Cord-cutters, take note: the HDHomeRun might be the sort of house-streaming TV technology you're looking for.
For those who have succeeded in cutting the cord on their cable television, solutions for sensible TV streaming are, to say the least, a challenge. The Elgato HDHomeRun, announced today, offers up a small box that connects to a router and TV antenna and streams HD TV content via Wi-Fi anywhere in one's house. More importantly, unlike other Elgato products, the HDHomeRun comes with dual TV tuners for watching simultaneous recordings/viewings of two different channels on two different computers.
The $179 HDHomeRun is a small box that offers a lot of the same features as the small USB-stick
The HDHomeRun is compatible with iOS devices--the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch--via the EyeTV app we also covered with the EyeTV Hybrid review. However, that also means you'll probably still need a Mac on in the background to stream TV content to your iOS device.
The Elgato HDHomeRun looks like a rebranding of the same-named device made by Silicon Dust. Check out the video below for the product pitch.
The HDHomeRun is currently available.
