Wouldn't it be great to watch live TV into the PLEX media center app and on your mobile device ? We have a IP DVB tuner for satellite or cable and terrestrial ( sorry no Clearquam or ATSC ) for free to air and crypted tv ( Ci slot and card reader ) and we like to know if anybody likes to watch tv in Plex at home and on the go. The unit generates a TS stream into the local network that can be played with Mplayer / VLC / Boxee and other players already.( TCP and UDP multicast/unicast )

If so we are looking for some help on developing.

Hi,

this may be a daft question, and perhaps i haven't looked hard enough on the forum. Is this still something that is being looked at, or is the eyetv the only option?

thnx.

thanks.

Are both of these requiring a MAC environment? I currently have windows only, and it seems that there everything is based around MAC.

The HDHomeRun plugin does not require Mac OS environment. I use it on my Windows Plex Server and a separate windows Plex client.

I was looking to change my environment to rokus and a plex or mediabrowser 3 server but I am shocked that Plex doesn't even have live TV but mediabrowser does and that software is free and open source.
