  • What homebrew PVR do you use?

    I know about MythTV, pcHDTV, Media Portal, and Freevo, but I'd just like to check my options out there. What do you use and what are your results?

    Freevo : simple, efficient, lightweight compared to MythTV but has less options.
    MythTV: powerfull, heavy but nothing is missing in it.

    It depends on which machine you set them.

            I had a MythTV box, but just upgraded to a satellite tuner with 100hr DVR built in. (No extra fee or anything). The thing is, MythTV recordings were unreliable because the satellite receivers we had and still have are only controllable via IR. So a IR transmitter next to the receiver is not very reliable. This means you record the times you want but the wrong channel!

            It had nothing to do with MythTV, but control of your cable/satellite box is key to a happy DVR. Other than that, I like'd its interface, but overall the all in one unit is much nicer. Although I cant customize it very much. Oh well.
