So, this is on FIOS, so it may be of only limited usefulness, but I
have an HDHomeRun Prime and it works great.  I can tune any channel
other than the premiums (HBO, Showtime, etc).  The mid-tier channels
are all fine (Discovery, History, etc).

Drives me nuts that I can't even watch HBO on free preview weekends.
And they wonder why people find alternative sources of their favorite
programs - no copy-once bit set on those...
