There are many choices out there including SMB (slow), NFS (a hassle since if you are Windows user then there is no native NFS support in Windows without going to the trouble of installing Windows Network Services for Unix or some third party product, and http.

I started with SMB but found it slow. Then moved to http via MyiHome but found that a bit flaky also. I now use Swisscenter which I had been using on my Pinnacle SC1000. It's free and now has PCH support and works really well. It apparently has resume support (though not quite working yet) which the PCH does not have.

If you are daring you can also using gbpvr but from reading the docs on how to do that, I might stay away from it. But it looks like the most fully functioned since it allows you to control your gbpvr installation on the PC for not only watching but also recording video shows.

I've had the odd play with gbpvr as the server - but mostly just use me popcorn for taking to someones house with a HD tv to show them how hd looks compared to what they have (I'm doing freeview's job for them!!!)

But once it's in use I'll be using the popcorn with gbpvr  - it will be replacing a Hauppauge MediaMVP

gbpvr looks like the most functional but the trickiest to setup since it needs you to hack the PCH. I am not game yet to do that - the hardware seems a bit fragile or sensitive to firmware changes.

You dont hack the PCH to run GB-PVR. Basically the setup consists of sharing a directory on your PC, copying the client application files into that directory, then mapping to that share from PCH. When you view that share on the PCH and select the HTML file, you'll be shown a link to start GB-PVR. That maybe a little complex, but its not that bad. Hopefully we can make it a little easier in future.

There is no changing firmware or editing files that live on the PCH or anything like that.

I have replaced the MVP with PCH and GBPVR and am very pleased with the result.

I guess I was just looking at the installation instructions which said, if done incorrectly it could damage your PCH. Or is that just a all embracing CYA statement?  Looked like most of the config work was on the PC but you had to run telnet session to the PCH?

It wont damage anything. It was just Martins CYA statement, and not really a concern of his any more. He recently indicated we was going to change those comments since it scares some people away.

Yeah the config is done on the PC. The default startup scripts require you to click the telnet link once, then the GB-PVR link. You dont need to telnet into the PCH though. Thats just there for a convenience for debugging if needed.
