    After playing with a Android TV box, the kind that people run Kodi on, it occurred to me that there are several applications that such a box, functioning as an input device, would be really handy for, at least for me.

    1. A DTV receiver box, where one or more SDR devices can tune in TV, and then stream it to a (in the home) server or live to an Android TV box.
    2. A surveillance box, where video is streamed to a "server" which runs an app which collects several different cameras, and can save them on a NAS and/or stream them to an Android TV box.

    It would be desirable for each of these to be on a home network.

    So the reason I am posting this is that a couple of evenings worth of searching did not find active candidates for these devices, and it would be nice to know if I am improperly terming what I want to do, or if somehow I have missed the boat. And secondly, if that has not happened, are there any suggestions which I might leverage off of.

    Thanks.
