I was wondering if anyone has heard of any support coming for the WD TV which will interact with Win TV Extend?
While I find the WD TV LIVE to be excellent for streaming domestic network content (music, even MKV video!, etc) I want to be able to stream cable TV over my network… no different than I can with my Xbox Media Player Extender. Using an over-the-air hauppauge capture card plugged into the WD TV to view Live TV misses the mark - but is so close!
It is unfortunate that Xbox is no good at playing MKV or other high res (domestic network content) formats otherwise I’d stick with that solution and get one for every TV in my house… but it can’t… so I’ve gone down the path of WD TV LIVE (which seems pretty great for every video format).
At the end of the day, I want to reduce the number of HD Cable Boxes I have (Rogers In Ontario chargest $15 a month rental fee for each - I have to rent 2 = Stupid) and connect my WD TV LIVE to my network’d computer’s Hauppauge Collosus like I can do with Media Center and play all my domestic network content and what I capture off cable… if it could do that, I’d get one for every TV.
Anybody know of a solution that can do this other than buying a computer for every TV?
