Power Pack 3 and TV Archiving RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am going to be getting getting a WHS machine and would like to use the TV Archiving feature of PP3 to play TV shows on my Zune HD.  When WHS uses the TV archiving feature, is the encoding done on my Media Center PC then transfered to my WHS or is the file transfered first, then encoded on my WHS?

    Just trying to figure out what processor I need for my WHS.  If the processing is done on my Media Center PC, then I can get a slower processor on the WHS.

  • I believe the encoding is done on the client. Many servers have too little processing power to be able to efficiently encode video content.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
