The TV4Home project is a set of different components for installing and using the Media Portal TV Server  on Windows Home Server and your client computers.

To successfully install TV4Home it is recommended that you follow the step-by-step installation guidelines:

Installation on Windows Home Server v1:

  1. Install the TV4Home Add-In (WHSv1)
  2. Install TV Server and Web-Interface (WHSv1)
  3. Configure TV Server / Scan for channels

Installation on Windows Home Server 2011 (Codename “Vail”):

  1. Install the TV4Home Add-In (WHS “Vail”)
  2. Install TV Server and Web-Interface (WHS “Vail”)
  3. Configure TV Server / Scan for channels

Supported TV cards:

While in theory every TV card supported by MediaPortal TV Server (see here) should work, there may be some incompatibilities between the cards and Windows Home Server.

Especially Windows Home Server v1 might have some problems that WHS2011 doesn't have, since it is more optimized for media scenarios.

We therefore put together a list of cards that are known to work with WHS or WHS "Vail": List of supported TV cards

We also plan to develop (currently pre Alpha state) a more complex application which lets you watch live tv or recordings, schedule tv shows and maybe some other features.
