I used the link local solution too. To get to my HDHR's web page, I have a function:

function hdhr() {
     HDHRIP=$(ssh yourbackendhostname "hdhomerun_config discover"|grep 169.254|cut -d' ' -f6)
     echo -e "\nTo connect to the HDHR, use: http://localhost:8001\n"
     ssh -L 8001:${HDHRIP}:80 yourbackendhostname

Typing: hdhr will print a link that can be opened.
