I am about to install Tubecore on my Media Center, possibly working with tversity on my Home Server. Anyone got this working before?

Installed Tubecore, it found my Windows Home Server no problems. No trying with PlayOn and it works fine - except for the media not available outside the U.S. of course. Will try tversity soon.

Should this also work via a media extender?

freitasm: Some TV - CBS, NBC, CNN and others...


How do you know what content you can watch (outside US) without having to go to each program and then it saying that you can't watch it because you are outside the US?

You don't. I am using PlayOn to test and it lists Hulu, Amazon VOD and Netflix. PlayOn is just a catcher - it runs on a PC in your network and serves up via DLNA. The tubecore client just shows whatever DLNA sends down. When you select a program the PlayOn will try to "tune in" but it's still using your local IP address, so obviously you won't get anything not available outside the U.S.

The dream really would be to have Zune Marketplace as a Media Center addin when it launches here in New Zealand... But I don't think there's a Media Center plan for that.
