Addon |Name=HDHomeRun PVR |provider-name=zcsizmadia |ID=pvr.hdhomerun |latest-version=1.0.9 |extension point=xbmc.pvrclient |provides=PVR |Summary=HDHomeRun PVR |Description=HDHomeRun PVR addon is a unofficial native PVR client made by the Kodi community for SiliconDust HDHomeRun network attached television tuner series.

This unofficial PVR C/C++ binary addon for HDHomeRun is an open source code community project and is not to be confused with SiliconDust's official HDHomeRun addon, which unlike the unofficial addon talked about here is Python Script based and not true native PVR client addon, meaning that the official addon does not use Kodi's own native PVR frontend interface.

Note that the unofficial native PVR client does not yet provide DVR recoding options or have the possibility to pause Live TV. Currently it only provides the possibility to watch live television inside Kodi as streamed from your networked HDHomeRun box.
