About Us

Company Profile

Silicondust USA, Inc. was founded in 2007 and launched the HDHomeRun® .
The first network-attached digital TV tuner, allowing customers in the US and Canada to 
receive over the air broadcast and unencrypted digital cable TV on their PCs. Subsequent 
product launches expanded the product line to offer the same functionality to customers across 
Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.



The next innovation from Silicondust was the HDHomeRun® PRIME™, a CableLabs™-certified digital cable tuner supporting CableCARD™ conditional access, allowing customers to receive subscription digital cable TV on their home PCs. Development efforts have added the ability to access these channels via DLNA devices such as smart TVs and game consoles. Our Android app will allow for viewing of premium digital cable content throughout the home on tablets and smart phones.
