  1. Use HDHomeRun Config (GUI) to choose the physical channel.

    NOTE: Ensure the viewer is not running for the next commands.

  2. Set the filter: Open a cmd prompt and run:

    "C:\Program Files\Silicondust\HDHomeRun\hdhomerun_config" <device id> set /tuner0/filter 0x0000-0x1FFF

    (replace “<device id>” with the 8-digit device ID of the HDHomeRun)

  3. Save the stream to disk:
    "C:\Program Files\Silicondust\HDHomeRun\hdhomerun_config" <device id> save /tuner0 sample.ts
  4. Wait 30 seconds and stop the stream by pressing Ctrl-C.
