An ATSC network attached device from Silicondust.

The device works well under Linux.

Overview/Features

This interesting embedded device runs Ubicom's own ipOS RTOS. It is capable of supporting both 8-VSB (ATSC) and 64/256-QAM (SCTE 07 Digital Cable) sources. In addition, the IP3023/ipOS combination is capable of providing hardware PID filtering.

The HDHR works well under Linux using MythTV or VLC media player.
