-<WRAP important 100%>HDHomeRun beta software lets customers try out software before it has been released, and give feedback on it.

-  * Only live over the air TV is supported at present. ​The HDHomeRun PRIME is not currently officially ​supported ​in this release, but we are working to add support, and it likely will work with most cable providers outside of Comcast, as long as the channels are not DRM protected.+  * The HDHomeRun PRIME is not supported.
  
-  * DVR support has not yet been added.+  * DVR playback is available on Roku devices. However, DVR scheduling and recording must be done on another device, such as an iOS mobile device, Android device, or PC
  
   * To hear audio, you need a TV, AV receiver, or soundbar that can decode Dolby Digital or AC3 audio over HDMI. Most modern TVs can do this, though we’ve noticed a few Samsung TVs cannot. All Roku televisions should be able to play audio without any trouble.   * To hear audio, you need a TV, AV receiver, or soundbar that can decode Dolby Digital or AC3 audio over HDMI.
