Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Apparently this needs to be said again: the CPU used in the original PRIME was discontinued and we literally bought every available one and built devices with them. It was physically impossible for us to build any more than we did. So...u couldn't just use a newer cpu and call it a Rev. 2. Most rou...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

dont change the fact that the comcasts stores here do not give out any more cable card and can not add any more to account. Then contact the FCC and file a complaint. What makes u think they care or woudl do anything? I tried that route when they raised the price of the CC rental and removed the "c...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

I believe cable companies are required to offer cable cards to customers unless it is a small company and applies for a waiver from the FCC: https://www.tivocommunity.com/community/index.php?threads/are-cable-operators-required-to-provide-cable-cards.552443/ that forum is from 2017....lot can chang...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

It is a network tuner....used to view TV on computer....not a HDMI device u connect to TV. (like a Rouk or Apple TV) If u are not familiar with how SD tuners work, I suggest you do some more research. There is HDHR app and other media server like apps and server software, Like PLex, Emby, Channels ...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Hello, First time poster, so go easy on the newbie please. :) So I have been reading and searching best I can regarding HD HomeRun and see the Prime 3 is discontinued, and can only be found used on ebay, etc. And there is (I hope) a newer Prime 6 device coming out some time in the (near I hope) fut...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

There are not any "Protected" channels that I care about or subscribe to from Xfinity.
My current Prime gets all the channels my cable box does, expect for the VOD...which I never use...to slow and clunky and limited.

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Jason and Ned, I'm still excited for the prime 6. The prime 3 serves we well right now but I see need for a 6 in the future. That being said has SD considered a Kickstarter campaign? I know it sounds wierd especially at this point but maybe it would be the way to go. Hear me out. It would allow SD ...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

What good would that do for you now, that model is EOL, not being made anymore, far as I knew. So "analyzing" would do nothing to improve on anything... How about focusing on manufacturing the Prime 6 Tuner eh?...lolz. Offering to help. We will do our best to analyze and repair so you can use it ag...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

It was on this very fourm that one of you stated that a certain gen was known for weak tuners No. All HDHomeRun PRIME (HDHR3-CC) units use the same tuners and RF input stage. The RF performance exceeds cable industry certification goals and every unit is RF tested at factory. The tuners gradualy fa...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

You should not bee seeing units fail like that. There are no known issues or "generations". The HDHomeRun PRIME (and all newer models) are specifically designed with high quality ceramic capacitors to ensure that there are no lifespan-limited components inside the HDHomeRun. Other consumer electron...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

Ive been through 4 Prime tuners over the last 6 years [removed by moderator] I've never heard such a thing from anyone. You must have bad power in your house and it's blowing them out. If I'd gone through 4 in 6 years, I wouldn't be using that product. That's nuts. Nope...power is quite stable, reg...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

None, I have two Prime 3s and as long as they're working I'm keeping them. There's something to be said for redundancy. And it remains to be seen if the Prime 6s will be as hardy and "just work" like the Prime 3s have. If they are ever actually sold. Ive been through 4 Prime tuners over the last 6 ...

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

Not expecting to see this product anytime soon......seem they have to go back to the drawing board.....that notice they posted seems to me so.
Cable card tuners seem to be a dying breed.

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

i dont expect this product anytime soon..not for years or at all...clearly shown by their removal of advertising and a "back to the drawing board" type notice
And that others should consider other alternatives...
