    Groovy network streaming

    Gidday all,

    A tip and a newb question...

    About a year ago I stumbled on a GREAT addition for my Tivo... its a pre-configured MPlayer backend and Tivo GUI front end for Windows, called "WinVo".

    You just download a zipfile, extract it in a folder, make a shortcut to the executable, tell it your tivo's IP and bang... you can stream your Tivo programmes to your Windows PC.

    It works amazingly well, even across 802.11g wireless. Surprisingly the Tivo can cope perfectly well with streaming different programmes to at least two PCs at the same time, while still being responsive to a user wielding the remote.

    So anyway, my question is... has anyone found anything similarly slick and easy for linux? I'd love to get this working similarly nicely on Ubuntu, its become my major stumbling block to switching from the Dreaded Doze.

    Cheers all,

    Tony

    Hi Peter,

    Yeah, that's the same thing, though the package I found is pre-configured such that it requires no setup on Windows, so is a breeze to get working for newbs such as myself.

    Here's the link:-

    Cheers,

    I think you missed the point, on the link I gave there is a link to a myth frontend.

    http://www.3wells.net/winvo/ no longer has the WinVo.exe file for download. Anyone else have a copy they could link to or upload?

    Thanks!

    Hi Stuge and all,

    I'll email it to anyone who sends me a private message with your address.

    Incidentally, yes, the software's license permits this.

    Cheers,

    Tony

    There is also a java client on that site, which I've used on Linux. It's probably not as complete as the MythTV frontend, but it does run stand-alone.
