       hdhomerun_config - A utility used for maintaining and controlling a Silicon Dust HDHomeRun


       hdhomerun_config <id> command [options]


       The  HDHomeRun  is  a  networked digital television receiver with two tuners.  It can tune
       QAM64, QAM128, QAM256, or 8VSB television streams.

       It is most useful in the  United  States  where  QAM  is  very  commonly  used  for  cable
       transmission and 8VSB (ATSC) for Over The Air television transmission.

       This  utility can be used to control the HDHomeRun, update it, and query information about

       The only requirement for the utility is that the HDHomeRun be hooked up on the same subnet
       as the computer peforming the actions.  The HDHomeRun will receive an address via DHCP, so
       if static addressing is in use on the network instead, the device will not function.


       1)  Multiple tuners.  For those nights that several primetime shows are  on  at  the  same
       time, you won't need to worry.

       2)   QAM  & OTA support.  Both tuners can be set as either QAM or OTA.  This way if only a
       few channels are available by one variety, but you would still like those  channels,  each
       tuner can be used for the different connections.

       3)   Networked.   The  HDHomeRun  can  be accessed by any computer on the local network by
       using VLC, MythTV, or SageTV.

       4)  Upgradable.  Silicon Dust regularly  releases  firmware  updates  for  the  HDHomeRun.
       These  can  be used to add support for upcoming recording standards, changing frequencies,
       or stability.
