HDHomeRun Prime 6 update?

Post by mikesalz » Sat Apr 06, 2019 4:29 pm

With Premium TV now off the table, can you give us any idea when the Prime 6 might be available? Even if just a general "within the next three months" would be sufficient. Thanks in advance!

I was just going to post, although we all want an exact date, SD already announced when it will be released, sometime in 2019

Didn't SD announce that it would be available in 2018? Meaning, don't hold your breath.

That will make an excellent Christmas Gift to myself. I’d rather be patient, and have a worry free device.

I really hope you offer a strong trade up promotion if you ever release the Prime 6. Cablecard fees have killed all the savings of having our own equipment.

Right now people are willing to spend a decent penny on the current Prime 3's because they want to cord shave and when it became unavailable it left them with no choice but to either wait, or buy them at inflated prices on ebay. If you have more than 1 and wish to get a decent payback, sell one and limp along until the 6 comes.

Also there will still be a market for the 3s after the 6 comes out. Some will not want to pay $200 for a 6 if its only them, or a couple where the 3 would be sufficient, they would probably want to purchase an old 3 and as their needs grow upgrade to the 6.
I myself would probably opt to rent a second card for the 6 to have 9 tuners total, and if the time comes for 3 more tuners, I'll buy another 6 and swap the card from the 3 and sell it or let a friend borrow it to test the system out.

I have two 3s but only use one as there were countless problems in Plex with conflict between the two. I put way too much time trying to get it to work properly. So I am looking forward to the 6.

Emby never had a problem supporting my two Primes nor my current Quatros..

Why not offer your second one for sale? recoup that cost somewhat and use it towards the 6 when it comes out. trying to sell it after the 6 comes out would be less profitable for you as many others would put theirs up at the same time as well and flood the market.

Plex DVR is not good at all Sharing multiple tuners … go with another DVR Plex DVR is the worst.

I thought about that since I have 2 Primes .. but Murphy's Law once I sell one the other will fail and then I have none. I prefer to have 2 3 tuners than 1 6 Tuner.
