I've been thinking about a new project to get Freeview over wifi

I only have a Sat dish on the roof - no UHF/VHF aerialFrown
I could use a DVB-S external box (Twinhan) http://www.twinhan.com/product_AD-SB200.asp
connected to a USB-Ethernet device http://www.digi.com/products/usb/anywhereusb.jsp
then to a wifi bridge http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=1&pid=357
I could use an old PC instead, but that could be noisey & not geeky enough
Wife would complain tooWink

I would connect my laptop (over wifi) to the USB Sat tuner box
Roam about the house watching FTA digital on any PC in the house!

I think I would be limited to 12Mbps on the digi
Other options could be a thin client with embedded XP or XBOX??

It would be good to have HTTP streaming for my windows mobile devices
(SP5, Harrier, JAM..)

Someone should market a black box that connects everything
digital & analogue TV,
ADSL router & wireless switch
Video & audio streaming
maybe there is already such a thing

Why do you need Freeview over WiFi? What's wrong with just buying a STB?

You can configure GB-PVR as a server and stream content to any other PC or a Hauppauge MediaMVP via cable or WiFi.
