Just started using Channels. I'm really impressed I have a history of Window's media center, Myth TV, and gave up as it was always a pain to maintain. This was a breeze to setup
We currently have a Synology DS-415+, which has a quad core atom, and 2gb ram. I believe there is no transcoding capability. It is also used for a few security cameras.
I have tried this with a dual tuner connect to try this out and all appears fine , but I've ordered the new quattro version which hopefully arrives soon.
We currently have 4 TVs, which all have a mixture of devices:
- 42" 1080p plasma, which has an amazon fire, and a 4th gen apple TV, though eventually this will move to a 4k TV.
- 32" 1080p LCD, which has an amazon fire stick, 3rd gen apple tv
- 32" 1080p Samsung Smart LCD, which has a 2nd or 3rd gen apple tv
- 55" 4k Samsung Smart LCD.
I'm thinking about trying to simply the setup, and make it consistent, which would probably mean a move to Apple TV 4th gens or 4k (Well for TV 1 and 4), or adding some more firesticks.
Which is a better client for Channels? Firestick or Apple TV 4th Gen/4k?
Do they place different demands on the NAS?
Does the version of HDHomerun make any impact?
Am I likely to run into issues with my NAS?
