For help with using the app see Using the app


  • Android:
    • Latest version: 20190801
    • APK for sideloading - This link can be used for a “manual” install on an Android-based device. This is normally not needed, and most users will want to use the Google Play store link, or the Amazon app store link.



  • In the past the Mac installer contained a configuration utility that was similar to the Windows version (signal monitoring, scanning for legacy tuners, etc), but that utility is no longer maintained. It will still work for some situations and can be extracted from an older version of the installer:
    1. Download and install the old version of the HDHomeRun viewer app
    2. Right-click on the app icon and select “Show package contents”
    3. Find “hdhomerun_config_gui.app” and drag it to a different folder, such as your main Applications folder
    4. Re-install the latest HDHomeRun viewer app here

The Windows installer contains multiple parts. It includes the Setup application, firmware updates for HDHomeRun hardware, and DVR storage software. It will attempt to sideload the Windows 10 app on Windows 10, or install the older version of the viewer app for Windows 7/8.

When the HDHomeRun Setup application is open, it will look for all HDHomeRun hardware on the network and attempt to update them using the firmware available at the time the installer was downloaded. When new firmware is available, just download and reinstall the Windows installer to update those files.

The DVR software will be turned off by default and can be turned on by opening up the HDHomeRun Setup application, clicking on the “DVR” tab, and using “Use this PC for recordings”. DVR requires a subscription to work. DVR software should not be installed on a computer that is connected wirelessly or turns on or off frequently. Updating the DVR software can be done by simply downloading the new version of the Windows installer and installing it on top of the existing version. No uninstallation of the old version is necessary.

The DVR tab in the HDHomeRun Setup application also contains the NAS install tool, for installing the DVR software to a NAS from the PC. In that set up the PC is only needed for the installation, and can be turned off afterwards, as the NAS will handle everything else. Updating your NAS's HDHomeRun DVR software is done the same way as on the PC: simply download the new version of the Windows installer, install it, then re-run the NAS install tool on top of the existing version. No uninstallation of the old version is necessary.

The HDHomeRun view app for Windows 7 and Windows 8 is very limited and no longer updated. It does not have access to DVR features, but should still work for live TV. Windows 7/8 users can also use the HDHomeRun add-on for Kodi to access DVR features.

The Mac installer contains multiple parts. When the installer is ran, it will update firmware for HDHomeRun hardware on the local network. It will give the option to install the Mac viewing application, and the Mac DVR storage software.

When the Mac installer is ran, it will attempt to locate all HDHomeRun hardware on the network and update them using the firmware available at the time the installer was downloaded. When new firmware is available, just download and reinstall the Mac installer to update those files.

The installer will give the user a choice to install the HDHomeRun viewing application, the DVR software, or both. DVR software should not be installed on a computer that is connected wirelessly or turns on or off frequently. Updating the DVR software can be done by simply downloading the new version and installing it on top of the existing version. No uninstallation of the old version is necessary.

Latest version: NA- same as stable at the moment


See the beta changelog for details.

All of the beta installers will be marked as updated, even if only one part has a change. For example, if one HDHomeRun model has a new beta firmware, the entire Windows and Mac installers will be updated, even though other parts might not have a beta update (DVR, app, etc). See installer notes for additional details.


Latest version: 20190715beta1
