There are thousands of Windows Home Server users out there who are eager to transform WHS from a backup, storage and streaming device into a full Media Server, with TV recording and playback facilities. HDHomeRun is a small, standalone box with twin DVB-T (Freeview in UK) tuners and an ethernet port. It can be positioned next to your aerial socket, and take two separate digital TV inputs (using standard coaxial aerial cables). It then outputs those signals directly on to your network using the ethernet port, where it can be picked up by any computer on the network using a range of different media applications – including Windows Home Server running Sage TV’s Media Center, or in the future, any other media package that may ship with, or support Windows Home Server. So, that means you can get live TV on any PC in the house, without having to pack in multiple tuners in your home server.
