Advice Required - PVR Setup

Postby johnnyspice » Mon Jul 20, 2015 6:15 pm

Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if I could trouble you for some advice relating to my PVR setup.

I currently use a number of Asus Chromeboxes around the house to stream movies and tv shows from my Synology NAS.

For live tv, I use a satellite TV unit which utilises CCCam to descramble. This is limited to the lounge TV though.

My question is, how best could I share the live tv with the other Chromeboxes running kodi?

I have tried running both TVHeadedend and DVBLink on my Synology NAS (plus sat tuner), however I've recently realised the NAS is not really powerful enough to handle the descrambling needed. I was able to watch FTA TV on each of my Kodi boxes though.

Another option I've through about was to buy one of those dreamboxes which allow DLNA streaming and setting things up that way together with the DVBLink Dreambox product.

How are other people doing this kind of thing? My aim would be to use Kodi for everything, with all of the backend hardware in my server cabinet. I don;t really want to have to route satellite cable to each of my TVs in order to accomplish this.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards
