Ted from SiliconDust just issued an email with an update on the HDHomeRun – PRIME CableCARD Tuner. They also gave an update on pricing, vendor selection and mention they will be at CES. You can bet that Andrew and I will be there to be the first to look at and try out this long awaited tuner!


The email from SiliconDust states:

Quick status update…

We are at CableLabs® for the final review, with release to production in 2 weeks. Pre-order and release dates will be announced shortly following release to production.

On the availability side we are working with major retail partners to stock the HDHomeRun PRIME and accept pre-orders. The price has been confirmed at $249.

Black Friday – We have been working with the good people at Newegg for a great Black Friday deal on the original HDHomeRun-Dual ATSC/clear QAM tuner. The sale runs Friday November 26 continuing through to Cyber Monday.

CES – everything is in place for a great CES 2011 in Las Vegas January 6-9 – We will be on the floor in the South Hall 3, upper level, booth 31948.

Release to production is the key milestone for us and we have been working hard to make it happen. We will keep you posted.

Happy holidays,

Ted H – CEO

Silicondust Inc. USA


We look forward to seeing the HDHomeRun PRIME at CES 2011.

  1. Seems like this has been rumored to be release for almost 2 years now. Getting tired of the wait and the hype since it has amounted to nothing. When are we going to see this? No seriously when? Rev 2047 Soon? Really-really-super-secret-soon? No-seriously-it-will-be-very-very-soon soon?

    • Last year at CES 2010 I got to play with the breadboard version and saw it working. We are now two weeks away from CES 2011 and have no idea when we will see hardware from SD. I will corner them at the show and MAKE them give us a hard release date. Ugh.
