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.

Does what it says it will Works great on my Galaxy SIII, my one request is some kind of program guide, or a link to my local lineup. A program guide would be wonderful, and recording with compression would make this worth a few extra bucks!

Not official and didn't work. I bought this app thinking it was the official HDHomeRun app. Not only did I waste my money, but the app doesn't work on a nexus 7. All it did was scan and then show nothing. I'd like my money back

Works! I got this working on my Asus tf101, Acer a500, LG Spectrum 2, and Samsung Galaxy S4. HD channels are a little sluggish but I can stream directly to all of my android devices.

Subnet If I had known this app did not work across subnets, I would have never bought it. This app does not allow one to specify the IP of the HomeRun device when the discovery fails.
