Let's say that I decide to connect my HDHomeRun directly to a USB Ethernet adapter on my DVR server. It would not have any Internet access (so
http://ipv4-api.hdhomerun.com/discover wouldn't be able to see it), and it would not be visible to devices on my LAN.
As long as I use Tuner Sharing, would the Apple TV Channels app and other Channels apps still work correctly? If I have a DVR and use Tuner Sharing, do they still rely on the HDHR being visible on
ipv4-api.hdhomerun.com or over the LAN? And does the DVR server itself rely on
(My rationale: Given how many capabilities the HDHomeRun exposes over HTTP with
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *, I'd like to try to isolate it from nefarious web pages that may try to mess with it or use it for fingerprinting. But I don't want to spend the effort if this is known to not work.)
