I know, I own both Hdhomerun Prime (card only) and Hdhomerun 4K (2 ATSC 1.0 and 2 ATSC 3.0 tuners). There’s already a file server hidden in the closet, so paying an annual $ 35 fee for a DVR on a LAN seems like an easy choice. The files are easily accessible from any media player, tablet or phone in my apartment and I can edit them if I want.
The only downside is that 4K broadcasts use AC4 audio. VLC, Cody, Plex all lack support for this, but should it be fixed soon?
