Stretch goals & extended subscription

14 likes

$150,000 stretch goal - HDHomeRun DVR add-on for Kodi (XBMC):

The HDHomeRun Live TV add-on for Kodi proved what a great platform Kodi is to work with. Our promise in return for your support - if we hit $150,000 we will make the HDHomeRun DVR work with Kodi as the client for copy-freely recordings.

$250,000 stretch goal - expanded client support:

If we hit $250,000 the additional money will go into staff focused on supporting a wider range of clients. The top clients we have been getting asked about are Roku, iOS, Chromcast, XBox One, and Samsung TVs. Each of these present different challenges and will need the right resources for research and possible implementation.

Extended subscriptions (NEW):

Kickstarter-only offer (by popular request)... support us now with a longer subscription and get each additional year for $25. With the HDHomeRun DVR you can use multiple units - your extended subscription follows your account, not your hardware.

For example, add $100 to your pledge amount over your chosen reward level and get 5 years of everything DVR (applies to reward levels $30 and higher).

      How do you post those extra $25 per year? There is nothing yet on the pledge screen that shows that.

      Well done on reaching the goal, as we haven't seen the software and can only guess from the marketing, it is early to comment.
      My thinking is if you use a QNAP NAS storage as this is supported according to the marketing, then configure the NAS as a Plex sever which can in turn be accessed from many Plex clients such as on PS4, PS3, Roku and many smart TVs.
      This will be my preferred setup

      I thought PLEX was the most OS non dependent client.

      Johnathan,

      To the response about Kodi

      Kodi is the most OS non dependent client out there. Mac,Windows,Raspberry PI,Android,IOS and support for Kodi keeps growing. I currently use SD products at home, for family, as well my work where I support just under 1000 clients simultaneously using Kodi with a full guide and DVR. This is all running on Pi's, windows, Mac, and android where I work. Beautiful!!!!!!

      More supported devices with Kodi than any other.

      Updated my donation in hopes of getting some TWC love. I would very much like to use TWC and homerun prime like I currently am but not with windows media center. Please and thank you.

      I'm also only interested in the solution for protected content. I have TWC and all channels are flagged as 'copy-once'. I pledged $60 in hopes that SD will follow through and develop DVR solutions for protected content. Protected streaming on the Roku and Xbox One would be awesome!! We are counting on you Silicondust, please don't let us down. Thanks in advance.

      @ Jonathan Willoughby
      Agreed. First stretch should be Roku. The market share is larger and by my "last" count there was more requests for Roku over Kodi. Not to mention going from $100k > $250k is highly unrealistic. Almost like they don't want to hit it.

      Xbox One app would be amazing!

      I think the $150k stretch goal should be the Roku development. I believe most people use a heterogeneous mix of services to consume their media (Netflix, Amazon, Xbox, HBO GO, etc) and the benefit of Roku is that with HD Homerun DVR, now we can add Live TV and DVR to that one box without changing inputs! The problem with Kodi is that it is kind of an isolated program. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

      I upped my pledge because I really want to see a Roku app.

      Is there any chance for protected content within Kodi? I'm on TWC and every channel is protected.

    12. Frank A. on

      Simply edit your pledge and add $25 on top of the minimum $30 pledge for each additional year you want.

      So for example, if you already pledged $30, simply add another $25 for a total pledge of $55 for two years. If you pledged for something higher, like a NAS, just keep adding $25 for each additional year you want.

      Hope that helps.

      Is there any chance of making an Amazon Firestick app, it is a nice small form factor with a nice remote and a good price

      So how do we go about extending our subscriptions?

      How about a client that integrates with Emby (MediaBrowser3).

      I'd like to see a PS4 client.
