Ive got my whole HTPC set up and running with EPG and everything
My qustion is, is it possible to view live tv on a laptop without tv tuner,
The laptop is also running w7 rtm and is on the same network as htpc
vinnieg: Yep :) as long as your HTPC has a tuner and i'm guessing it does :)
Goto the media centre on your HTPC and setup the Tuner.
On your laptop, simply goto media centre, choose recorded TV and TV, goto Live feed and boom :) bingo you are in
easy as pie
hbk: So another box running Win7 can be used as an extender? I didn't think that was possible. Does it have to be set in an extender mode? And can you get the EPG etc on it? Probably still cheaper to get a Xbox360 to do the job though.
vinnieg: Or have you tried the Webguide plugin above?

Webguide is no longer being developed and does not work with Win7.
There has been talk of a mesh version of Webguide, but we'll have to wait and see if that eventuates.
