Is osmc thinking about new devices.
I am starting to think a NAS, with PVR would be a wellcome addition in the product line up.
The power management of the raspberry pi and those SOC’s is still a major issue and you have to buy a decent usb hub which might do the job (which sometimes cost more than the SOC itself) , but i am still experiencing power fluctuations when the device is in heavy use. (raspberry pi 3b)
I have plugged in my hub, a usb 3 1 TB hard drive and a TV dongle . I used to have also a DVD player but i had to remove it because it was too unstable. The hard drive is starting to be full and I am considering buying a NAS with a big capacity >5 TB because HD movies recorded in PVR, takes lots of spaces >5Gb. and I would like to just copy my DVD collection over without worrying about space. I would like also to create a small server with tvheadend and be able to have at least two or three dongles plugged in to deliver content to different devices or being able to record multiple channels at the same time.
It might be a little bit a niche device and out of scope of the osmc brand but i think it would be a great addition, because it goes opposite to the market trend which is to register to all those streaming services and to not own any digital content.
