Don't even bother with this device unless the ONLY devices you ever watch shows on are fire tv's or tv's with fire sticks in them. It won't work with anything else like roku's etc.

When will they update to stream recorded shows at 1080p, this box seems as if it is from the year 2001 at 720p.

Records broadcast TV (antenna) and streams it to two firesticks.

I would buy one at half that price. It's cool but very limited.

It's really not that bad. Especially if you have Netflix or something. BeYou get all the regular shows CBS,abc, fox, etc etc. A huge majority of sports if you live in a large market. For the average person this would cover 85% of the stuff they watch and pay for with zero monthly fees.

Wait until prime day. The 4 tuner 1tb is 229 right now. I'm guessing it will be on sale on prime day

720p, probably because box stream content to fire stick or other devices.

recordings devices just sucks in this country , very restrictive devices.

Absolutely love my Recast. Do you want to eliminate cable on multiple TV's? This is the easiest solution. Compared this to OTA Tivo and it is simple and less expensive to set up across multiple rooms. The interface is not intuitive however, my wife figured it out, so it passes the wife test. It has a DVR function and a Guide for no additional cost. If you have a question I'll do my best to answer.

Why do you say that? HDHomeRun does not have a DVR function. They are not really compatible in my mind.
