I posted this in "Networking, Media Servers & Content Streamers" a few days ago but got 0 replies.
I am looking at having a home built in the next few months. I am trying to think ahead of time what I want to do TV wise. I am looking into using Windows Media Center and Extenders. One of the reasons I am looking at doing this (besides cost of boxes/DVRs to cable cards) is that we already have a couple of Xbox 360s in the house which I see support this. I also already have a server with 7 TB of storage available running WHS v1 but am willing to change it over to an operating system that will better suite this need. As far as tuners I have figured I only need 4 (2 dual tuner cards).
My question to people here is:
People using this setup, what Windows OS have you found to work best? <-- this is not to start an OS war, just with there already being a couple of 360s in the house along with 8 PCs, I am trying to keep it simple.
Other than the 360, any other devices out there that do the same thing?
Suggestions for alternatives to what I am looking at doing?
