Sorry, please be gentle on me, I'm a noob. Is it possible to use this program to send live TV over my local wireless Network? Does Media Portal need to be installed on the other PC ( my low grade laptop)? If it can not be done.. does anyone have any suggestions. I have no tv tuner on my laptop.

This works very nice for me with VideoLAN.

On my HPTC with the Hauppauge PVR 250 i created shortcuts for each channel:

C:\Programme\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe  -I vxwin --ttl 1 dshow:// :dshow-vdev="Hauppauge WinTV PVR PCI II Capture" :dshow-tuner-channel=1 --sout=#std{mux=ts,access=udp,url=}

:dshow-vdev is the name of your tv card.
:dshow-tuner-channel= sets the channel you want to stream.
url= is the ip you stream to.

To watch the stream on the other pc i created this shortcut:

C:\Multimedia\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe udp: --video-on-top --zoom 0.5

The only problem I have, when booting up the htpc and starting the shortcut the streaming doesn't work. I need to start mp and to goto my TV first. Then everything is fine.
