Watch live television streamed directly to the television screens in your home. Tune N’ View provides the first-of-its-kind, set-top box solution for Android by bringing together the Silicondust HDHomeRun and Google TV. Finally, you can drop the set-top box from your content provider but still watch your favorite shows [1,2,3] without having to pay monthly equipment rental fees.
Tune N’ View was designed from the outset to offer a seamless, television-watching experience and is optimized for Google TV. You control it with your Google TV remote just like any other set top box or television. All of the channel navigation features that you are accustomed to such as channel up/down and previous channel are available.
Want to know what is on? Tune N' View features both mini and full programing guides that are powered by Gracenote . Use the mini guide to review the programs currently airing on each station but without leaving the television viewing screen. To view a complete listing of current and future programs, launch the full guide. Both guides are fully interactive allowing you to change the channel directly from within them.
Tune N’ View supports home networks having multiple HDHomeRun devices. The devices may be different models or use different digital input sources (Antenna, Clear-QAM, M-Card). Devices are organized automatically into groups with easy-to-read names, so no longer are there device ids to remember. Better yet, you can switch between device groups all without leaving your viewing screen.
Tune N' View is available exclusively for Google TV. OS versions 3.1-3.2 are currently supported. Devices must meet additional hardware requirements as outlined below.
Tune N’ View is compatible with Google TV devices that include the standard, television codecs (video: MPEG-2 or MPEG-4, audio: AC-3). If your Google TV meets the codec requirements but is not yet supported, let us know. The following devices are supported:
•Sony Internet TV: NSX-24GT1, 32GT1, 40GT1, 46GT1
•Sony Internet Player: NSZ-GT1, GS7, GS8
•Vizio: Co-Star (VAP430)
•Netgear: NeoTV Prime (GTV100)
Note: Vizio Co-Star users will need a television or A/V receiver that supports the receipt and decoding of AC-3 audio passed through over HDMI (i.e. AC-3 passthrough). Not all televisions are compatible.
Tune N’ View requires the Silicondust HDHomerun. Most models are supported. The HDHR-US (firmware=20120405) and HDHR3-CC (firmware=20120405) have been fully tested and verified. If your model is not listed or if you are experiencing problems, you can contact us using our developer email address.
•HDHR: US, EU
•HDHR3: US, CA, CC, DT, EU, 4DC
•TECH: US, EU
•TECH3: US, EU
A high-speed, local area network is required. Both wired and wireless networks are supported. For high definition content, a wired connection is strongly recommended and probably required. For standard definition, a wired connection provides the best performance, but a wireless connection should work as well.
