Nos próximos meses, será a compra de um novo imóvel, e para ir com a minha nova casa, Eu estive lendo lotes em como eu poderia integrar uma nova configuração de home media. Nos últimos meses várias excitantes novas opções tornaram-se disponíveis, que, finalmente, faz o tipo de configuração que eu sempre desejei uma possibilidade real.
Whilst this system is fine, and has served me well for a number of years, I would like to find ways to also do the following
- Manage TV recordings from my android phone, ou através da web.
- Store the recorded TV on the server automatically, em vez de na HTPC.
- Grave o TV in a way that makes it accessible on other platforms or devices (i.. não em formato WTV)
- Hook the bedroom TV into the network, so recorded TV and all my stored media can be watched in the bedroom — most likely by putting a second HTPC into the bedroom.
- Executar TV recording on the server, então o HTPC pode ser desligado, ao invés de esquerda em modo de espera, and also so that it can be smaller, inferior motorizado, e mais silencioso.
- Replace the storage system in my server, which currently uses hardware raid, enquanto que rápido, can only be expanded up to 8 unidades, which proves very costly when it comes time to replace the whole array. I also have problems, documented on another article, where the raid array drops drives because the card expects enterprise class drives, e unidades desktop não tem TLER / CCTL habilitado.
My server already has multiple roles, including web and FTP servers as well as metadata management and automated downloading of various media (por exemplo. podcasts). It runs windows, and many of the apps I run on it are windows only. I can easily put the TV cartões eu tenho nele, but Media Center isn’t available on Windows Server 2008. Due to the server roles I use it for, I don’t want to replace Server 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) all in 1. DVBLogic’s DVBLink Connect Server provides a centralised server recording system which shares TV cards via network to Media Center, Andróide, Boxee, DLNA devices and more. It enables pooled-recording for Media Center, watching TV em dispositivos móveis (Windows Phone 7, Andróide, IOS), and remote management of recordings via web or mobile. It will run on the server which can contain TV cartões, and store recorded TV along with all other media. Unsurprisingly it isn’t free, but given the feature list (and maturity) the price of €21 is very reasonable!
