    You can accomplish that with DirecTV2PC.

    The only way you can get LIVE streaming to your PC is with a box tied to the PC. For instance, I have a HR21-200 connected to this PC here, and I use Media Center to interface to it and watch LIVE TV on this PC.

    Or you can start a recording on a DVR then play it back on your laptop via Direct2pc in real time as it records. Do this often.

    Same here, but I call it "close to live" since there is at least a 30 second delay. When I'm watching 2 sporting events on the same DVR and swap to the tuner I'm watching on my laptop, you can see how much of a delay there is.

    I said to heck with it and just bought a Slingbox Pro-HD. If sometime in the future there is a better solution I will just resell it.

    I don't know, I have two Slingboxes and I'm still excited to see what DIRECTV has to offer.

    While that works, I was being technically literal to the LIVE thing (which it isn't really, there are delays in the system all over the place, latency aside, built in delay). :) So yeah, you could...I'd be stuck on LIVE. :)

    Yeah, I have the older model, which works well too, just not entirely HD though. :)

    You need to first go into the proper forum (check the forums tab above)...

    Once there, the New Thread button can be used to start a thread - there may also be such a thread already started...so you may consider doing a search on that first...that button is also at the top of the screen here...

    I've already logged 10 hotel nights in 2011, with 4 more to come this month. 14 scheduled for next month too.

    10 already? Has me beat. I'm at 7 and already scheduled a few in Feb. and more out through April. Could use a product like this since I never owned a Slingbox.

    Seven here too.

    Looks like there's a market for something that will add joy to road warriors.

    I'm not even a road warrior and I'd find this useful. ;)
