HDHomeRun PRIME 6CC now available for preorder for $499.99

With a release date of 07/18/11, you can now preorder the SiliconDust HDHomeRun PRIME 6CC for $499.99. This new six tuner CableCARD tuner would compliment any HTPC system that currently uses cable and Windows Media Center.

Six tuners may seem like overkill, but for those of you with multiple PCs in the house, six may be the right number!

Six Tuners? Really?

Say it is Monday night and you are watching football on the desktop (tuner 1) and your wife is watching Castle (tuner 2) on the laptop. You kids are watching Disney (tuner 3) over Xbox as an extender to the HTPC that is recording Muscle Car and Star Gate Universe (tuners 4 and 5). See how the tuners can add up quickly?
