This is a niche case but I am sure someone has tried this

 

1. I have a win7 32bit core2 duo box running HDHomeRun_US PRIME with cable card from.rcn

 

1.5 ts140 16gb server 2012 r2 essentials

 

2. All gigabit of course

 

3. Why run a whole box? Cant I vm the win 7 machine?

 

4 so best way to do the above and will the network tuner work?

 

 

5. Use DISK2vhd to clone the running win7???

 

6. Which vm should I run on ts140/r2?

 

7. Am I forgetting something? This should work right?

well, hdhr is nice in that it can easily network into the vm, but how protected is your content? if your wmc expects HDCP to see it in full beauty there may be an issue watching it from your pc. as far as extenders go I can't comment on that aspect.

Well everything works great now:

 

IOS is using channels for live TV

Android hdhoketun for live

Recordings ->mpeg4 mkv (so you strip protection) with mcebuddy

 

Really it's just for live TV and watching sports on the go away from home using Plex.(server wmc)

 

So will my VHD idea work? Which is best virtual client to run on server 2012 r2 essentials??
