I'm trying to use the raspberry pi as a set top box to watch UK DVB transmissions (freeview).
I have one pi setup as a server with TVheadend, this works fine, I can view tv really smoothly on any of my xbmc boxes, xbmcbuntu, samsung galaxy tablet etc around the house.
Trying to use another raspberry pi as a client seems to be full of problems....
I have bought the MPEG-2 codec licence, but openelec and raspbmc are just too slow and buggy.
I have managed to find PIDVBIP, a simple client for just connecting to tvheadend and playing the tv stream. This runs a lot smoother.
Is there a better solution out there, that I may have overlooked?
My current challenge is to have this controlled by IR remote control, will post separately about that.
Many thanks in advance
