Podcast: The Media Center Show #245 – Networked Tuners

This week Garry Whittiker and Jason Coombs join me to discuss networked tuners using DVBLink, Jason has all his tuners pooled in a Windows Home Server and then is using DVBLink to distribute the tuners around the network. Its an interesting solution and takes us closer to having a centralised TV tuner system. Jason is also streaming TV via DLNA to devices like PS3 and over the internet.

I have a round up of the weeks news including Extender speculation and updates for Windows 7 Media Center
