Hi folks,

I am trying to find a solution to sending either an HDMI or Composite output through the TCP/IP network preferably via DLNA.

I found boxes like HDHomerun that do something similar with a tuner. This is my opinion is a lot more complex than what I am trying to do.
I do not need a tuner - just straight A/V signal into DLNA over the LAN, so this technology should be relatively easy to do. Have been doing a lot of searching over here and on the internet but for some reason cannot find any information for a device that can do that.

If you know of any device that can acheive that I would appreciate your feedback.

DLNA ‘pulls’ data to the Receiving device which then converts it to a Video/Audio signal!

If I follow you are looking to ‘push’ Video/Audio’ over a LAN to a single or multiple Displays?

There are HDMI over IP solutions – though keep in mind they don’t tend to live on the same network as your IP traffic and involve compression!

A bit more detail on what you are trying to achieve would be good.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the reply.

I definitely do not want an HDMI over Ethernet solution if I can avoid it.

I have been doing DLNA for quite a while and very happy with it after working most of the kinks out. It is now distributing to all devices in the house (TVs, PCs, Game Consoles, iPADs, Android phones, etc.) from a central Media Server PC where most of the content is stored. So I have the DLNA infrastructure in place and would like to leverage it if possible.

I have an old satellite receiver in my bedroom which outputs either an HDMI or a Composite signal and want to be able to "push" this across the TCP/IP network to other TVs in the house. I am not looking for an HDMI over Cat5 solution as it is not routable and won't be transmitted to multiple devices.

So basically I was hoping for some kind of network appliance that can do:
1. Accept Composite or HDMI Video input
2. Encode to DLNA compatible Mpeg codec (eg., x.264 or xvid)
3. Act as a DLNA/UPNP server and serve the stream over existing Gigabit TCPIP network as well as wireless devices (iPad for example)
The HDHomerun device is so very close to achieving this but not quite since it takes a digital signal via ATSC/QAM tuner and converts it to H.264 before serving it on DLNA as a live stream.
I basically need the same thing except with an HDMI or composite feed. I wasn't able to find anything like this in my searches and was hoping someone here would know.

If such a device doesn't exist I will probably need to run a cable from the video source to my Media Server PC and do the encoding there, I am trying to avoid that due to the need for additional cabling (this would probably be HDMI over Ethernet cable :-) ).

Did you ever find a good solution for this?
