Stream live TV from your HDHomeRun device to your phone or tablet. (Unprotected, copy freely channels only)

This application will allow you to stream live TV to your android phone or tablet. It can be streamed to your device in 1 of 2 ways.

1. Directly from the hdhomerun to your device. This requires a strong network connection to your device (wireless N recommended) and a powerful enough device to decode 1080i video.

2. Through the HdhomerunStreamServer. This uses VLC to transcode the video to a lower bandwidth.


This application can also help you diagnose signal issues. You can view the signal strength of any channel and even graph the signal strength over time. Up to two tuners can be graphed at the same time.

For direct to device streaming you'll need a video player that can decode MPEG2 on your android device.
Recommended video player:

MX Player users: You must setup MX Player to show the quit button in the menu and use that to leave MX Player otherwise MX Player will hang the next time you view a channel.

For streaming through HdhomerunStreamServer you'll need a video player that can decode H.264 video. Most devices have one built in but if it doesn't you can use this one:

Note: This app can only play unprotected, copy freely channels.

Phenomenal app This is a Phenomenal app and must have for user of HD Home run Prime or other. Lot's of customizing options with good GUI. To stream HD content 5G frequency is a must. Don't even attempt with 2.4. AC connection on both ends will feel seamless.

works okay but not always. On Galaxy Tab 3 have issues where play will pixelate, stutters, and audio drops. Exiting player and then back it will work again. Adjusting MX player settings did help some but not 100%. Simple interface not many features or settings.

Wonderful Great app. Works very well just really really needs an EPG to go with it. I use this with hdhomerun tuners and mx player. DVB-T and free view antenna. No problems on note 8,tab 10 or HTC phone.
