I got this device prior to black Friday for $80 and asked on SD if I could hook up my basic (mandatory) cable tv that my apartment rental adds to the lease (without a cable box from my provider) to this HDHR device. The answer was NO - because cable uses 8vsb qam and OTV ATSC....

In the setup of the HDHR I saw a dropdown for Antenna and Cable? Hmmm.....Well nothing to lose with a test - I hooked up my cable and selected cable on my initial HDHR setup and guess? It pulled 77 channels including HD Channels!!!

I had to manually add each channel guide but now I enjoy this HDHR with basic cable and DVR using Plex Premium. Could not ask for anything better than this!

I'm not saying this will work for every provider but my provider is Hotwire (local small company). Maybe the major providers like ATT, Comcast, COX, Verizon may use 8vsb qam tech but it does not hurt to try! Good luck!!!

I think it's straight $20 off with that code. This was 79.99 for me last week. Bought from Adorama thorough Google Express to save on tax.

Consider yourself lucky. Most (all?) of the big providers encrypt their channels. Can't tune them without a cable card or set top box (which has its own cable card inside). Those folks need the HD HomeRun Prime and a cable card from their provider. Frown

I remember that reply because I wanted to correct that person so I will do it here. Cable uses QAM and ATSC uses 8VSB. QAM and 8VSB are modulation techniques. ATSC is a standard for OTA transmission that includes the modulation but is much broader.

Most tuners can do both 8VSB and QAM because the tuners are designed for TVs that must support both. It is up to the equipment makers on whether to support both in software as well as their HW implementation.

I'm not familiar with all the transmission technology (qam/atsc/8vsb) as I should but my guess was if I'm not using a cable box (cable card) then there is nothing to "protect/scramble" those channels. So for the $25 cable payment I make - might as well use with some investment. Don't need to setup an antenna outside my window for OTA channels. Note OTA was awesome too but it does not give me the ESPNs and all the Turner channels. Anyways this message is for anyone who is in a similar situation and wants to buy the HDHR, but don't buy it as a primary purpose to hook up your cable. The HDHR is for OTA Channels and I was expecting for it to fail...in my case it didn't :-)

My setup:
- Basic Cable - Hotwire
- The HDHR Quatro
- Plex Premium
- Synology 918+ - Plex Server installed (others use NVIDIA SHIELD as a server but have not tried)

Are you able to watch live tv? Plex will not stream live for me.
