I have a FireTV edition smart TV, yes they do have HDMI ports that a HTPC can connect to, but the TV will power on in the FireTV menu where you can select the input. But there is an easier way. you can search for the HDHomerun App in fire TV and have the icon right there and watch your live tv throu...

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

I think after the FCC released the CableCard mandate it won't be long before you can't get one anymore. And honestly, I did the numbers and it's honestly no longer a cost savings. I dug out my HomeRunPrime yesterday and went and got a cable card from Spectrum. The guy said this was the last one in ...

Well having 6 tuners with 2 cable cards even renting the second for $10 ish on comcast, still beats renting 6 set top boxes.

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

It has been nearly THREE YEARS since SD started its "Coming Soon" Prime 6 promotion!!! If they ever sell them, it will likely be too late because nearly all of us are mostly streaming TV now, so why waste our money? The delays we have been told of have been because SD has been spending most of its ...

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

IF THEY EVER COME OUT....I'll buy 2 of the Prime 6 units. I currently have 2 of the Prime 3 tuners but are acting up - old. I definitely need to upgrade and hope the new hardware addresses DRM issues as well. I depend on these for my Plex DVR setup. I don't have good reception for OTA antennas whic...

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

Might not order any depends how Xfinity Instant TV looks like. Not looking very good to me. No outside home viewing, 2 consecutive streams at a time, pay a monthly fee, 20 hours cloud DVR that is non transferable. Prime 6 with SD recording, or Emby looks much better for me, even if it is taking 3 y...

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

At least one - then we'll see how it goes, because with padding each channel can end up using two tuners. Using the HDHomerun app, channels, EMBY no way a channel takes up 2 tuners even with padding. I think he meant this example. record 30 minute show on channel 1 at 8:30 with a 2 min before and a...
