  1. @jocaan You could just use your Win 7 Media Center box as a standalone machine. Just keep it offline. I am not clear on how you're getting your cable, is it a separate line w/o Internet? One crazy geeky thought...depending on your machine specs, you could run Win7 in a VM and still use Media Center. It would take some tinkering, but "should" be an option. Another option and I know this could be a pain, depending on how much local content you have, would be to switch to Plex. https://www.groovypost.com/howto/record-live-over-the-air-tv-with-plex-dvr/ https://www.groovypost.com/unplugged/get-started-killer-plex-app-apple-tv/
  2. @Wade There is a lot that can be going on here. We need more details, what is your OS? Are you getting any types of errors? Could you post a screenshot if you are?
  3. Instead of shutting down your computer all the time, I would suggest putting it into Hibernate mode. It's a low-power state and will allow you to pick up right where you left off -- much faster that a complete reboot every day.
