There are two branches of InstaTV. The one available on AppStore is a transcoding solution that requires a Windows PC and an ATSC/ClearQAM tuner card. No external player is required.
Another branch that is still in development (InstaTV 2.0) is a direct streaming solution that does not require a Windows PC. It streams directly from a HDHomeRun device to iPad/iPhone. It's currently in testing and should be available sometime this summer. It does not require any external player anymore.
We have just released InstaTV 2.0 beta 5 today on TestFlight.
For those who do not have a TestFlight tester account and want to access the app as well, InstaTV is now also available as QuickTV-20120620 on a Cydia repo: http://apt.appbeta.org
QuickTV is based on the exact same source code as InstaTV except it will be updated more frequently.
So just to be clear: On Cydia it's called QuickTV and on AppStore it's called InstaTV
