I'm revisiting the idea of cord cutting and was considering the HD Homerun as an OTA tuner. I seem to remember reading something about one older unit being better than another because the antenna connection was a single external input instead of requiring you to split the antenna signal. None of my searches have rediscovered that info so I was wondering if someone could help with pointers to the info? Or model numbers to look for/avoid?
The old white ones (I have 2 of them) have 2 coax inputs
I guess I remembered incorrectly - I was thinking that there were 2 different versions of the old white ones that had either one or two coax inputs on the rear. and that one of them was highly preferred over the other
I remember there being 2 revisions of the white one (some internal changes). It was said that the latter one was slightly better at tuning due to a chip change. I believe there was no external change.
I used one of the release ones for around 6 years (until this month when Comcast encrypted everything) and the only issue I had was the wall wart died on me. Replacing that was easy. Otherwise the tuner itself has been bulletproof for me. It was one of my most reliable pieces of electronics.
