    2.4 Ghz video?

    Does anyone know if there is any software that'll allow me to recieve 2.4 Ghz video transmissions?

    Wow or any idea on the hardware I'd need? Maybe just an 2.4 antenna and a video card with a video IN?

    The traffic cameras around here transmit (supposedly) on 2.4 Ghz. I think it would be cool as hell to be able to see just what in the hell is causing the traffic jam ahead and such.

    Those things are pricey. I was hoping maybe for a software based solution.

    I think you'd need some type of Reciever hardware, more than just an antenna. You need something outside the computer to turn the signal into a composite video (or vga, or something), the only other way to get it into the computer would be through usb or firewire, but that would cost more, because it would be a computer specific solution.

    Charliey is right, you will need some sort of hardware to receive the signal, and transcode into something that the computer can understand. I have not yet seen anything computer based that can receive wireless video. Doesn't mean it doesn't exist though...

    The easiest computer based solution would be wireless internet access, and see if there is a website that allows you to view the traffic cam feeds.

    What about hacking an XCam receiver module to accept an antenna and plugging it in the video 2 slot of my lcd?

    radio shack sells a video/audio receiver that ive been using to pump divx out the the bigscreen. Works quite well link.

    I wonder if you can use the receiver to tap into this frequency?

    Hey how about this I think this just might do it assuming it transmits @ 2.4 ghz and more importantly receives @ 2.4
