SiliconDust sent out an announcement in PDF form updating their customers on the current progress of their CableCARD equipped HDHomeRun Prime tuners. The release states that 6-tuner per-orders have almost all been shipped out already and the rest will be shipped by the end of the week. They also reaffirmed that the 3-tuner device will indeed begin shipping from NewEgg on Monday, August 22. Fulfillment of 3-tuner pre-orders should be complete by the end of the month.
