    Phillip, how does this work? Do you put a TV tuner in your WHS? The documentation isn’t very clear.

  2. Hi Jim W,

    You don’t need to put a TV tuner into your WHS if you don’t want to. You can still use the other media functions.

  3. I have read several things regarding SageTV, yet I still do not understand it. Does the add in allow me to install a tuner in my home server and allow it to record TV from it? If it does, that is what I am looking for. This would eliminate the need of an extra machine on my network that is only recording TV. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

    I run SageTV at home, under Windows XP. The setup is the following:

    2 Hauppauge 150 TV Tuners connected to cable TV (I could have used a dual tuner card instead)

    SageTV Service

    3 Computers running SageTV Client Software

    3 Televisions connected to Hauppauge MediaMVP (serves as a Media Center extender and has a RJ-45 network jack and composite TV connections

    I can watch TV on any of the above devices. I also have 1 placeshifter license on a laptop. That allows me to view TV and recordings when I am on the road, like the Slingbox.

    So, the answer to your question is that likely you would put the TV cards in the Home Server. You can watch/record as many channels simultaneously as you have TV tuners.

  5. Thanks for your comments Ryan Weathers and Raymond Rooks. More information is available at http://forums.sagetv.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26939
