Beware I already paid for codecs and now they remove sound and demand another $10 to get it back. RIP OFF! ------ SOLUTION; I replaced this app with the HDHRFLING app on my PC. Streams hdhomerun live TV to any browser. Free trial and ONE TIME fee for license. Works better than this app ever did. HD works fine.
Awful developer Don't be fooled! I paid for this app awhile ago, and now there's a new release that disables sounds unless you pay another $10 in-app purchase to re-enable playback. Basically charging an extra $10 for features I already paid for once!
Works with Mi Box and Hdhomerun extend however.. Using the free hardware codec with no bandwidth restrictions does the trick. However there is a very annoying glitch were turners are not released making the homerun to look busy and render it useless till a reset it done on the homerun box. InstaTV has the right codecs for this box with no pixelation and the right de-interlacing. this situation occurs with the built-in LiveTV app on this native AndroidTV box. I hope a fix its on their way.
I have cut the cord and use HDHomeRun devices to watch over-the-air. I have a M8 AndroidTV box with this installed. The picture quality is stunning, but that is about the extent of praises I give the app. It has a cumbersome interface and problems with audio. It frequently plays the Second Audio Program instead of the primary audio stream. The only way to correct the audio issue is to close the app and restart it; quite annoying. I have other systems for recording content off my HDHomeRun devices but this is the only stable platform for playing true HD content live without hiccups, albeit the aforementioned SAP audio issue.
Handy for old unsupported legacy Dual on android & Fire tv I have old hdhomerun dual tuners which work great with windows media center & no plan to replace. This app allows me to watch live tv on our android & Fire devices with no other server side transcoder system like other solutions. (Most of which require the newer tuner models) so without media center extender app to stream from my windows media center this is next best option. As far as cons, it's bit clunky/finicky to setup & use. Requiring in app purchase to work kinda shady.
This is a rip-off!!! Do NOT Buy THIS APP (PRO). The version must be purchased via the mobile devices WITHOUT refund capability in Google Play. The Pro version (11 Oct 2016) has NO sound and the channel it played in HD (720) with no sound on the free version DOES NOT work with Pro ($9.99) version. Same network, same device, same bandwidth within 3 mins of upgrading. Do Not PURCHASE this app. Don't download the free version; is is fraud!!
