I have a few questions about tuner cards for LinuxMCE...
Which is the best TV Tuner card (internal or external device) for LinuxMCE? I am considering HDHomeRun. Is there a better alternative?
I like HDHomeRun because it has got two ATSC tuners. The bad is that there is no NTSC tuner so it cannot tune regular NTSC (correct?) .
Since it has two tuners, two Media Directors can watch two different live channels at the same time, am I right?
At the same time, I am also wondering if 100Mbps bandwidth is sufficient to stream two HD channels in the network.
I am wiring/configuring the whole Media network with its own Gigabit switch to optimize network bandwidth. Will plugging in HDHomeRun into this switch bring down the whole network to 100Mbps? Router is going to be DLink DGS-2208 which has got 128MB buffer.
BTW, does TV Tuner cards come with FM tuner built in? Or should I get FM tuners separate?
