Is there a way to use the XBMC front end to watch live tv with a guide? I've seen 1 or 2 examples on youtube but they don't tell you how. I have a HDHomerun Prime with a cablecard so wherever there's a computer I can watch all my tv with recording capabilities. However, my living room TV needs some form of front end to get the same access. It can't just get Windows Media Center like my laptops so.. and I was thinking about getting a raspberry pi or those mini USB stick Android PCs to just run XBMC and stream my live cable tv through that.
From what I saw on youtube, I keep reading XBMC-PVR with MediaPortal tv server backend. I dont know what this means. Does this mean my main computer/media server is setup with MediaPortal tv server and then other XBMC devices can access this server? If so, what would I have to do on the frontend (in XBMC) to get the TV guide interface with updates, with recording capabilities?
What is XBMC PVR?
Are there more simpler options than to go through this? I gave up the cablebox at $20/month so I can get a cable card for $2/month and bought the HDHomerun Prime. I can use an xbox360 as a media extender but it runs hot and loadup time is kind of long. And I would need to buy an xbox.
