How To Configure Media Portal TV Server
I have been Windows Media Centre user for many years. Since Microsoft have made it clear that they are abandoning WMC, I started looking into alternatives. At this point I use Plex as the main HTPC interface which works really well. Unfortunately, Plex doesn't have any PVR capabilities so it can't replace WMC on its own. For all PVR related stuff I currently use Media Portal. It works pretty well as well, except for the initial TV Server setup, which looks pretty unintuitive.
Below is how I set up my Media Portal TV Server. I'm setting this up for UK FreeView and FreeSat tuners, but very similar process would apply to other regions. FreeView is Digital Terrestrial; FreeSat is Digital Satellite.
