Is a digital off air antenna

Media server / laptop
, downloaded shows or dvds and hdmi to a flat screen
tv works well for us. We have a nas and external hard drives as local backup.
Don't waste your time with any streaming options. We dont watch live tv so cant comment on sat tv options.
We're about to ditch our wdtv live for an intel nuk as our media server. The wdtv used to work well when not connected to the net but is now useless after numerous upgrades.
All 12v, low wattage except for the tv which we run from a small inverter
. Laptops also charge from an inverter
We also use bbc iplayer which downloads locally. Its drm time restricted.
