Elgato HDHomeRun PRIME App for iPad 2


Elgato has just released the HDHomeRun PRIME App for iPad 2 over at the App Store, where it will play nice with the Silicondust HDHomeRun PRIME line of CableCard-enabled network tuners. To put it in a nutshell, this new app will allow users to stream and record live premium cable TV directly to the iPad 2 – making Apple’s hot selling tablet all the more desirable now.

It does not matter whether you want to watch the news in the kitchen when you are preparing dinner for a hungry family, or perhaps indulge in a little bit of baseball on the patio on a warm evening, or even have a stab at a late night horror show without having to disturb anyone from their slumber. The HDHomeRun PRIME App will pave the way for you to view and record live cable TV anywhere – as long as you remain within the vicinity of your homes Wi-Fi network.

Elgatos HDHomeRun App and Silicondust HDHomeRun PRIME together intend to deliver premium television and DVR capabilities to the iPad 2. First of all, the HDHomeRun PRIME device will send the TV signal directly to the HDHomeRun PRIME App, so you can save even more electricity since there isn’t any need to fire up a computer. Apart from that, the HDHomeRun PRIME App will enable you to record programs straight to your iPad 2, providing the option to transfer those recordings from the iPad 2 to a Mac or PC later on.

To put it in a nutshell, Elgatos latest solution will stream cable TV copy freely channels to the iPad 2, and users who rock with Verizon FiOS or Comcast cable television will have the upper hand since most of channels from these providers are already sent with a copy freely flag.

The HDHomeRun PRIME App won’t be free though considering what it can do – you can pick it up for the introductory price of $17.99 from the App Store, while the HDHomeRun PRIME can be yours for $249.99.

So where is the DirecTV/Dish version of this product. the satellite companies are falling behind the cable TV companies on this front. That’s a reversal from past trends.

Really this is a horrible idea and choice if you have done your homework. The Slingbox Pro-HD is a far better choice for just a few dollars difference. With a 3G tablet you can watch and control live direct tv and your dvr as well as I have my security cameras threw the other input on it. Anything. Anywhere. Way better then just at your house crap.
