    Hello,
    I am in need of tuner for DVB-T. I am wondering on one of these devices:

    1. Elgato Netstream DTT (comes with EyeTV license).

    2. HDHomeRun DUAL.

    I have to buy new tuner, and I have chosen dual tuner for ethernet streaming (right now I use some old Terratec USB tuner compatible with my EyeTV app).
    I need to chose one, I have only macs & iPhones in my network, bought app EyeTV from appstore for iOS, but still don't know if it will work with HDHomeRun DUAL. I know that EyeTV can not get DVB-T MPEG4 signal (in my country MPEG4 is required for DVB-T tuners) from tuner without mac. So no bonus on Netstream.
    I wonder which of these devices has better hardware?
    I have a license for EyeTV (from not working tuner bundle from Elgato).
    Has anyone tested both devices? Which one is more sensitive?
    Which one is better?
    I now that HDHomeRun is also DVB-C compatible.
    Please help.
