuner using it's own programme guide. It works fine, but the interface took a bit of getting used to.
