HDHomeRun Connect Quatro and Hauppauge Broadway

Some time back I was asking if there was any tv tuner that works with Nvidia Shield (also noticed some other ppl had asked the same thing).

I took a chance and bought the HDhomerun Connect Duo. With this network based tuner, you can watch live tv on the live channels app as well as using the HDhomerun Android TV app. However the bad news is that the EPG does not work with it.

<SNIP>
Thanks, am looking for a similar solution; will be looking for the UK/AU "Connect Quatro" version...

And maybe also looking for the Hauppauge Broadway (some seemingly "old" version sold in SG - although I am unsure if it is able to handle DVB-T2 specifically and I am not happy they transcode to Flash for Android)...

TOP 10 Android TV Box 2018

Nvidia Shield TV is still the best Android TV Box in 2018 and probably in 2019 as well. 😄

No 2/3 do not make much sense to buy even though Rockchip RK3399 is the next best CPU available after Nvidia.

Mi Box Global version is at No 4.

VPN will help increase your ping.

Nvidia Games app currently free. No subscription needed till the end of the year. Its running on beta. Anyway if you have games in your pc steam account, you can play them on nvidia games without turning on your pc. There will be lag here and there but most of the time its all good.

You can change the region but It will route you back to the assign region. No point changing also.

jus to share..managed to get the homerun and antenna.

tried 3 app
1. live channel ( using hdrun and aurora tv as source) - somehow subtitle dun work. no epg. if use aurora as source, for some reason, first load will not load channel. need to switch channel upon load and it will be ok.
2. hdrun app - same as above. no epg
3. aurora tv - got epg and subtitle. so far think this is the best option.
only thing is aurora tv is some what an subscription app.....so not sure how it works...so far haven seen any ad yet. maybe need to watch long duration den will have ad....cant confirm.yet so no time test.
What does EPG refers to?

Using live channel and hdhomerun for awhile now. I think itís excellent for multiple rooms with TV. Have upgraded all to shield and it works very well. Have tried plex, emby, nextpvr. The easiest and stable is shield live channel + hdhomerun. Can live with no sub and Epg. Important is all family members know how to operate without too many steps

Disclaimer: I am not a soccer fan and I do not watch EPL, just carry out some research in VPN recently.
