I have a Lenovo Q180 lying around and was thinking about turning it into a HTPC. I would use a HDHomerun dual for TV interface (I am 1 mile LOS from Sutro Tower and get 60 digital channels OTA from my 4 bay Wingard). Which software would you recommend from among:

NextPVR – DVR for Windows
MediaPortal – DVR for Windows
Windows Media Center

Any others on your short list?

SFO OTA 1.2mi LOS to Sutro Tower, 60 digital stations OTA with a paper clip for a antenna. Now use a Wingard 4-bay and get closer to 70. But lost Rovi about 2/10 and my Sony DVR is dying from lack of time and TVGOS data.

I too have an under-powered Atom box (Acer Revo) and found Win8 MCE works pretty good on it.

This would have better feedback in the HTPC forum rather than the Great Deals found forum

OK, I am confused. Under Home Theater Computers there are 3 fora:
Great Deals
Mac
Linux

Precisely which forum were you referring to as HTPC???

Thanks. Dave

If you scroll further down, below those 3 forums, you will find you are actually in the main HTPC forum, and the posts are a bit below the forums you listed above.

http://www.avsforum.com/f/26/home-theater-computers scroll way down, you will find the posts :-)
