Stream TV Remotely to Your PPC for Free

A very interesting post in the PocketPC Thoughts forums purports to do just that -- stream tv content from your tuner-equipped desktop PC to your Pocket PC.

The author's own comment is

Use at your own risk, it works but it is not pretty.
but if you're interested in doing something like this it might be a good place to start. Let us know if you give it a try!

What a coincidence, I was looking into that myself last week and thinking of a way how I could stream live-TV on my PDA

At home, I have a digital TV receiver (Nokia Dbox 2) powered with the Linux-based Tuxbox software. This allows me to run a local web server on the receiver, which can then be accessed either locally or remotely through http://ip.of.dbox:8080. I can also directly capture or stream DVB (digitalvideo broadcast) data through another port, 31337. Unfortunately, the streamed data is in MPEG2 format, and I don't know of any media player for Palm OS or Pocket PC that can decode MPEG2 as of right now. I know Picard of BetaPlayer mentioned he was considering MPEG2 support in a future update of BetaPlayer. Until then, I might try out the method Bob has referred to.

Finland is currently doing mobile TV tests for a selected number of mobile phone customers. Man, now I wish I lived in Finland!
