    I got this installed and running on WHS 2011 with a HDhomerun tuner. The hardest part was getting the guide information. I used schedules direct for the guide data and had to do a little mapping for the clear QAM channels (Had to change the channel #s locally so they would match with SD then I set SD to map by channel number.) I was able to get the client plug-in working in the sense that it came up but it was all in German and It seemed to be broken anyway. I didn't try to hard on this part because I really didn't need it.

      I have the exact same setup as you do my friend. WHS 2011, HD HomeRun tuner Dual and I am about to install it running TV4home. I was hoping you could give me some advice or words of wisdom before I begin?

    Yeah it needs some polishing for me to re install it, and I don’t think any work has been done on it since (over a year). Would be cool if they finished it or polished it to work with TV guide information and just make the install a bit easier (ALSO BE GREAT IF SOMEONE COULD MAKE IT SO CAN WATCH LIVE TV OFF WHS2011)
