Handles ATSC OTA or QAM.  My antenna and cable feeds just happen to enter the house next to my networking gear.  So that's where my HDHR lives. 

Looks very neat, but:

1. Can MythTV control it? I mean, I don't have to control HDHomeRun and 
MythTV separately, right?

2. Will it ignore the broadcast flag?
