Just wondering if anyone is running pyTivo on a Windows Home Media Server. I'd love to get one of these servers and just leave it on 24/7 instead of one of my computers that is currently running pyTivo.
Thanks rdian. I see that the HP Mediasmart server running WHS has a 2.0 GHZ Celeron with 2GB of RAM. Would this be enough for pyTivo to run smoothly?
I'm a little late to answer this user, but for posterity's sake it works just fine on a 2nd gen HP Mediasmart (specs listed above). It runs about a 2-5 minute lag transcoding a 42 minute show to 720P@20Mb, which isn't bad all things considered (ie, takes about 44-47 minutes). I generally give it a minute or two to get rolling then start watching. By the time I include breaks, replays, and fridge runs, I rarely see the 'please wait' screen.
If i'm smart I'll push a bunch of shows over an hour or a day before I want to watch them, but I'm rarely accused of being too smart.
