Is libhdhomerun still being updated?
I wanted to explore creating a software program to integrate pc based tuners into your platform, is there anyway to do this.

libhdhomerun is updated as needed.

I don't really understand what you're hoping to accomplish. libhdhomerun usage is limited these days, with most programs having moved on to using the HTTP interface provided in newer devices. Attempting to back engineer something else to be controllable by libhdhomerun is probably a much worse idea than just writing a program to control whatever tuner you want to use directly through the Windows BDA system or the Linux DVB API. The HDHomeRun DVR isn't going to work with a non-HDHomeRun tuner, as another tuner isn't going to work with any of the backend systems that the DVR relies on, like our guide system.
