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.
