Placeshift your Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 Media Center channels* in various possible qualities, without subscription costs.
That means for example that - if you receive your local station (e.g. sports event) at home on your Media Center - you can stream this live show to your android! Not confined by home or country!
Here's how to: 1. Setup your Remote Potato Server - it's a free download here: http://myfrem.nl/download.html . This is absolutely required to run this app. 2. Test the connection out for free: make sure it works with the free Remote Media Center (RMC) app, downloadable from google play. 3. If you are satisfied with step 2: Get Remote Media Center Live TV - and try with SD channels at home in this app!
Also has the ability to download videos/recorded tv and live tv. And (beta:) transcoding on the server for later playback.
Notes: * This version of RMC is ad free! * RMC streams media which can consume lots of bandwidth especially WHEN using high quality settings - be sure you have a good data plan before you start using 3G and 4G connections to stream your video. * Number of TV channels you can watch simultanuously is limited by the number of androids, free tuners and processing power you have! * For best Live TV results, you need a fast android and fast PC server. * DRM-protected content is not supported. * See myfrem.nl/forum of http://188.8.131.52/forum for discussion and FAQ. * On google TV you can use ES File manager as a player. * Do not use while driving or other activities that might become dangerous. * Be aware that live TV makes use of (temporary) recordings that show up in "Recorded TV'.
