  • Video Streaming thru the House

    OK, you guys seem in the know here... googled and found a few things, but wanted to know if I can make a PVR that plugs into my sky cable (not the box itself) and record/watch sky.

    I wanna stream it thru the house to any PC too... can this be done?

    Shopping List greatly appreciated.

    i've heard of Myth and Freevo, but would like to hear yer thoughts.

        I have seen it before, I think it was kinda blue.
        It's the cake having/eating thing.

          ohhhhh... I think I've seen it a few times in some games. I don't see anything special about it.

            In a word, yes, it is possible to do what you're asking - the broadcast part anyway.

            Windows Media Encoder has a "broadcast" function whereby you can set up a streaming audio/video feed, that can be accessed by any device on your network. For example, I have a TV-decoder card in my PC, and I have successfully streamed live TV to my Pocket PC over a wireless network.

            My network is 802.11b, so the quality I could stream left a bit to be desired, but over an 802.11g or wired network it'd be better.

            Regarding your Sky cable - I presume you mean you want to tap the signal after the decoder box? If not, you'll need to find some decrypting software on the web - such software exists, but it is illegal.

            As regards a shopping list:
            - TV decoder card
            - Windows Media Encoder (FREE from Microsoft.com)
