Does anyone else run a rpi media center?
I currently run OSMC on my raspberry pi 2 with all my media saved on my NAS attached to my router. For live TV I've built a playlist of every US, UK and Canadian TV channel I'm interested and could find, so my RPI has PVR functionality and streams live TV without a subscription.
For remote control I use Yatse with its suite of plugins so I can cast videos, music etc to the media center from my phone, it also has the functionality to stream live TV and all my media to my phone as well.
For such a low cost solution (cost me less than $60 all in), I wouldn't recommend anything else to people if they like tinkering, as it does take about a day to setup everything to work seamlessly.
