TotalMedia 3.5 is bundled with Silicondust HDHomeRun

TotalMedia 3.5 Bundled with Silicondust HDHomeRun

Now you can buy Windows based media center software ArcSoft TotalMediaâ„¢ 3.5 together with a Network Attached – Dual Digital Tuner HDHomeRun. The ArcSoft TotalMediaâ„¢ 3.5 offers the same bunch of features as any other media center software based on Linux, Windows or Mac OS. Many of them support HDHomeRun. For example, MythTV. So, I don’t see any reason to spend 80 bucks for that except ArcSoft will give a good discount on HDHomeRun.
