And can I use existing remotes for controlling Kodi to change channels?For the PVR portion do I need a separate Raspberry Pi receiver to record?Does the PVR recorder need a separate external Hard Drive or can it be stored on a NAS?How do I link Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, YouTube to Kodi? do I need a separate Raspberry Pi for that?I realize these are a lot of questions and I am knew to this technology. Store clerks are not that knowledgeable with DIY and open source set-ups and you have done it so have some expertise and experience with the subject.Thank you again for the help

    Yes it does Thanks I will keep you posted on my progress.
