Any word on a WHS add in for tivo?
TiVo Publisher for Windows Home Server
I used to have a WHS and I loved it. It was a first generation unit and it recently died on my. I thought about upgrading to the HP EX495, but the whole line is discontinued. So now I'm considering this unit:
It is pretty pricy though.
What is WHS?
sorry i ment WHS 2011 (windows home server)
I usedmto use the WHS add-in, but the functionality was limited. Install pytivo on your server - best of both worlds...
Nothing wrong with pytivo, but my personal choice for video from our WHS is Streambaby (http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=416858). I have TiVoPublisher installed, but only use it for audio files.
You should check out the combination of pytivo and vidmgr running on a NAS or windows box. The interface is Great and there are none of the troubles with streaming as the video is ON the tivo when you watch it. Properly configured, its real time so no waiting and full HD capable....along with the other pytivo capabilities.
HP MediaSmart Expander for TiVo is an Add-In for WHS v1. It can be downloaded from http://www.hp.com/united-states/consumer/everyday-computing/mediasmartserver/us/en/tivo.html
We still have thr original WHS and tried TiVo Publisher for a while but soon switched to pyTivo which works well. I don't know if anyone has it running on WHS 2011 yet.
