As with the Tivo, I would like to DVR content, mainly FTA, via DVB-S satellite. No UHF reception
However, unlike the Tivo, I/we also would like to watch NZ online TV streaming services - TVNZ, TV3, etc and Sky Go. Probably netflix, lightbox in the near future.
Other than a windows-based HTPC, is there an alternative product that directly supports on-line streaming ? Not really interested in "casting", or jumping thru hoops just to get content on the TV.
I have ChromeCast, RaspBerryPi+XMBC, Xbox 360, and a recently acquired WD Playon TV box, but none seem to support NZ TV streams ;-(
One box to watch/record them all
TV is un-smart.
If HTPC is the only way to go, then probably looking at a Gigabyte Brix, or similar, with USB DVB-S/S2 tuner, Win7x64 with Media Centre
