I have an Asus Chromebox running Openelec/Kodi, which has been rock solid for 2 years.  I'm not sure Kodi can be used as a DVR as I never use that function.  I don't ever feel the need to since literally every show is available for streaming at any time.  Check in to the Kodi forum for the DVR capability, I know that they have been working on it.

With PlayOn, https://www.playon.tv/ , you can record shows.  I think right now they have a lifetime subscription for $40.  I haven't used PlayOn but it looks pretty cool.

I have a mac mini running JRiver Media Center using JRemote IOS app on my Iphone to remote control it.
Not only can i play files on my local hard drive through my sound system, i can stream it to my Iphone to play
on that and using JRiver's media server functions, can remote control the stream to other WIFi zones in my house via
it's DLNA server, to a Chromecast Audio > digi out > DAC > preamp using BubbleUPnP (a free mac software)

Also using Jriver's Media server function, can stream to my Iphone anywhere in the world where i can get a LTE or WiFi signal
> Airplay > Bluetooth directly to head unit in my car. Basically i can access all of my 130,000 tracks i have on home mac mini anywhere.
Jriver also plays video to my TV via HDMI out on mac mini.
