Where Can I Get a Digital Tuner Converter That Doesn't Burn Out?

Digital TV Tuner

Episode 1756

Adam from Burbank, CA

Adam has an older Mitsubishi HD TV that he really loves. It still works fine, but he needs an over the air converter that won't burn out over time and has component out. Leo says that Silicon Dust's HD Home Run or Channel Master's DVR are his best options. But Adam may have to get an HDMI to a Component converter for the video out. But using one of those will open up other digital tuners as well. The nice thing about the HD HomeRun though, is that he can watch TV anywhere in the house by connecting a Roku device and using the HD HomeRun app.

Johnny from Atlanta, GA

Johnny has an Eero mesh router and is attaching his HD HomeRun DVR to his network through powerline networking. Will he have issues with configuring it? Leo says that the HDHomeRun software should do it automatically. But if he's doing it manually, he can go into Eero settings under devices and see the IP addresses of each device. But the HDHomeRun has automatic discovery. It should connect to the network on its own with no manual entering. 

What's the Best Over-the-Air DVR?

Episode 1577

Mike from Long Beach, CA

Mike is thinking of getting an over-the-air DVR and antenna. What's the best one to get? Leo says he's a TiVO fan, but it is the priciest option out there. There's also ChannelMaster, which is a nice OTA and they don't charge for the TV Guide. Silicon Dust also makes the HD Home Run. But Leo is a fan of TiVO because it lets him ad-skip.
