HDHomeRun Prime Setup

Post by neotuff » Fri Aug 02, 2019 6:53 pm

I bought a used HDHomerun Prime unit from eBay, but it just won't detect it. I followed all the guides/instructions online, but it keeps giving the same "HDHomerun not detected. Please check that it is plugged it and retry. " error.

The coax and cat6 cables are properly wired (tried different cables as well)

coax => splitter => Router and HDHomerun

router => ethernet => HDHomerun

I think the device is defective, but I want to be sure before I return it.

Thank you.

EDIT:
Middle of 3 tuner LEDs is blinking, no other LEDs lit.
Troubleshooting guide says that this indicates a hardware issue with your HDHomeRun. Please open a support ticket.
