News - HDHomeRun DVR now supports protected (DRM) channels on XBox One and some Windows 10 machines

SilconDust promised it, and it's certainly taken longer than expected, but if you've been waiting for protected CableCARD content support from the HDHomeRun DVR you can finally dive in. If you have an XBox One, or are one of the lucky Windows 10 users where it works.

Details are a bit light on what separates the have/have nots on W10, but if you are one of the unlucky - you will need to get back into wait mode.

News - SiliconDust Annouces Kickstarter Campaign for HDHomeRun DVR

I have to admit to being struck a bit speechless by the scope of the HDHomeRun DVR project here are some highlights, but frankly there's so much awesome that it's probably best to check out the Kickstarter page for the full scoop.

  • Will supprot projected CableCARD content
  • Backends for Windows, Mac, Linux, WD MyCloud NAS, & QNAP NAS
  • Clients for Windows, Mac, & Android
  • Potential clients for Kodi & iOS
  • US, Canada, UK, & Australia regions supported
  • Update: Plex Support, Direct DVR playing, Live TV Channel Support

UPDATE:

I got a chance to ask SD about the time frames for the project:

Target is Fall / Holiday release for  US / CA / UK / AU  with European  regional EPG roll outs after that  (not the  HDHR4-2DT level for DVB-T and T2 customers)
if stretch goal are met then we will continue to develop on iOS and Kodi  and work with other desired devices...

UPDATE 5/18:

Less than 2 days left in the Kickstarter campaign, so help them out if you haven't yet checked out the plan!

UPDATE 5/19:

They passed the PLEX flex goal, and we will not see Live TV and DVR connection right in PLEX for all the platforms. They are working with PLEX to make this happen faster. Stay tuned, we are getting a release calendar from SiliconDust to help with any confusion. -Kyle

UPDATE 5/19 PART TWO:

SiliconDust is working directly with Plex for playback support for DVR content in the native application, Live TV in a Plex Channel, and Scheduling of Recording right inside Plex.

Release calendar:

First Beta for software in June, Plex playback soon after first release, full Plex Channel in July. Shooting for early fall for Official Release.
