Adding a remote Tablo or HDHomerun tuner as a Source

We no longer can access OTA networks after we moved. A friend in another town is willing to take my Tablo 4 tuner unit and connect to his antenna and give me access. I am assuming we would set up a VPN with specific access to the port the Tablo is on. Would like it to function as if it were on our home network.

Or I suppose I could send him a CDVR setup on an RPI4 and connect the Tablo / HDHR that way then access remotely but not sure how to create a 2nd instance of the Channels app in out Firesticks.

Has anyone tried this? Need a little direction.

Interesting, thanks Rice. Just googled Tailscales sounds like thats perfect. So would this also allow me to get full access to the CDVR UI for settings and configuration changes? I am assuming so.

Sure does. Also it is already part of channels you just have to turn it on and register the first time
