SiliconDust HDHomeRun Prime Officially Available for Pre-order

The long and torturous wait for the SiliconDust HDHomeRun Prime is almost over. Today, SiliconDust has just given word that the three tuner variant, HDHR3-CC, is available for pre-order from Newegg for $250 with a ship date of June 29th. 

The six-tuner variant, HDHR6-CC-3X2, should become available for pre-order next week at a price of $499.

HDHomeRun PRIME is available for pre-order from NewEgg today, with HDHomeRun PRIME 6CC to be available for pre-order in the coming week. Orders will be fulfilled by Newegg in the order in which they are received for each model. Both models are expected to begin shipping in volume in July, with the 6-tuner model expected to ship a little ahead of the 3-tuner model.

    I went ahead and put in a pre-order. I’m not totally sure I am going to go through with the purchase but I figure I have over a month to decide. I definitely want one long-term, its really just whether I want to afford it now or not.

    I’m pretty excited about this. If my wife has one complaint about our HTPC it’s the lack of certain channels (I’m afraid of what would happen using an IR blasted settop box). The Ceton InfiniTV4 was a bit more money than I wanted to spend, but I’ll take 1 less tuner for the $150 savings.

    Finally! Still a bit of a wait (which hopefully does not get extended), but I think that I will be very happy with it in the end. The price point is good and I like the idea that it’s a standalone that can be shared without requiring a host machine running.

    It would have really been cool if the cable industry hadn’t moved to blanket encryption before we had some PC options on the market. Definitely looking forward to regaining the WMC7 interface and ditching the crap Motorola DVR (at least it’s free for the time being).

    For those in the know.

    So do you think these are wise investments with all the streaming options and Allvid talk that is going on. I don’t want to drop a chunk of change on cable card equipment to have Comcast abandon it in six months.

    • Don’t worry, Comcast isn’t

      Don’t worry, Comcast isn’t going to throw out CableCARD. Almost every single Cable STB in existence relies on CableCARD to operate.
