WHS Tv watch and record question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have my computers networked to a dual tv tuner. I watch tv via my xbox 360 and record to my homeserver. I have two questions, 1. is there any way to add media center to whs so i do not have to have my pc7 and my server on to watch and record tv? 2. I sometimes experience NETWORK ISSUE in a little blue box top right of screen when watching on my xbox 360, would this be lag time, possible slow server? maybe network tuner? xbox360?  anyone?

    1. No. Media Center is not available for Windows Home Server. Microsoft's concept is for a central location to store content, not to generate content.
    2. If you're watching live TV using e.g. an HDHomeRun device and your XBox 360 as an extender, network tuners in general work poorly with extenders. This isn't a Windows Home Server issue, I'm afraid.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
