I got my tuner card

In the next phase of my mediaPC project, I bought a tuner card today – I selected a WinTV-dualHD TV Tuner, because of the following reasons:

  • the price was reasonable – about 100$ from PBTech
  • It is supported by Plex for live-tv.  See this page for supported hardware
  • good features – allows recording two channels at once or watching one while recording another.    supposedly allows Picture In Picture as well but I wont be using their windows app, will need to see how well it works from within kodi and/or plex.


more to come once I get my media box.
