If you've been pondering the best way to get unencrypted QAM into your Home Theater PC, I highly recommend the SiliconDust HDHomeRun tuner. It connects via the ethernet so it won't take up any space inside your computer or USB ports, can tune unencrypted QAM (digital/SD & HD) channels as well as OTA HD channels and it's a dual tuner to boot. It normally sells for $170, but NewEgg has a great deal available.
Here's how to get the SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual Digital HDTV Tuner for $140
- Go to NewEgg.com & you'll see the HDHR for $168.99
- Log in to your NewEgg Account (you have to be logged in to apply the promo code)
- Add the HDHomeRun to your NewEgg shopping cart and view your shopping cart
- Near the bottom of the shopping cart page you'll see a "Apply Promo Code" box - enter this code: EMCAJBCAF
- The price will be reduced by $30 and your price is now $138.99 with free shipping!
- NOTE: Looks like this deal will last 24 hours so if you want one, don't wait.
