Is there a way to watch my directv on my PC in the other room? :confused
if you live in europe, then why not have a look at this
no tv card needed just a broadband connection
Nope, here in the USA That is a cool item though!!
I thought I saw something that picked up the signal from the satellite box for the PC. I may be wrong
No, you are not wrong. But... this kind of discussion could be "ilegal" in this forum.
Try Google and look for FTA sites (you will find many free of them) or DVB cards.
Another but, your Direct TV, will not get it by that way.
I have had direct tv for a few years and there is no way that I have found to get around that box they force you top have. (so far). That was the one good thing about cable you could run a line to your pc. however this is still not a good enough reason for me to go back to cable.
over here in the sunny uk you can get live tv streamed into your pc, without the need for tv cards or boxes,
itv is one company that does this, they used to use adobe player but have changed to silverlight - so i can't get it on my pc at the moment as i run linux,
its legal and all you need is a tv licence
Oh I wasn't looking for illegal :-o
I thought there was a way to wireless route your TV. IF I buy another Directv box what would I need to use my PC as my TV? Is that a better question??? :-D
Do any of you remeber the "Rabbit"?? it wasn't illegal.
Rabbit, I like that in a dish...
And talking about dishes... I do not know where are you... But you can get a satellite dish and whatever comes with it... And if you add an infrared sender you can send that signal to other room... Is that a better answer???:-D
So I can beam my dish signal lol I thought IR had to line up. But I don't know this stuff or I wouldn't be on here asking :-D
Easiest way might be to use a Slingbox.
Complicated way might be installing video capture card into your machine, route the video into your capture card, then use something like VLC to serve the video stream out to the net. You would then need an IR controller that hooks up to your machine so you can change channels on your STB.
Thats IT the SLINGBOX!! A million thanks elbiatcho1
Thought I lost my mind there for a bit but I knew I heard about something and it is the Slingbox :-D:-D:-D:-D
I still have my rabbit - watch what is on the VCR on a different tv elsewhere in the house. I figured later it was easier to just buy more VCRs, LOL. Of course come Feb. 2009, they will be next to useless unless I anti-up for some boxes.
