Did this video help you?

Adez Zaeem: Leave the guy alone, this guy was very efficient in this tutorial for us.... Great video man.

Aceguy2001: Hi can you record from plugins such as DexterTV

homes24: you remind me of the guy from office space.

WoobieWookie: Can we have an update (we're up o KODI now) - I will be attempting to set this up in Win7 with a cablecard tuner. Crossing fingers...

Mike Sheedy: FYI. Hauppauge is a place in NY.  It is pronounced "Hop-awg." ;)

Bret Price: Is that your parent's entertainment center?

FedDavidics: Just get a Amazon Fire TV. Instal XBMC and you got more channels, esp. international, then Directv, TWC, etc. Or just buy a XBMC setup.

Tech_Geek97: If you use digital cable try a Ceton InfiniTV

Joseph Walker: I purchased a Roku 3 before I saw your video. How would I used it in your system?

piratesmvp: Excellent video! I'm considering adding DVR functionality to my XBMC system, so this was very helpful.

Jermaine Pulley: I use a centon infinitv 4 it uses a digital cablecard and gives me 4 tuners. They also have one with 6 tuners in one device. That's the way to go. I did this so I wouldn't have to spend money on renting cable boxes every month. Now I don't spend anything on boxes.

Bill Stine: Excellent! I'm considering going OTA and setting up something similar to what you described and had pretty well settled on NextPVR and XBMC on the clients. I was considering using Raspberry Pi running Raspbian/Raspbmc for the clients. Didn't know about XIOS DS Media Play. Can you comment on Raspberry vs XIOS? Worth building a special server or just buy a capable used PC?

sander201: why is it necessary to install xbmcbuntu instead of just ubuntu for windows?

christopherve7alb: The revo has more codec support just because it is running a full Linux OS beneath XBMC, the pivos does have very good support as well (I have tested it with mkv, avi, mp4 (h264), mpeg2 - both SDTV and HDTV). The PVR settings will be different for mthtv as NextPVR and MythTV are two different server applications. You will actually use a different PVR addon for mythTV (I believe XBMC has an official MythTV addon)

christopherve7alb: Yes but generally it will be four tuners of the same type. I need separate tuners for FTA, OTA and my subscription satellite.

bryancmcguire: ok my honestly which box plays all types of video sd/hd/x264/mp4 best the pivios or the acer revo? And are the settings for the pvr plugin for next pvr same for mythtv? Meaning the port you entered long with ip address?

Michael Golden: You know that you can get a 4 tuner card, right?

Steve Cleland: Was having problems setting up the PVR function for various addons. Your video gave me the info to get it up and running in minutes. Best part was no SQL stuff to deal with. Thanks for your time and sharing of information.

7Oh7: Great tutorial. Its nice that you showed how to set up the channels. I feel you missed the EPG set up and how to interface the remote XBMC to obtain the channels from the server. All in all your spot on and you couldn't have made it any easier. Today I purchased the Win TV-HVR 950Q for about $90.00 with tax. I watch OTA channels (I dont believe in cable since i get my premium content else ware) for all the breaking news and XBMC for everything else. Thanks for your time in making this Video !!

christopherve7alb: The main advantage is that all TVs are using a central source, so that all recorded TV shows are accessible from each TV. It also means all TVs in your house can receive all TV channels, this is especially usefull for me as I have FTA, OTA and subscription satellite, which would mean three boxes at each TV if I didn't have this networked system.
