Been following Tivo thread and decided this better here than there.
I have a WHS2011 server and a separate htpc with Windows 10 and added WMC. Problem is when major updates it kills WMC. Htpc has backup movies and tv series on 2 disks formatted NTFS.
Okay around 4 or 5 years back tried MythTV but never got my avermedia tv tuner to work. Now I have Hauppauge HVR 5500 tuner. Have been thinking again of trying MythTV on it but not sure with my movies etc on NTFS drives. I would also like to still access them from my laptop. Other option would be DVBlink at extra cost if that would be better.
This unit I use to record movies and TV Series from Freeview Satellite. (council keep saying they will chop trees down in reserve one day) and later when can get decent terrestrial signal will switch to recording freeview terrestrial. I then use this to also watch on TV
