I'm not sure I ever had a "MCE remote", but if I did it would be in the same drawer with my other unused remotes next to my new TiVo remote. Universal remote and never going back.

Most of what you want to do, streaming, is done poorly on a PC/HTPC. Your XboxOne can do most of it and I think they are working on a DVR solution for the OTA tuner add-on.
