Default HD Home Run 2 RF input.

Hi All,

Does anyone know the part # for the old 2 RF input HD Home Run?

I know they don't make it anymore, but I thought I saw it was still available from some sources or available as a remanufactured unit.

I am interested in using it as an alternative to combining my two OTA antenna arrays, since I lose some stations.

Not been able to find much of anything with 2 RF inputs.

I am open for suggestions on any tuners.

Thanks, Bob

The Connect does have two tuners, but it only has one RF input. He wants an older model that had two tuners and two RF input connectors, one for each antenna system.

Personally, I wouldn't use an HDHR because it has Ethernet output. I would prefer to use tuners that have HDMI or component output for the TV or monitor.

The HDHR does have a signal monitor and an Ethernet output would allow MoCA or WiFi if you want to get involved with that; I prefer to keep it simple.

MoCA, which stands for “Multimedia over Coax” delivers the same high-speed network connection you get through an Ethernet cable, but delivers it through your existing coaxial cable (the wire you use to receive cable TV) to any room in your home.

Thanks Rabbit,

For your links to the 2 RF input HDHR

That's exactly what I think I want. Maybe not now though...

I was interested in the HDHR for 3 reasons.
1) 2 RF inputs
2) Really good signal meters (I hear)
3) Ability to distribute signals to other rooms through router instead of running extra COAX.

What I don't like is what you don't like,
1) Ethernet only, no HDMI?
2) Computer dependent
3) Seems like it will be harder to use on my TVs that don't have Ethernet. My New TV (OK not a TV because no tuner) has Ethernet, but that's just one.

Got to find out more about MoCA...

Hope to have this figured out soon, but no real rush, I still have OTA and Cable where I need it.

Once again Rabbit your info is very helpful. I simply don't know what the best solution can be.

Yes, I still want Milwaukee so if combining signals is out then I accept the 2 input solution.
