0DVB lógicaLa planificación de una nueva configuración de los medios de comunicación de inicio de red

En los próximos meses voy a ser la compra de una nueva propiedad, y para ir con mi nueva casa, Ejecuto DVBLink sobre Windows Server, lo que me permite compartir mi. Ejecuto DVBLink sobre Windows Server, lo que me permite compartir mi, que finalmente hace que el tipo de instalación que siempre han deseado una posibilidad real.

Currently, Tengo 1 HTPC que vive debajo de la sala de estar TV and contains a BlackGold twin freeview-HD tuner. Upstairs in the attic I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 server which contains a RAID card and approx 8Tb of storage. los HTPC is responsible for recording TV, whilst the server contains various media and document libraries. Se ejecuta el servidor 24.7, mientras que la Comisión HTPC sleeps unless we are watching or recording TV. We also have a bedroom TV with built-in freeview which isn’t connected to the media-network.

Whilst this system is fine, and has served me well for a number of years, Me gustaría encontrar la manera de hacer también la siguiente

  • Manage TV recordings from my android phone, oa través de la web.
  • Store the recorded TV on the server automatically, en lugar de en el HTPC.
  • Registre el TV in a way that makes it accessible on other platforms or devices (es decir. no en formato WTV)
  • Hook the bedroom TV into the network, so recorded TV and all my stored media can be watched in the bedroommost likely by putting a second HTPC en el dormitorio.
  • Llevar a cabo TV recording on the server, entonces el HTPC puede desconectarse, en lugar de a la izquierda en modo de espera, and also so that it can be smaller, menor potencia, y más tranquilo.
  • Replace the storage system in my server, which currently uses hardware raid, que aunque rápido, can only be expanded up to 8 unidades, que prueba muy costosa cuando llega el momento de reemplazar todo el conjunto. I also have problems, documented on another article, where the raid array drops drives because the card expects enterprise class drives, y las unidades de escritorio no tienen TLER / CCLT habilitado.

My server already has multiple roles, including web and FTP servers as well as metadata management and automated downloading of various media (e.g. podcasts). It runs windows, and many of the apps I run on it are windows only. I can easily put the TV cartas que tienen en ella, but Media Center isn’t available on Windows Server 2008. Debido a las funciones de servidor que utilizo para, No quiero reemplazar Servidor 2008 R2 with Windows 7 (which does include Media Center) so a solution which provides TV recording without Media Centrer would be ideal. This would also address the problem of recorded files being in WTV format, which isn’t very compatible with other devices or platforms. The second issue I have is that I would like to operate a software-based raid-like storage system which is much more flexible and expandable than hardware-raid. The best solution for this is UnRAID, but sadly this is a standalone solution, and wont run under Windows (without messy things like virtual machines which are too risky for the importance of my data).

The first possibility I have identified for my storage needs is FlexRAID. This is an UnRAID like system which runs on top of Windows. It is still currently in development, and various parts are either alpha or beta, but it appears to offer all the features I want, and is being actively developed and supported. I will be playing around with it in the upcoming weeks.

The solution to the remaining issues is (hopefully) todo dentro 1. DVBLogic de DVBLink Connect Server provides a centralised server recording system which shares TV cards via network to Media Center, Androide, Boxee, DLNA y más dispositivos. It enables pooled-recording for Media Center, watching TV en dispositivos móviles (Windows Phone 7, Androide, IOS), and remote management of recordings via web or mobile. It will run on the server which can contain TV tarjetas, and store recorded TV junto con todos los otros medios. Unsurprisingly it isn’t free, but given the feature list (and maturity) el precio de € 21 es muy razonable!
