Is there anyway to stream a recorded show to a tv, particularly to roku device. Also anyway to stream live tv to tv?

    If I'm not mistaken, the Rocu streams internet connected media, like NetFlix and Hulu, correct? ... And Time Warner Cable has created a web based resource to provide the Rocu with streaming live TV channels (I don't know what the limitations on recording programming might be, but I'm sure there are some).

    If you are already using MediaPortal for Live and recorded TV, via a TV Tuner Card (various limitations may apply), why do you need to stream it to the Rocu? You can just use a second input to your TV and switch to that when viewing live or recorded TV, and use the Rocu for those subscribed internet media services you want to use on another input.

    You are correct, the Roku streams those types of media. Time Warner did sign up but you have to be an existing customer or they have to provide their service in your area. What I am attempting to do is use my OTA to record shows, have show converted to format Roku plays (this part I can accomplish), then play the show back on Roku. The situation I am running into is finding a media center or TV Guide program that has a Roku channel created where the user can access the guide and files from the Roku front end. I know of one other pvr that a Roku can access but the Roku channel was created but does not work completely and no more development was continued. Would also like to be ale to stream the live ota signal to Roku. This is possible as several larger companies in some areas provide live tv (abc, cbs, fox etc) to customer for monthly price. I dont see a need to pay them even if they existed in my area, to get free ota.
    Thanks for your reply.

    It's working after some hours search: the Auto3D plugin which I haven't used for years was corrupting the start of the TV live stream from server to MP. If anyone has a similar problem - disable all old plugins and then enable one after another :-)

VLC does read the ts files but the TV's remote does not allow to control basic VLC functions like FF or FR or pause etc... Tried 1-2 other apps, even...

    @CyberSimian As I have just posted in the MP2 subforum I will stay with MP1 for the time being. Many thanks for all your very informative and detailed responses. I will take your advice and monitor the Scheduled recordings list for the discrepancies you have described. Cheers.
