If you just need the Server this would be a better deal.

    Can you put Windows 10 straight on this or does it have to have server os? Been holding out for a decent deal to add another microserver, currently sporting a n40L with 5 x 4tb and ssd as windows primary and 16gb ecc. Anyone have ideas?

    I'm trying to justify getting this, but can't quite do it just for a NAS.

    Is there anything stopping me putting a TV Tuner card into this and using it to record digital TV all day?
    It looks like i can (there's one slot), but there appears to be no audio and lousy video.
    I'd play anything on the main PC anyway - it's really just to record given i can have it on all day and it won't interfere with whatever i'm doing on the main PC.

    I've used a TV tuner card on the PC before and it was a pain - used to interfere with everything else i was doing.
    I'm just not too sure how hard this thing would be to set up & how hard it would be to access to set what i want to record - can i do this without requiring a dedicated monitor on the thing?

    Also, given i can set up 1+1 protection, i'm thinking of putting standard disks in instead of the more expensive reds. Should i be shot for thinking this?

    Finally can i run Win7 on this? This suggests i can't, but it's an old article.

    Any help appreciated.

      this video is a great tutorial on g8. You can install win7 instead of hyper V and use ahci instead of raid, and ignore the rest configuration. then you get a normal PC you familiar with. I installed win2012 so I can't comment on win 7 as 2012 has the best drivers.
      You can remote to your sever using iLO if you don't have a monitor. to use the advanced feature of iLO, you probably need an advanced license key. this is the lowest price found on eBay.

      or try a usb tv tuner

      @steamtrain:

      I've not done it but don't see why not. It's a good idea IMHO.

      I use mine for recording TV, but use a different device for playback.
      I am replacing my old N36L with the Gen8. I have a PCI Dual DVB tuner and a Usb Dual tuner that I will be moving from N36L to new server. I use a web interface with an EPG to choose what to record and then microserver records it. I then stream the video to devices on my network.

        I tried using 3x USB dual tuners on my N36L but it wasn't grunty enough. I shared the tuners out to my MCE7 HTPC using Dvblink. The HTPC does all the recording. Dvblink can be used via a frontend like kodi so that it does the recording locally on the server as well.

      Thanks guys - that helped me nail it.

      Bought one.

      I'll probably do something like this:
      * Use SSD card for OS (prob Win7 as i'm familiar with it).
      * Buy iLO as suggested.
      * Stick just standard disks in - 2x to start.
      * Get 1-2 dual tv tuner cards - maybe pci or i'll just get USB ones as suggested.

      There goes 2-3 months of my free time, but that's ok.

        Im installing ESXi on mine. Then having a media box, a backup box with crashplan installed and a sophos firewall to control the rest of connections so i can send out a vpn to the rest of my devices on my network.

        Go WD Reds if you intend on keeping it on all day.

        I just set up mine yesterday. I am using NextPVR for recording, with a Hauppauge PCI recording card.
        I have an SSD for OS drive and 4 storage drives.

        If you are planning on using a windows server OS (I used 2012 R2) you will need to add BDA support for your tv card to work.

    old thread I know, but thanks for posting this. I wish I'd seen it

    •  

      Yeah, only $10 more than this which seemed to put OB into meltdown.

      Equivalent deal pops up now and again - i'd say you'll have one within 4-6 weeks.

  •  

    Waiting for similar deal to pop up, my HP ProLiant N36L just died..
