    SiliconDust, the manufacturer of the of the HDHomeRun Prime will be providing new three-tuner Primes for a limited time after it was decided to discontinue the development of the six-tuner Prime 6. It was previously reported by SiliconDust that the three-tuner Prime has not been available new due to some of the hardware components not being available to produce the device. At that time, it was decided to not develop new hardware for the three-tuner Prime and have a gap in time in which no Prime device would be available from SiliconDust. The six-tuner Prime 6 was discontinued after some development setbacks and after the Federal Communications Commission announced there is no longer a mandate that requires cable television companies to provide CableCARDs. The new three-tuner Prime is currently in production according the SiliconDust, and since it is the same as the original Prime, it has already gone through the required costly certification process. I wrote a short blog post titled "One Last Chance to Buy a New HDHomeRun Prime" about this with a description of the Prime here.
