DVR ON PC, PLAYBACK ON SHIELD

Post by itzabo » Sun Jun 16, 2019 7:11 am

Is it possible to use my PC to record and my shields to playback?
I have a HD Prime with 3 tuners and a cable card.
All devices can easily watch all channels (DRM included)

TIA!!

Yes, with SiliconDust Software you just need the DVR subscription, or there are other 3rd party software. I assume your PC is Windows 10 since you say you can view DRM, which currently only works with SD software on Windows 10 And Android TV. DRM cannot be recorded at this time, but you can view it live on your Nvidia Shield.

Download the Software on your computer, and download the APP on Nvidia Shield. There are further instructions if you need them in the Downloads and Instructions forum at the top of the page you posted this in.

The reason I don't like having my Windows10 computer be my DVR drive is that the computer can never go to sleep. Depending on your computer, this can be a real energy hog. Your Shield with a portable drive would probably be more energy efficient if it is on all the time. That is why I chose an Android box for my storage.

That is where the new HDHomeRun SERVIO is the perfect solution - 2TB and lower energy consumption that running a PC or Android box.

And if you ever need more space you can add a second HDHomeRun SERVIO.
