New to the forum and Channels Plus. I have several Nvidia Shields and an unRAID server as well as multiple HTPCs. I have a SD HDHR Prime and a HDHR Quatro as well as a Ceton InfiniTV6. I just joined the Kickstarter campaign for their new ATSC 3.0 Quatro tuner so hopefully that should be coming in the new few months. I have a 2nd HDHR Prime that is not currently being used, but I could set it up with the cablecard from the Ceton if needed. I have a primary HTPC with Windows 7 and WMC that uses the Quatro tuners and the Ceton for recording OTA and FIOS channels in WMC. I have several 1st generation Intel NUCs with Windows 7 and WMC that use the HDHR Prime for watching live TV on FIOS. I have three 1st generation Shields and one latest generation Shield for streaming content online from Netflix, Amazon, etc., and also content stored on my unRAID server using Plex. I also have a Windows 10 HTPC with JRiver Media Center that I use primarily for 4k video and music playback.
Based on my available hardware, what would be the best way to set this up for use as a DVR and live TV? I would like to set it up so I can use the Shields for live TV in place of the Intel NUCs at the various remote TVs throughout the house. Since I'm on FIOS, all of the Fox network channels are DRM channels. Will I be able to view these channels live? I know I won't be able to record them, but I can still use WMC for that.
Can I configure the unRAID server for use as the DVR server? How about simply designating it as the storage location for the DVR? I could also set up the Windows 10 HTPC or even the primary Win 7 HTPC as the DVR server if that would work better. I don't need more than 1-2 TB of storage as I don't keep a lot of unwatched recordings on the drive. I delete them after viewing to make sure there's enough space for future recordings.
