Live TV


Placeshift your Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 Media Center channels* in various possible qualities, without subscription costs.

That means for example that - if you receive your local station (e.g. sports event) at home on your Media Center - you can stream this live show to your android! Not confined by home or country!

Here's how to:
1. Setup your Remote Potato Server - it's a free download here: http://myfrem.net/download.html . This is absolutely required to run this app.
2. Test the connection out for free: make sure it works with the free Remote Media Center (RMC) app, downloadable from google play.
3. If you are satisfied with step 2: Get Remote Media Center Live TV - and try with SD channels at home in this app!

Also has the ability to download videos/recorded tv and live tv. And (beta:) transcoding on the server for later playback.

Notes:
* This version of RMC is ad free!
* RMC streams media which can consume lots of bandwidth especially WHEN using high quality settings - be sure you have a good data plan before you start using 3G and 4G connections to stream your video.
* Number of TV channels you can watch simultanuously is limited by the number of androids, free tuners and processing power you have!
* For best Live TV results, you need a fast android and fast PC server.
* DRM-protected content is not supported.
* See myfrem.nl/forum of http://159.253.0.177/forum for discussion and FAQ.
* On google TV you can use ES File manager as a player.
* Do not use while driving or other activities that might become dangerous.
* Be aware that live TV makes use of (temporary) recordings that show up in "Recorded TV'.

This product/app is Google Cast™ Ready for which an in-app purchase is necessary.

Great Solution What PVR should we use with this on Win10? I have always been using Win Media Center and a couple network based tv tuners, so though I miss orbcast, This is actually a better live tv slinging/casting solution!

Works great...until it doesn't. Used to work fine, but hasn't worked for months now. Developers usually are very responsive, but lately have not been responding to help requests. 1: Live TV streams for about a 20 second and then quits. 2: Unreliable connection. Sitting on couch, "Server timed out" error... 20 min later (after making no changes) logs in instantly. Okay for a free app but too many problems. If you want something simple and reliable, then ante up and go with Plex for recorded media and Tablo for live tv streaming.

Very good Works great on most everything after tweaking the settings enough, except android devices. Does not work at all with my galaxy note 2. Freezes after about 20 seconds everytime on every type of media I try to stream to it.

Chromecast won't work Decent app. Paid for the chromecast extension but can't get anything to load. Server is up to date and I can't figure it out.

Very good. Even though I think it could use a few minor UI improvements, and after using this app for awhile, I upgraded my rating to 5 stars. Takes a little tweaking to get it going good but worth the effort.
