    Hi,

    I have just got an Nvidia Shield TV and am looking for the equivalent of a HDHomeRun or VBox that supports Satellite TV (FreeSat) along with Terrestrial TV that has an app so I can watch it on the Shield TV.

    I am looking because I don't have a satellite feed into the room where the TV is located but I do have an aerial in another room I could setup the box.

    I would also rather watch everything inside Android TV and the one small remote rather than jumping in and out and switching remotes.

    Cheers,
    M.

    I've been looking into this also for the last few months. There's not much at the moment.

    I know I've read nvidia are planning tuners for the shield via usb and at the start of the year they said it'd be a "few months".

    The other option is maybe an SAT>IP Tuner to Kodi or SAT>IP to rasberry pi running TVheadend and then this Tvheadend Live Channel (BETA) - Android Apps on Google Play to view the channels (PVR coming soon from what I've read)

    That or maybe plex will add additional tuner support to their DVR offering that they are working on.

    I think I'll sit tight for a few months and see how those things progress first.

    Vbox XTi-3340 has two FTA DVB-S2 and two DVB-T2 tuners.

    Store

    There is a Android app and a pvr add on for Kodi.
