Stream Cable/PPV to multiple MD's
« on: January 13, 2009, 08:47:00 pm »
I'm trying to stream TV, specifically On-Demand/PPV to multiple MD's.  However, when I use the floorplan to play the media in multiple locations it tells me that there aren't any available Tuners.  Can I stream the feed from one tuner to multiple MD's?  If so, how?

I have my cable box connected to the SVideo port of my tuner card.

I see the same thing when I try to stream live TV to multiple MD's via floorplan, I just assumed that it wasnt possible

Use the np_LiveTV mediatype to do this, instead of wasting tuner outputs in MythTV.

for me, since I have a DCT-6412 cable bo, I see:

LiveTV (DCT6412) in my media scenarios menu.

Once this is active, you can trigger multiple endpoints on the floorplan and it will work just fine.
