We're cutting the cable, and I currently have three TVs, all with computers connected to them.

I already have two Hauppauge 2250 cards, and was looking at buying a HDHomeRun (again, non Prime) for the third systems.

For the PCs I'll be using Windows 7's Media Center for recording/playback, but I started thinking about my Android devices.

Between my wife and I there are three Android devices, a Galaxy S3, Droid 4, and a Kindle Fire (original edition).

We have a 'fast' 802.11n network (actually I have a 2.4 GHz AP and a 5 GHz AP), as well as the rest of the PCs/house being wired.

Anyone use an app to watch live TV on their Android devices using the HDHomeRun?

Even better if it's available on the Amazon App Store.

It just occurred to me that an important bit of information was left out: none of the devices are rooted, and while I might consider rooting them in the future, I am not willing to do it for this sole purpose.

Either I'm misreading the description of the app, or you've misunderstood what I'm looking for.

I'm interested in watching live TV being streamed on my wifi network from a SiliconDust HDHomeRun.

I'm not interested in streaming anything from my HTPCs, or my home server. I already know how to do that.

I don't want to be able to watch TV while I'm in my office at work, in an airport, or at the doctors office.

In other words, if it touches my DSL line, or my 4G Verizon connection, then I have no interest in it.
