Tune N' View

Tune N' View


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 [4]. 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.



Requirements
Google TV
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.

Excellent App! I have it working on 3 devices; a Sony GS7, and two NetGear Neo Primes (BTW purchased @ Target closeout <50 bucks). Two are wireless and the other needs a powerline adapter (Belkin A/v500) since it is too far from router.... all work great, a little slow changing channels but if you are not a channel surfer its fine.

Fantastic Application - Much Appreciated I could not believe this existed. I use a HDHomerun Prime with cable card, and when used with Tune N' View I can rent a single cable card from Verizon, yet still be able to watch cable on any TV in the house (that has Google TV). The quality of the picture and sound is excellent, and the built-in guide really makes this application a complete replacement for a cable box. My only request would be to have the application launch directly into TV mode instead of launching to the main menu (and then requiring to launch TV). Maybe this could be a setting?
