    I'm confused on how to set up this system.

    I have 2 PCs that I will be using. Computer 1 is media storage only. Computer 2 is used to play the media from computer 1 and record and store and watch live TV.

    What install would I use on Computer 1 and Computer 2?



    Thanks in advance.

    Computer 1 = Server (and Client if you like)
    Computer 2 = Client only

    Recording and storage takes place on Computer 1 as the server part does also the recording..

    Thanks for the reply.

    My TV card is in Computer 2 and my TV connection is at this computer's location. Can this work?

    Can I install both server and client on computer 2 and add a network drive as a media folder?
