    TVHeadend is the way, I’ve been running it with a USB satellite tuner for 5+ years. Setting it up can be a little confusing, but once it’s running you pretty much never have to touch it again.

    As for clients, there’s a Jellyfin plugin, however it seems to not work for me right now.

    My client of choice is Kodi with the TVHeadend plugin, and that works great. If you still want Jellyfin integration, you could just add your recordings folder as a library in Jellyfin.

    Could I purchase two different brand drives and use them with btrfs?

    I don’t quite remember the source for this, but I believe I read some time ago that it’s actually a good thing to have separate drives. The reasoning is, if you buy two identical drives (at the same time), the likelyhood of both drives failing around the same time is severely higher.

    This is then amplified by the fact that rebuilding a RAID puts a lot of strain on the non-dead drive, so if ie. drive 1 dies and drive 2 is about to die, the strain you put on drive 2 in order to rebuild your RAID onto drive 3 might kill drive 2 before you even finish rebuilding your RAID.

    Again, this is just from my memory, it might be worth doing some more research on.

    Slightly old post, but hopefully still helpful to someone:

    I managed to read out my analog water meter using the following ESP32 image: https://github.com/jomjol/AI-on-the-edge-device

    It uses an ESP32-CAM module that actively reads your meter, using machine vision. The data is then published via MQTT. There are even some stl files for cases/mounts for common energy meters.

    Once setup properly (with a 3D printed case from the provided stl files), I found it to work quite well. I have a pretty clean standard German water meter though.
