This VDR plugin adds support for the HDHomeRun networked ATSC/QAM tuner.
It can be used in conjunction with the ATSC EPG plugin to receive schedule

The plugin will automatically detect HDHomeRun devices, no configuration 
necessary. A list of detected devices can be seen in the plugin's setup menu.
More information about the HDHomeRun can be found on the manufacturer's

  vdr-1.7.13-atsc-tuning-0.1.0.diff : Same as above, to be use if the NA-EIT
                                      patch has been (or will be) applied.
