I want this thread to be a discussion for the best way to get around Comcast's latest price gouger and that's the new Digital Adapter fees. I have 3 TVs that need a digital adapter in order to receive the comcast guide/remote. They are now charging $6 per month PER TV. That's $18 a month just to be able to watch Comcast on those 3 TVs.
I have an HDhomerun device on my network and currently I'm streaming to 2 computers and one Xbox. I want to add two more computers to my network and give my DTAs back to Comcast.
I've seen some Raspberry Pi like devices here on slickdeals and some very tiny HTPC like devices for around $50 or so. I can't remember what they are called though and that's what I'm hoping people can suggest. Ideally if it has Wireless AC on it that would be awesome.
The DTA rental of $6 per month = $72 a year. So if I can buy one of these devices for less than that I'll save money within a year. I think its criminal what Comcast is doing.
They are also charging a $7 Broadcast TV Fee and a $5 Regional Sports Fee per month too. That's a total of $30 per month (3 DTAs at $6 = 18 + $12 in Fees = $30) in my bill in extra fees ($360 per year).
EDIT: I found some of the boxes I was talking about above.

Does anyone know if these boxes work with HDHomeRun's software via Kodi? I'm wondering if it can decode the Comcast channels properly like a PC or an Xbox 360.
