NextPVR is a mildly customizable personal video recorder (PVR) and Media Center application for Windows.
You have access to its Electronic Programme Guide where you can watch (and pause) live TV and schedule your favorite shows for viewing at a later time. You will be able to relax with a DVD or play back your music, videos, and photos stored on your PC or other devices across your home network.
NextPVR includes support for multiple clients (including thin client devices such as the Popcorn hour), distribute your media experience freely around the home. Away from home, you can take advantage of the web interface to schedule and stream media using a PC or a suitable mobile device. Not to mention the fact that you can also extend your experience with an increasing range of plugins. They will provide additional features such as weather, RSS Readers, and Internet radio.
