PVR Backend software recommandations?

I'm sure this is a common question, sorry about that. I've read a lot about it and I'm still not sure about which way to go since there are many options.

I'm looking into using Kodi (on Windows 10 HTPCs) with some PVR backend software (on a Windows 10 "home server" or in a headless Linux VM) to replace my existing power hungry HTPC running Windows 7 and WMC. Actually, I've got two HTPCs and wants my recordings to be synced on both. The tunners are two HDHomeRun Connect, connected to an antenna on my roof.

What would be the best software these days that I could just set and forget?

As of right now I'm specifically looking at NextPVR and TVheadend but I'm not quite sure which one to pick. I'm open to other suggestions if there are really better alternatives as well.

For the EPG, I planned to use Schedules Direct.

(I did consider Plex Pass and SiliconDust DVR Service but these two options are more expansive than going with a free software with paid EPG)

Thank you
