What is Tuner Sharing?


  • Tuner Sharing makes connections to your HDHomeRun go through the DVR server
  • Multiple clients watching the same channel can share a single tuner slot on your HDHomeRun

Enabling Tuner Sharing

Tuner sharing is disabled by default, so each client device connects directly to your HDHomeRun. Enable sharing under Settings > Playback > Advanced > Tuner Sharing

Server-side control

To force all your clients to automatically use Tuner Sharing, use the DVR's Server Side Settings feature.

On the Clients tab, under Client Settings, add entries for:

  • Playback > Advanced > Tuner Sharing
  • Server Side Only > Inherit Source Priority
