Getting Guide Data back on my Vista WMC looks like more of a PITA than it's worth so I've been considering NextPVR for a while now. It creates .TS files, right? So I can use my Media Streamers (Patriot Box Office, WD Live Plus, Seagate FAT+) like I've been using with my Hauppauge PVR-1212 with TitanTV on a laptop.

OK, stupid Q, but I've got 3 HTPC computers hardwired to a gigabit switch, running MCE with HDHR. I just bought a Roamio OTA. Can I still use MCE to watch shows recorded by the Roamio, or do I need to do either stream or mini's of the Tivo variety? since all are hardwired, I thought i could access with something like pyTivo, but would rather stay with MCE if possible, since family is already trained on that :-)
Now I've been reading that some are moving from Kodi to Emby or JRiver. Or, of course, Tivo. I guess ChannelMaster DVR+ is another option but I don't want to buy new hardware when my HTPC is still great.
No, you need a back end system for the DVR function, i.e. WMC, NextPVR, etc.
I'm going to guess the main HTPC can't run this and using a extender (Linksys DM2100) in another room right? I'm hesitant on messing with the main HTPC right now since it's strictly for TV the most I did to it 2 days ago was switch out the single 120GB drive to a 120GB SSD and added a 2 TB recording drive.
