Accessing HDHomeRun Prime DLNA Stream via HTTP

If you have an HDHomeRun Prime network TV tuner with updated firmware (and don't forget your CableCard), you can access your (non-encrypted) digital cable channels using DLNA. Many DLNA browsers, including some TVs and tablet/phone apps, can automatically find the channel listing so you can skip using a cable box--or watch something live while your DVR records a few other shows.

Insert the IP of your HDHomeRun and replace XX with the channel number.


would load channel 50.
