You can't plug a USB drive in a Firestick and use HDHomerun DVR service for $3 a month, ($35 a year).
There are currently 4 devices that can do that , a Shield, MiBox, AirTV Player, and Stream+.
You can buy a supported nas. You can run a 24/7 pc. Only those 4 devices support their DVR engine with USB DRIVE, and, only the Shield and Stream+ use their "highly recommended" USB 3.0 Drive.
If you already own a Stream+, ( I own 3), it is far more capable a DVR using HDHomerun, when I can take the drive out and back it up, transfer to my nas, can't do that with Live Channel recordings.
To add A Streaming service to that is the icing in the cake. It's replacing my SlingTV service at the same cost. And I can record all of the Streaming Channels as well, along with my OTA.
For me, my family, this was such an easy sell after we saw the demo channels.
