Quick and Easy MediaBox
« on: December 02, 2017, 07:58:05 PM »
Just felt like sharing installed this on a couple of devices and works well as a PVR, just a small Linux install with Kodi,

I tried OpenELEC and LibreELEC, but the PC install of OpenELEC seemed to be broken and never installed the OS only made partitions, LibreELEC which I assume is just a fork seems to work so far.

That's odd - I've never had an issue with OpenELEC (not that "it works on my machine" is what you want to hear  :) )

My guess would be that there was some manner of failure in the copy of OpenELEC to your install media.

Is there a popular digital tuner card that works well for such things these days?  I think I had a "happague" back in the days of analog TV, but these days you'd need a card with multiple digital tuners to be able to properly take the place of a tivo device.

Also needs to cost less than a tivo. :)
