I got a new network tv tuner (HDHomeRun Duo) yesterday. This behaves nicely straight off with mythtv and I hope may also improve reliability as the sat tuner card (or its software) does crash occasionally.

I’ve also removed the USB dongle used for live tv on mum’s PC and (while I’ll probably leave the coax in place), don’t think I need an aerial cable in the study now. That and I’ve modified the mythtv settings:

I’ve got 1 of the 2 dvb-T/T2 (on the HDHomeRun) and 1 of the 3 dvb-S/S2 (on the TBS card) available tuner ports reserved for recording only with recording priority given to the dvb-T one. The other ports are available for both live viewing and recording with suitable priorities set.

I put kodi on my Android phone and that is working for live tv via its mythtv plugin.

Oh well, it was something to play with on yet another rainy day...
