I have a firewall server (2008 R2) which I also have uTorrent client installed on running as a service to download my desired hdtv episodes.
I also have another server (2008 R2 also) which acts as a VM host and also hosts my fileshares on an array of large drives - the completed WTV files reside here.
I have a Windows 7 Ultimate HTPC in my living room - Media Center points to the fileshares on the VM host for its media libraries.
I currently have a NAnt scripted task running on the media center which hourly moves any mkv from the firewall server to the local drive and then processes the mkv using 'MKV TV Show to WTV' profile - it then moves successfully created WTV to the fileshare and they duly appear in the media center 'Recorded TV' library - which is great but this process relies on moving files across 2 machines which also involves a slow ethernet over power connection so can take in excess of 30 mins per episode in data transmission alone.
If I can configure my VM host to be able to simply pull the mkv and perform the dvrms task it would be far more efficient since I have gigabit ethernet between the servers and I don't have to have the Media Center powered up on a permanent basis.
I hope this explanation gives you a better idea what I am aiming for? It's not that I can't get what I want - it's just I want it to work faster and more efficiently :)
Thanks for your time.
(I should add that I store all my media on a filehost as opposed to the media center simply because I have several other Media Centers around the house and also stream my content via TVersity when I am out and about).
