Ty! (both marks!) I have managed to get vlc working, though not in the manner I had hoped..
http://192.168.254.3:5004/auto/v7.1?transcode=mobile -- this will tune to channel 7.1. (I'll be trying your method momentarily) It also finally clicked in my noggin that plex will work with the hdhomerun, and now has the ability to stream live. Since I already have freenas set up with plex, I'm using that as my dvr/streamer interface for now. I'll definitely be looking into a pi setup too. (I have an orange pi laying around that i'm not doing anything with) As for passing a url that will work with vlc to the player object instead, no joy getting that to work so far.
