Maybe I misread his post but I believe the HDHomerun Prime is a 
cable-only tuner and he wants to use OTA (as in a VHF/UHF antenna).

There are also, AFAIK, also issues with making this tuner work with an 
Open Source app too (DRM issues).

What he/we neeed is a new HDHomerun with a newer generation tuner (old 
tuners (both versions) are apparently not as performant as newer 
generations of tuners) and there are no indication that work on this has 
even started yet...

Have a nice day,
