I found the following script (I guess I at some time got it from
silicon dust) and it works perfect!
I put the ip address in hard and the tuning parameters you can get

hdhomerun_config <ip-address> scan <tuner>

I have been looking at it on and of for years, but never really
serious. There was no urgency. I never thought it would be so simple.
Just substituting id with ip! :-)



usage () {
    echo "$0 <channel> <program> [output]"
    echo "ENV variables: id, tuner"
    exit 1

if test -z "$channel"; then usage; fi
if test -z "$program"; then usage; fi

echo command: $0 $*

hdhomerun_config $id set /tuner${tuner}/channel $channel
hdhomerun_config $id set /tuner${tuner}/program $program

if test "$output" = "-"; then
    hdhomerun_config $id save /tuner${tuner} - | mplayer -fs -
    echo Saving $channel-$program to $output
    hdhomerun_config $id save /tuner${tuner} ${output}

exit 0
