I'm not an admin, but I can confidently tell you you'll not be able to watch TV without cable or satellite.  The way it works, is you have a cable box and run that to your Xbox One.  Then you run your Xbox one to your TV.  Basically your cable transfers through you cable box > xbox one > your TV.  If you don't have cable and a cable box hooked up you won't be able to watch TV.

If you have a tv antenna, and get Over the air signals for local channels, a user found a way to make it work. I haven't tested it myself, but plan to buy one soon!

I have the same box the other gentleman had (HomeWrox) but I did not find any support for it in their provider listing.  So, YES I was able to SEE live tv being passed through and SURE I could use a remote to change channels but Kinect could not send IR commands to it via voice since it was not a supported provider.... I asked him how he did it... No reply of course thus far..

So, credit to omegaweaponzero on reddit.

Try setting the manufacturer to Mediasonic, then manually put in your model number. HW150PVR

They have said it works with voice then.
