What to use to "share" tv input across lan?

    I have a Radeon 64 DDR VIVO works fine for my needs.

    I have 5 pc's in my house all connected via ethernet.

    I'd like to be able to "stream" the tv out to the 4 other pc's when they
    want it.

    Thinking something that'd use direct ip to ip (running tcp-ip on ethernet)
    would work.

    Running Messenger or NetMeeting isn't an option as ATI doesn't work when
    running 98SE (so no video to stream).

    Ideas please :)

    Hang on. The TV out of the Radeon? So you want your desktop "streamed" to
    the other machines? What for? (sounds like a silly question) is it for
    watching movies or or playing with the desktop or what? Do you want to take
    advantage of the theatre overlay mode (if you have it)?

    The options will be different depending on whether you want an overlay on
    the main machine to appear on the other machines... I'm not sure what you

    If you explain what you actually intend to do I might be able to come up
    with something.

  3. As far as I understand you want to stream the TV input from his card? If so,
    try the MS Media Encoder 7, it can broadcast over Ethernet quite well, I
    used it by myself, the clients can just connect to the IP of the streaming
    PC and watch the video.
    hope that helps

    Check out ATI's web site, in Dec the new Catalyst version will support
    video streaming.

    I'll don't think a Radeon 64 will work with MMC 8.8. This card is now legacy
    and no longer supported by ATI. While I applaud ATI for adding video
    streaming. it's still wait and see how they pan out before loading.
