My non-Sky satellite decoder has the ability to stream video over an http / LAN connection to my PC, with the stream playing happily in VLC or Windows Media Player. What I'd LIKE to do is stream it to a second TV in the bedroom.
Reading up on the various capabilities of the latest TVs didn't identify any that would allow me to do this directly, so in the end I went for a great deal on a Sony 32" (CX520) that seemed to have as wide a range of connectivity as any TV, and will at least play (some) DLNA media. The TV has a built in web browser, which will happily browse the web interface of the satellite decoder, but as I expected, it goes blank when you try to stream to it. (bugger!)
My expectation is that I'll need something like a Haupauge MVP-HD or ACRyan media player - if they're capable of processing a HD HTTP stream.
The reason for using the stream, and not just running HDMI from one end of the house to the other, is that the decoder supports streaming of a different channel to that being watched on the HDMI output.
Does anyone know if this is possible, or have any suggestions?
