We're big fans of the HDHomeRun family of products, mainly because it's a great idea that executes well and doesn't discriminate against your platform of choice, which includes support for both Windows 10 (and Mobile) and Xbox One. You can use these boxes in so many ways it's really quite remarkable.
The makers of the HDHomeRun, SiliconDust, has announced a pair of new boxes in the Connect lineup: Duo and Quatro. The clue as to the difference between them is the last part of the name.
The Connect Duo seems to be a refresh of the existing connect, giving you two tuners in a now, sleek looking black enclosure. As ever, it isn't a North America only product, though it does support U.S. and Canada OTA TV channels, also working in Europe, Australia, and Brazil. Find out more about it on the SiliconDust website.
The Connect Quatro is the most interesting of the new products, namely because of the four tuners it now gives you. That means watching or recording four channels at once on different devices if you wish, which gives you a lot more headroom in particular if you're a DVR user.
Otherwise, it looks to be the same as the Duo, supporting OTA TV in the same locations, including HD channels where offered.
In the U.S., the HDHomeRun Connect Duo and Quatro will be exclusive to Best Buy until the end of 2017 and will be in stores it's expected in the coming days. Outside of the U.S., there's no sign just yet, but it's important to remember that you'll always need to buy your country specific model, not import, because of differing standards.
