HDHomeRun Prime 6

Nice! Looks like only requires 1 cablecard so should be an easy switch from current Prime.

 

Questions, though:

1). What will the price be?

2). Why only a 100 Mbs Ethernet?

From what I've read, it'll be $199. Not sure on the ethernet connection though.

My guess is it's because the average HD broadcast stream is 15-20Mbps so a gb nic is unnecessary and would cut into their bottom line.

Wouldn’t 6 x 20 Mbs = 120 Mbs? Thus maxing out the 100 Mbs NIC.

Theoretically yes, but I'd imagine they have people there smarter than you or I that know something we don't.  They're not going to sell a product that can't handle what it was designed to do.  My 2c.

I really hope they release the 6-tuner version in the near future, but I've been keeping an eye on this thread and it doesn't look encouraging.

I just nabbed a brand new 3-tuner prime on ebay and it works great with Emby.  It'll do the trick for now, at least.
