HDHomeRun comes to Mac
Elgato Systems today unveiled an exclusive Mac-compatible bundle of the SiliconDust HDHomeRun network TV tuner with EyeTV 2 software. The HDHomeRun hardware is a centralized networked digital TV tuner that users can share via any Mac on a local area network, offering dual tuners that allow two users to watch or record different programs simultaneously. The HDHomeRun tunes ATSC (over-the-air) digital TV via an antenna, as well as unencrypted digital channels over cable (known as Clear QAM) which provides users with a wide range of free SD and HDTV programs that are broadcast on digital TV as well as cable. The HDHomeRun for Mac is available for $200 from Elgato's online store, and includes the HDHomeRun dual-tuner network device as well as EyeTV software for two computers and two RG6 cables. The device also comes with an Ethernet cable for network connectivity and an AC power adapter.
