Just bought a Galaxy 9600GT OC Edition for $181 off trademe and am waiting for it in the post. Do I have to have Vista for the GFX Card to decode the H.264 stream? Can't wait to get the card aye, specially for gaming :-). Also what would be the best way to stream Freeview HD around the house but still have my main pc doing the decoding/hardwork? Mediaportal Server. Btw I have a HVR-3000 card, 2.8ghz Pentium D, 2gb ram 750gb HDD space :-)
Yes, unfortunately, the clients will have to do all the decoding. However, one may be able to passby this limitation with some sort of wireless AV Sender/Receiver set.
I might do a bit of research to see if there is any host decoding media server software around. My wife's laptop is not quite up to scratch when it comes to decoding/transcoding FreeviewHD TV3 here in NZ.
Edit: I just found out that Webserver plugin for DVB Viewer maybe able to transcode DVB streams. I'll play around with it a bit later on and post my results.
