what other service will work with Extend

I just wanted to make sure that nothing as of now works with extend, correct? I was using HD Homerun prime to record my TCM shows, now I don't know what to use. Any help anyone.

The Extend works with your OTA antenna (or perhaps unencrypted cable). You can use that.

i have it directly hooked up to fios cable and used HDHomerun premium, i was able to record TCM. What other service is there that i can record TCM. Probably none until Prime 6 comes out with tuner card, correct? Thanks

You can sometimes still find original Prime units for sale (HDHR3-CC). That device supports CableCARDs. You may even be able to find a commercial 6 tuner model that used 2 CableCARDs (TECH3-6CC, which was essentially 2 Primes with additional firmware features to allow for customized network and tuning situations).

Thanks for the info, tried finding those old models nothing. But im afraid if i do, will it still work with cable cards, i would hate to buy and then not work. I was so happy with HDHR Premium and only lasted 3 weeks before shut down. I was so happy using Plex that i can set DVR to record anything from TCM. It's sad that no other way to do this.
