A few weeks ago I wrote about SiliconDust making their 3 tuner HDHomeRun Prime available for pre-order, now they have their 6 tuner unit available for real TV addict. The HDHR3-6CC-3X2 uses two separate CableCARDs along with two cable inputs (so it’s essentially two three tuner units in one box) and then you can record six premium channels at once in Windows Media Center or distribute to other Media Center machines around your network.

Pre-orders are being taken from Newegg at $499.99 and should start shipping July 18th
