I have a very similar setup:

Roof Antenna > PlayTV > C1+ (+ HDD) = TvHeadend Server > mpeg2 DVB-T > WeTek Core

All the S8xx series of AMLogic SoC's produce excellent Hardware deinterlacing for watching TV.
To achieve the same deinterlacing results on the RPi2 you have to run a development version of Kodi Jarvis and Overlock.
The trouble is this kills anything else you may want to do on the RPi2 at the same time as It runs out of grunt and slows down.

You will get great TV viewing results both in Android Kodi 15.2rc and OpenELEC using the TvHeadend client, no slowdowns either due to the Hardware deinterlacer on the WeTek Core.

I believe the nVIDIA Shield is using Bob deinterlacing, or blurry Bob as we call it. It nowhere near as good if that is the case. It may improve. I don't know.
Unsure as well about recording IPTV channels or Open Channels if thats what you mean.
These could possibly be setup to record using the TvHeadend server on the RPi2 if you attach a HDD. I record Broadcast TV with the TvHeadend server on the C1+

The cool thing when using Android Kodi, is you can set up Android Apps like Netflix, HBO Go etc as favourites inside Kodi Itself. And then selected say Netflix. Watch your stuff. Hit the Back button on the remote control and your back in Kodi if you want to watch TV or do anything else. It all works quickly and seamlessly for App < > Kodi switching and is a joy to use all on the one device with a single remote control. FLIRC and my Harmony remote also work straight out of the box.

Looks like we have pretty much the same requirements. Smile

Great! That is all I needed to know. Reassuring to have someone with basically the same setup telling me it works Smile

Really considering one of those when it comes out.

Thanks for the info!
