Hello all, was wondering what (if any) advantage is gained by using the Nextpvr plugin vs Emby's built in DVR. I was using MCE7 for years until that PC died. MCE7 recorded and time shifted live tv with xbox 360's as extenders. I was also using DVRMS toolbox and showanalyzer to automatically skip commercials (which is a feature I'm really missing at this point). I was already using Emby to organize and stream our other media. I've just put together a new rig with Windows 10 64bit, core i5 7400, 16gigs of ram, 250ssd + 4tb for pvr recordings (also use a 10tb NAS for media storage). I'm using Hdhomerun prime with cable card x2. I have everything set up and was hoping to use Roku as extenders. Everything is set up and works, but doesn't feel as polished as my old setup. In my previous set up, commercial skipping occurred almost in real time. Unless I'm mistaken that is not possible with Emby DVR, I was planning on adding MCE buddy to scan and remove commercials in post processing. I looked at Nextpvr's website and didn't really notice any features that aren't possible through Emby's built in DVR. What I'm looking for is any input from people who have used both. If there are real advantages to using Nextpvr then I'll go that route, but if not I like to keep it simple when possible. Aside from MCE buddy, is there any additional software I should check out to remove commercials. Also any tips for a relative noob in this regard are welcome. Thanks
