Just cut cable, got gifted Roku

Post by RayDas »

I got gifted a Roku Express 4K+ contraption, how will this work with my HDHomerun setup? I disconnected my cable card tuner, but I have my two OTA tuners for the OTA stuff. I guess I am curious if I will be able to record any of the Roku stuff with my HDHomerun DVR.

Thanks

It basically works like any other HDHomeRun client device, install the HDHomeRun app and use it from there. It will only record from HDHomeRun tuners.

So far I think I like Roku.

I was trying to figure out how to record some Roku stuff, but it does not have a dvr capability. I was thinking that maybe I could do the recording via the HDHomerun dvr, no such luck, or I have not found the secret.

Since my Roku setup uses the WiFi, I am impressed with the quality of the picture that I am receiving. I was trying to figure how to do a lan setup, but could not find how to do it.

To bad Silicon Dust does not have a solution for using their dvr to record Roku selections.

This is incorrect, the HDHomeRun app for Roku does supports DVR features.

I believe the poster appears to be wanting to record roku channels not tv channels.
