As I understand this, if I'm using YTTV I can't put both apps on only one Shield. I think I would like to use 2 Shields if that is possible. My only other choice would be another computer. I don't want to use my main desktop. This leaves me with an older desktop for which I'd have to buy a monitor or a Surface Pro 3 where the touch screen doesn't work.
It seems to me that a second Shield would save space, cost less to run and be easier. That is all an assumption on my part as I'm way new at this. If this is possible, where do I put the dvr client, can I do this easily? Are there any drawbacks to doing it this way?
