Next version will support full frame video in Remote Desktop.  Currently, no.  You would have to get a real-time encoder, streaming video server software, and connect to that.

Bassra,

The easy answer in my oppinion is no.

With that said - check this article out:

There may be some more software, and I know there is enterprise level software, but all will require realtime capture, reformatting, and restreaming over the lan.  Once again, easy answer being no.

Good luck,

Sean

You might be able to stream the video input from your TV card via H323, depending on it's drivers.
Try Netmeeting (free!). Set the video input to the windows video your card presents and see how that goes. The clients would have to run netmeeting and join a conference you set up on the machine with the TV card.

If your card were capable of capturing and encoding the content in real-time to your hard disk, others on the network would in theory be able to play it.  However, I can only verify that this works after the capture is complete, not while it is happening live.  I use the Hauppauge PVR-250 and SageTV software.  It sounds like the approach that would work is by using netconferencing software, as suggested by others.
