Which card to buy?

I am at a crossroads. I have been using the Hauppauge PCI cards for years. One of my older HVR2255 has Kicked the bucket after 6 + yrs of use & abuse. My newer WinTV Quad was returned to Happauge for replacement under warranty. (Lasted 6 months) I don't like being a beta tester for the linux drivers & want to get away from Win 10. Are the SiliconDust HD Homeruns reliable? I read all the horror stories of the power supplies. ( one of reasons I stayed with a pci card) I prefer to use straight debian rather than ubuntu based distro for daily driver. Don't have a dedicated media server at this point. Can I have confidence in making the switch to Homeruns? I only need OTA access, having given up on cableboxes & uuirts. One thing I liked about the Hauppauge cards is not needing to be linked to net all the time other than for epg updates. They are cheaper too. Which is your preference?
