I’m a totally newbie to home media/automation so am looking for pointers on setting up a central hub for backups/audio/tv and video :)
- SkyHD+ Box
- BTVision Box
- 2 x Samsung TVs
- Windows Home Server on a self
build box, will be buying a dedicated WHS box when the Vail release hits
- Ethernet 100Mb & Wireless
- 2 x PCs
- 2 x Macs
- Virgin 20Mb cable broadband.
I’m pretty sure I can get the backups and the audio sorted out but is there any way to use WHS as the central hub for TV? i.e. save any recordings from the Sky and BTVision boxes to the server then play those on any TV or computer in the house.
If transferring recordings isn’t possible can I get a tuner card that will take SkyHD and BT Freeview signals to record direct on WHS.
I have about £1000 for the project, is this a realistic amount.
Thanks for any help
