    Not for recording but only to change channels...?

    Bartenders..... Anyway, thanks for the information. I have to think this out and maybe I'm going to end up finding someone to write some .NET code...

    Not for recording but only to change channels...?

    the STB's are direct TV... and given the group of users who would use this > a simple interface is desired. If something could be built around some GUIDE software + EventGhost + Caching what channel each box was last tuned by Event Ghost, that would be a simple soluiton... too bad I can only...

    Not for recording but only to change channels...?

    The TV's are all prewired into a coax/cable distribution system. So, like 3 tv's are connected to a direct tv box. I want to be able to identify which tuner is tuned to which channel, and be able to select to change a specific tuner to another channel - from a PC, preferably with an on -screen...

    Not for recording but only to change channels...?

    Here is my silly question... And thanks for listening! I have a need to use a tool like media portal to just control 8 set top boxes and change their channels. No other real integration necessary. They are Direct TV boxes, and the user should be able to tell which tuner/box was tuned to...

    HDTV STB capture options?

    Hey - Just a thoug here on guide data. here in the states is a service called "schedules direct". It was set up by some guys who use the same Replay TV pvr that I'm coming from. There is also a local "run at home" service called Wirns that allows you to edit your guide. It's more designed for...

    HDTV STB capture options?

    Hmmmmm. Mee too, I think. I just need to spend some time looking at the capabilities of this software VS win7 Media center... Can I run it on Windows Home Server 2011?

    Hey guys! New guy here...

    What I'm talking about is more "client awareness" - client is aware of all "servers" and can see what's scheduled/recorded on any server on the network. Does that make sense?

    HDTV STB capture options?

    Not trying to thread-nap here... but what about the AverMedia card C027? The one also known as MTVHDDVRR? Windows 7 media center recognizes it, but I want to figure out if Media Portal can - with more than one in a PC!

    Hey guys! New guy here...

    Hmm. If a server, on a network, is not aware of it's brothers... well, it should be! Or rather the client should. Wirns - a third party tool written for Replay TV users, provides a HOST of capabilites as well.. Perhaps the MediaPortal team ought to get with the folks who know Replay best to...

    Hey guys! New guy here...

    Interesting. But I'd hate to build something like that only to have it stop due to some changes... So using their boxes seems to be the only solution. And I think the way my house is wired I need to keep them where they are - due to the LNB switches and so on... so each has to be a client and...

    Hey guys! New guy here...

    Thanks for the link. I have / use DISH NETWORK satellite, and so will likely use something like the Hauppauge HD-PVR or HD Colossus to capture the feed. So there would be a host/client PC for each of the 4 tuners in the house. I like the 'dedicated server' concept of the mediaportal but DISH...

    Hey guys! New guy here...

    I've been enjoying the benefits and power of REPLAY TV for the past 6 years or so now, longer if you count the Showstopper from Panasonic. I'm looking ahead. Even though we have a work around for the fact that the original service providers are turning off the guide service (most of us have...
