What is nextPVR?

NextPVR is a free Personal Video Recorder (PVR) and Media Centre application for Microsoft Windows. At its heart lies the Electronic Programme Guide from where you can watch (and pause) live TV and schedule your favourite shows for later viewing.

Relax with a DVD or play back your music, videos and photos stored on your PC or on other devices across your home network.

With support for multiple clients (including thin client devices such as the Popcorn hour) you can distribute your media experience around the home. Away from home you can use the web interface to schedule and stream media using a PC or a suitable mobile device.

Blows TVheadend out of the water because the interface wasn't designed by a mentally handicapped child in the 70s. NPVR could have blown up my server and I still would have rated it higher than TVHE.

Should be Called IntervalPVR instead! Used this to record for quite a while then it Started Putting and actually saving files with a much longer length than the program time. Had To use Handbrake in order to fix it so it was the right length. Then started to record in intervals and it worked right! I'm almost certain that Windows 7 And Other new Versions of Windows STILL NEED A DVB FIX Like Windows XP, Because this recorded the wrong Length!!!
