I've developed an addiction to the 6:30 national news(?) broadcasts. Occasionally I'd like to sit on my porch or in the backyard where there is no television set. I stream audio(MP3) and video(MP4) with no trouble; what is needed to stream live television? I've captured some as .ts and post-converted to MP4, but how about live?

The experiments are with an Hauppauge 950Q USB tuner on Windows 7 Professional.

Thanks!

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine

Or a Belkin @TV Plus for about $110 shipped. Free iPad and Android tablet apps vs. paid for Slingbox.

OP here ... I felt sure there would be a software solution, and found that if I upgraded to the full version of TSReader, it would do it via VLC; it will do 1 minute with Lite. Then I found Orb which seems, SO FAR, to work fine and at no cost.

Thanks!
