SiliconDust HDHomeRun LiveTV Now Supported in Kodi (XBMC)

This is some great news for anyone that’s ever tried using the HDHomeRun within XBMC (now called Kodi), as there’s now an add-on which adds some slick support for your network based tuners. Still no recording functionality for now, but at least it’s a step in the right direction. And just in time for the Tourney!

No longer will you be required to muck around with XMLTV files or playlists in order to get your HDHomeRun running.


The best feature is the lack of configuration required. As long as you have a functioning HDHomeRun setup, just download the app inside the repo and run it. You will be presented with a beautiful channel listing and associated guide data.


  • I installed this last night

    I installed this last night and it took about 5 seconds to install through the add-on list in Kodi.  It immediately started displaying live TV.  I didn’t get the pretty guide like the one shown in the video, but it will probably take a while to populate before it starts displaying the nice logos and such.  The search feature looks pretty sweet and appears to have a lot of versatility.

    Now if they can only get this set up to use as a DVR then I could get away from the WMC interface and stick with Kodi.  I tried going the serverwmc route and didn’t have much luck with it.  To be fair, I didn’t have a lot of time to experiment with it so I never actually got it configured properly.

    The wife uses WMC only for live TV and also uses XBMC for watching videos from my server so this would make life a bit simpler for her.
