I forgot I posted this thread!
Channels and the SD box are a perfect match and it was dead simple to set up. I went from plugging in the tuner to using the app in about 5 minuted. Haven't tried the DVR beta but am anxious to. Also worth noting that the HD streaming over 802.11ac is impressively stable.
I'm using an unamplified RCA mini directional mounted on the back of my house, directly run to the Connect, and it pulls in an impressive list of OTAs (about 30 that I might actually want to watch). The Apple TV in our living room is hardwired for gigabit, but I have found it nigh impossible to run cat6 up to the second floor of our house (1889 and on the smallish side) so have to depend on the AirPort Extreme to hump a usable signal up there. The Connect is plugged into a 10/100 switch in my basement where my keystone panel is.
Meh. The HD Homeruns only have 10/100 connections and it's not like that switch is doing anything major (the only other things plugged into it are IP cameras and their corresponding DVR).The last switch needs replacing really soon to a Gigabit switch!
That's the quandary I am facing right now. I'm also wondering how the recordings are stored (raw mpeg or a container file).I only have local channels debating it its worth the $8 a month for the DVR. I have tried Plex DVR but did'nt really care for its incorporation into my library, plus it missed recordings
