Is there any procuct or software out there that can stream TV over LAN / WIFI ? I was thinking of a TV-card in a PC with some kind of server software that gives clients the opportunity to connect and watch live TV shows as they are received by the TV-tuner card.

The SlingBox works great for this.

Some questions:
Can I connect the Slingbox to my LAN with a RJ-45 cable, or is it intended in some bound way unknown to me, only for internet?
Does ORB and Webguide stream live media from a TV-tuner card, or just recorded videos?

Thanks.

The Slingbox works just fine in a home network ... connect it to your router and you can watch it from any PC on your LAN.

Orb and Webguide lets you stream the media from your PC ... including live TV as long as there's a TV tuner in the PC.
