    Good find, it looks a useful bit of software.

    Cheers,

    Have you tried Mythtv. It is very good. I have been running Mythtv for a while now and not looked back. It has good hardware support and is Very stable.
    You can run it in two configurations.
    Frontend+Backend on the same system.
    Backend and Frontend(s) on different systems.

    I have a dual tuner in a headless backend with a 500GB Drive and thats a lot of stored video.
    You can record or watch 2 channels of Live TV at the same time. Support PIP.You can even connect it to X10 and have it dim your lights.

    In the latest software you can watch / record more than one channel per tuner if it is on the same Multiplex. but this is still under developement.

    Check it out.

    I did think of using a video web server something along the lines of this http://www.digidave.co.uk/product_in...e2a68e5687939e
    Price is not bad and fits into the non pc idea I had.
    Will look into the Mythtv tonight.

    I have one of these video servers on my home LAN. Video is coming from a camera in a bird box.

    It works ok and supports multiple users at once but I've only tested that in a very limited way (two people at once) so don't know how well it would work fo your. It has some bandwidth control options.

    If you have a lot of users (>4) and they all want different channels at once you will need a much more expensive solution. You may also need to think about your network bandwidth.
