    I know how to stream television onto LiveStream (if you have a TV Tuner Card and your satellite hooked up to your computer.)

    Let me know if that's the kind of thing you're looking to do.

    Alright, since you PM'd me saying that you have a TV Tuner Card, and you have Windows Vista, here is what you do:

    Turn on your Satellite cable box, and set up your PC so that if you opened up Windows Media Center you'd be watching your satellite feed on your computer. If you can see you satellite TV on your computer screen in Windows Media Center, go ahead and close Windows Media Center (you don't need it open)

    Sign up for a free account at www.livestream.com Once you've gotten your account set up, you're going to download the "livestream streaming tool" (which is just a tool that allows you to stream your desktop and other things onto your "livestream channel")

    Now, when you open that tool, it is going to ask you if you want to stream your desktop, what info is being fed into your TV tuner card, or your webcam (you're obviously going to select the second option)

    When you select the second option, it is going to stream whatever is going into your TV tuner card (which you should have set up to be watching your satellite tv) onto your LiveStream channel. Then, you can sign onto your channel from any computer in the world and watch your channel (which will be your satellite tv)

    See this is were im getting stuck ! I thught it was this simple but i think my tv tuner isnt compatible with flash so it doesnt work :( I just bought it for £120 aswell fs. Can anyone confirm this ?

    I have tried to stream it with differant sites and players and it doesnt work, the tv tuner shows up but it doesnt stream anything. It streams no problem from the software that i got with the tuner so its installed ok.
