  • Summary: I bought this to replace the Elgato Hybrid, which of course is not made anymore for North America. The HDHomeRun doesn't work because it cannot scan the signal being put out by my digital box. So totally of no use to me.

  • Summary: For the first year it seemed to be recording and suddenly it stopped recording but I could not see why - the computer was working fine otherwise. Then after one year the free link to TV Guide stopped and I was asked to pay, which I declined. Now I use it infrequently.

Unreliable, Frustrating Device and Software

T. Anderson, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: I have set up a home theater including a new Mac Mini (2012) and hoped this product would work well with the Mac as a DVR and TV tuner. To briefly summarize my system, I have cable feeding the HDHomeRun Tuner.

Super cheap TV

Dan Robbins, Amazon
10 February 2013
  • Summary: I used my HDHR to "cut the cable." When you consider you'll normally pay cable and satellite providers $1,500 to $2,000 a year for free, over-the-air television programming, this product seems like quite a steal.

Great for recording on a Mac.

Aaron Halsey, Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: Tuner performance is great. I record over the air signals, and it seams to perform just as we'll as my tv tuner. I have had some issues with the software not recording the right program or not recording at all.

Works OK

27 December 2012
  • Summary: I am still deciding if I like this purchase. I have Mac and PC's so I payed more for the Mac software. I wanted to watch it on my phone but I have android and not Apple based phone. So I can only use my phone to change the channels.

Hot damn - free HD TV on my Mac

John E. Vidale "conventional Earth scientist", Amazon
23 November 2012
  • Summary: I had only web tv channels, and was suffering through low definition youtube versions of tv, and pirated low-def versions of sports event, and a friend told me about this wonder. I bought this and a Leaf antenna to hook up with my home Mac computer, and suddenly I have 30 HD channels.
