The HDhomerun is very easy to set up and use. I don't know why Willy
Boydsays you have toput in xmltvid's. I never had to do that. I
can't compare the HDhomerun's
tuner against any other HD tuners. I hooked it up and it gets all my local
HD channels. That is all I know.
I am a harsh critic and I rate the HDhomerun as a 9 out of 10. It loses one
point because: no static ip address option, no wall mounting holes, and a
wall wart AC adapter.
