Live TV

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'.

Love this app!! I travel quite often and the Remote Media Center has allowed me to simply transfer my shows from my PC to my tablet. I know other apps work, but this makes the job very simple because it is so much like my Windows Media Center at home.

This app is working, find the settings that work for you. Had the app for a couple of days, tried it out and was not getting good results. After resetting everything on the network, ie routers, host computers etc and helpful feedback and suggestions from the developer, the app runs fairly well. I the main thing for android mini stick computer users such as myself, not to use the rewindable option. It seems to not like that options activated as the stream goes for about five seconds then comes to a halt. Without that option active I seem to get a descent stream. Still hiccups from time to time and I have a wishlist of things I would like for example a less modular interface. If it were a fully integrated program guide that overlays the video stream...this app would be 5 stars! Great work

Great Solution 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! With a Windows media center extendor I never have to worry about a livetv DRM copy protection, and my tuners are network based anyway, so it does puzzle me that I occasionally run into DRM issues with this app.

Chromecast works again Shortly after my last review where the chromecast wasn't working I downloaded the newest version of the chromecast app 1.9.6 which isn't in the market yet and tried streaming once more. It actually worked straight to the chromecast. I'm not sure what the problem was before but I am pleased!

Refund? Does not work. I setup a server, completely disabled firewalls, and setup port forwarding. Tested, and port forwarding was definitely working. But remote potato will not connect. Got it to work over lan, but if I am at home, I can just watch tv the old fashioned way. Waste of money. Port forwarding is setup correctly. Using latest verson of app and server. I would expect this hassle if it was free, but generally if you spend money on something, you expect it to work. Garbage!!!
