I did a search, but couldn't find this particular issue, so please point me to it if it's out there......


I want to be able to run streaming internet content to my HR24 in the living room from the PC in my office. In particular, live sporting events that I can access on espn.com. Is this even possible, and if so, how do I go about it?


I'm running Windows 7 and the DVR is whole-home connected.

Probably the easiest way

In my opinion (for now)


it skips the DVR and goes directly to your TV

The trade - off is you have to change your TV Input when using it and then back

again to use the HR24.

Yup, not going to happen with the DirecTV DVR.  you will need a "streaming box". the Chromcast seems like a good option.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
