Re: best choise linux or windows

It sounds to me like you have your answer based on your own testing on your own hardware. Personally I run the TVM server on Windows but run the clients on Android based boxes (FireTV Boxes and an NVidia Shield). Really though I would imagine that performance would have more to do with what hardware...

Re: New HTCP setup

As far as I can see now: live TV does keep the machine awake, playing recorded TV doesn't. Strange, because I think both are played through the same TV Mosaic PVR add on in Kodi. Well at least we are halfway there. I would have thought that the constant use of the network card with the prior settin...

Re: New HTCP setup

So what happens if you leave both the top two checked but NOT the Magic Packets?

Re: New HTCP setup

For the wake up issue, have you looked into "Wake on lan"? I think this should do what you want. https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/wake-on-lan-windows/ Yes, I have looked into that. Let's say the machine goes to sleep after 20 minutes of idle time. What happens then is the following: Machine is awake I...

Re: New HTCP setup

First I want to apologize, I was quite tired when I made that last post and now realize I repeated myself a bit from earlier posts. For some reason if TV Mosaic starts a recording the machine is woken up and stays awake for the duration of that recording. However, if I want to use the tuners to watc...

Re: New HTCP setup

Thank you for getting back to that. A dedicated Windows machine running as a server for all my media, TV Mosaic and my tuners comes more and more to mind. @Maverickz: What do you see as the main advantage of the Fire TV box over an Android TV box? And what type of tuners do you use? I have had my F...

Re: Remove commercials

If I get the remove commercials to work...? You can get commercial removal to somewhat work, but don't ever expect it to be 100%, 100% of the time. You will have to live with it sometimes leaving in some commercials (usually ads for other shows on the network) and occasionally cutting out some smal...

Re: New HTCP setup

Actually my media server is running Windows Server 2012 R2. I use Win Server because I also use it for DHCP, Email Server, Web Server, and a central file Server for PC backups.

Re: Best low power client?

There should be a way to sideload the TVM app on the TV as long as it is an actual Android TV or even one of the new Fire TV's. I think it should work on specific Samsung TV with Android, Sony, and Toshiba TV's as well as some of the cheaper Android TV brands. I don't think it will work on LG's (las...
