This is awesome. Thanks for posting this. It would be awesome if we can get a how-to guide of integrating something like MCEBuddy and Comskip to have commericial detection and EDL file generation.

I tried MCEBuddy, but it was very slow, and the EDL files were off. Also, the MCEBuddy EDL files were coded so that they disappear completely. You can't go back and see the skipped parts if you need/want to. There's a way to make the EDL files differently, but I never found the time to figure out how to do it. Somebody should go over to the MCEBuddy people and suggest that change.

If I ever get around to it, I may try it again, but for now, if you do it, let me know how it worked...

Great guide. I would like to add that the Ouya ($100) is better than the PI as a low cost player. But I use 2 Hauppauge HD-PVR 1212 as my capture devices to get the video from DirecTV, so my liveTV is h.264. Not sure how the Ouya handles mpeg2.

WMC as PVR Backend | 4 RaspberryPI Clients (RaspBMC) | 1 Ouya client
Tuners: 4 Hauppauge HD-PVRs (DirecTV) | 2 ATSC (OTA)

How many of those Hauppauage 1212's can you use on one system? Are you limited to just two, or can you do more? And how do you change channels on the DirecTV box if you have more than one?

Hey guys, I've encountered an issue with my setup and could really use your help with something. I've posted a detailed request here:

If you have time, please review that request, do the test, and post your results. It'll take about 8 minutes of your time, and will help me improve the guide.

Thanks again!
