Hi - Watched the Allblacks game last night on rugby.livesport.tv on my computer running windows 7. I have an Apple TV and would have prefered to watch it on my 50" tv but although I got it working on my iphone 4 I was unable to airplay to the tv. I could airplay video clips on that site but when it came to live streaming I got a message on screen saying something like "content denied" . I also have a Panasonic freeview recorder DMR-XW440 and tried streaming through its browser app but it was way too slow.   Is there another way to do this?
Cheers Ross

Easiest way is to plug a HDMI cable - if your PC has a HDMI output.

Streaming to Apple TV is possible with some software such as Air Parrot but expect high latency and not great performance for sports viewing.

Out of interest, how was the service? Are you using a geo-unblocker? (I have UnoTelly). Would you recommend as a viable solution for watching the World Cup?

I have a little Windows 8.1 TV box (a Minix Neo Z64) which is attached to my TV via HDMI cable, so I would be able to stream direct to the big screen via this.

Raspberry Pi 2 and Kodi - total cost around $60. Add a remote and sensor for $15 from ebay.

Hi Littleheaven  - I was quite happy with the quality of the rugby stream on my 23' computer monitor although definitely not HD. Might be a different story when connected to my 50" tv for this weekends game. Streamed using dns4me and only stopped once for about 3 seconds during the entire game

Cool, thanks for the info. I might check it out if the ITV stream doesn't cut it during the World Cup. I tried the mirroring on their app via my AppleTV last night and it was acceptable, though not hi-def.
