I pipe my hdhomerun through a raspberry pi running osmc as my dvr. The 
hdhomerun box itself has open-source drivers, if that helps you out.

If I connect to the pi over the osmc web interface I can use a RESTful 
connection over vlc to view live or saved videos. The format is<id1>?ticket=<id2>

I don't know what you're trying to accomplish, but the easiest (and fun) 
thing might be to put a pi on the network, use the hdhomerun driver for 
osmc, and let it do the heavy lifting for you.
