support for libhdhomerun
The dvb drivers seem to miss things that libhdhomerun does not. Support for this would be excellent!

The actual libhdhomerun would do two things:
1. It would mean official support through HDHomeRun, using the driver they provide instead of third party, which would hopefully mean better support for what happens with it.
2. It would give us information that the DVB doesn't seem to provide (such as whether a service is encrypted or not.
This would not be any easy task as the libhdhomerun is not a dvb driver, so I'm not talking a direct conversion either.

- Status changed from New to Rejected
Broadly speaking I agree with Fabian, I would rather see improvements in the DVB API wrapper than have to include specific support in TVH. Not least because there is no one likely to do the work (at least not in the current dev team), but also because its better to centralise this effort.
I'm going to reject this one as I just don't think its ever likely to happen. Of course should a homerun user step forward and offer up a solution then we would re-consider whether to integrate it.
