ThereTV (free version)

ThereTV (free version)


ThereTV is a client compatible to the Sony LocationFree Protocol. To use this app you need a LocationFree Base station from Sony.

WARNING!!! This is a BETA release. It has still several bugs. It is NOT MEANT for production use.

WARNING!! The decoding of the Streams is done completely in software which means the CPU has to do a lot of work. Apparently some phones can't handle this. If your phone is not capable of running it due to heat problems, DO NOT USE THIS APP.

It was developed by reverse engineering the LocationFree protocol.

Sony did not contribute to the development of this software. They however granted me the right to distribute it.

WARNING!!! This software produces a huge amount of network traffic. Make sure that your dataplan covers it.

If you find any bugs please report them in the xda-developers development thread. You can find the link at http://theretv.zero997.com

Supported Base Stations:
* LF-B1
* LF-PK1 (is the same as the LF-B1)
* LF-B10
* LF-B20
* LF-V30

The documentation can also be found at http://theretv.zero997.com .
You will definitely need to read the documentation to use this app.

Special thanks to my alpha-testers:

This used to be a great app - but it seems to stop working after my devices upgraded to android 5

The most useless app I have ever seen I am removing this peace of garbage from my phone and tablet. Not compatible with the Sony location free base station for one thing. My PSP works great with the remote free player. But this will not even playback on my android with all the settings correct. I am deleting, waste of time. You need Sony's official location free player to use the base station. Apps like this are not designed properly for use with this application.

Good app Great app but the video glitches every 2 seconds on my zte orange monte carlo (armv6) even with all settings down low and the stream quality is a bit blurred even at best quality setting, fix these issues and I will definitely buy the app and rate it 5*
