Greetings! Let me start by saying I am wicked cheap.
I would LOVE to ditch premium cable if wife would let me...not sure she will. Slowly, I have been making inroads - she likes xbmc if I am there to control it.
I would like to try ditching a cable box I have in the basement; xbmc effectively replaces on demand programming, and the box does not have a DVR - working on getting hdhomerun as a tuner so I can ditch my cable box.
My question, specifically, is this: if I buy the hdhomerun now (not prime), and decide later that I need one with a cablecard, will the non-prime hdhomerun tuner be useless? OR, can I connect the prime to the non-prime?
I am working on 'proof of concept' stuff here, so I'd rather not buy the prime just yet - but will if needing a CC in the future would render it useless.
I searched around here and the silicondust forum, came up empty - apologies if this answer exist somewhere!
