    PVR Help/Advice

    Afternoon All...and what a lovely day it is!!!

    I need some help/advice with a PVR setup im trying to achieve ive got a 2TB HP Media Server sitting in my house really just serving videos/music etc, i have a USB TV Card sitting there doing nothing so i thought ill attach that to it,

    Now does anybody know of any software that will record TV (Freeview) but using a web browser as an interface? Just the HP Server has no display output etc so its gotta be web based.

    Ta Muchly! and enjoy the sunshine at last!!!

    might be easier to use media centre and output it to an xbox 360

    I use some software at home called SnapStream Beyond TV. I don't access it via a web interface, but I think it has that capability.

    No problem. Only trouble I've found with it is I've never got the online programme guide to work. I suspect it only has US TV channels. But that's not a problem, as I just use the manual setting option, very much like programming an old VCR (date, time, channel, auto repeat). Also, I haven't got whatever hardware would be needed to get the software to change channels on the Freeview box, but this can be programmed separately on the box itself.
