Got an HD Home Run and LOVE IT!

I picked up an HD Home Run from SiliconDust (HDHR3-US) and love it. I am using it with a large YAGI antenna on the roof of my apartment building and now have 25 stations with perfect signal. The dual tuners (with only one coax connector) let's me record and/or watch two shows at once or watch TV on two different machines. It's linked into my network via a gigabit switch. Channels change fast and the signal is crystal clear. The media center recognized the two tuners with no problem. Setup was quick and I was up and running in <20 minutes (In time to record Fringe).

I have 2 of them so I have the ability to record 4 channels (which is the total number I can receive where I live).

I have one that I have hooked into our cable system. I was thinking of putting an Antenna in the Attic and run a Coax to another HR.

      The SDM R4 is SOLD OUT!
       
       
      The SDM R4 is a bracket that facilitates mounting two additional 2.5″ drives in a HP MicroServer Gen8. There are also mounting holes for fans across the bottom to help cool RAID/SATA cards. The kit includes all the fasteners needed to install.
       
      With optional Stackers you can run four 2.5″ drives on the SDM R4. The SDM R4 will support four 9.5MM 2.5″ drives. If you want to run four drives on the SDM R4, you need to order SSB stacking brackets listed below. One set of SSB per drive pair, four drives will require two SSB kits. Because of the size of the SDM R4, if you are going to boot your server using the internal USB port, you will need to use a USB stick that is shorter than 1″. For more information on mounting instructions look here: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5960-hp-ms-g8-25-drive-bracket-revision-history-new-rev-35-and-rev-4-info/?p=137922

      I was able to watch media center recordings on my Surface RT using a couple of apps.
      On my Surface a downloaded a free app called “PlayTo Receiver.” On my L920, I downloaded a paid (w/ trial) app called “AV Remote”.
      The AV remote app sets up a DLNA connection between the Surface and my HTPC. It seemed to work fine with both 1080i and 720p mpeg2 content. As expected it did not work with protected content or live TV. This will only work across your home network, not the internet.
      Fair warning, my HTPC crashed after I tried this, may be a coincidence, so I wouldn’t experiment while watching TV or when your HTPC is recording.

      Is there anyway to make WMC start in a window? I know there are several switches for WMC and I've found in settings where I can start WMc in normal, minimized, and full screen. The reason I ask is because I'd like to use WMC remotely via Splashtop on the Touchpad. However, if I initiate a Splashtop session and then try to open WMC on the target machine, I get a popup telling me WMC does is not supported by Splashtop because of the full screen. I can minimize it on the target machine and then access it fine via Splashtop.
       
      Btw, this works great. Streaming inside my LAN is pretty good and video reolution looks fine. Funny thing, I'm able to start XBMC in full screen and it works fine so I'm not sure why WMC does not.
