    Any Cord Cutters / HDHomeRun users here?

    Any Cord Cutters / HDHomeRun users here?

    I've moved to TvHeadend from Myth. Much easier setup, and lower amounts of messing around.

    What drive configuration & FS for a home server using Proxmox and BTRFS (hopefully)

    Urm.. get ecc if you can afford it. (not listed above in your posts) Mirrored pools make a lot of sense if you have the intention of adding drives.
