I'm developing an application to view certain content on a large panel display. I need to add Live TV content to this. I've tried several online streaming services, but none are 100% reliable, so I'm looking for a Device (Maybe slingbox or similar), that can take the TV signal (either digital, or analog from a decoder), and then stream this across the network, so that I can view it either in a HTML page, or as raw media.
Has anyone had experience streaming TV content across a network, and what devices are available to do this?
I suppose a TV Tuner card with something like ORB2 would suffice, but I'm after a better solution that would run stand alone(ie no PC required to stream the media).
