Shhh… I had a secret when I wrote the last post.
I said to myself, “self, why not try that… what’s the worst that can happen?”
Well, the best happened.
We can now watch TV that we tape on our computer on our TV (through windows media center). The resolution is kinda crappy… but it will let me fast forward and all that jazz. We can also watch any movies that are on our computer or pull up photos or music. I need to look more into the resolution issues.
It’s now a DNLA server, I guess (or maybe windows is…) ….
I am guessing you could do that with any of the sony internet-enabled products like the dash, etc.
Of course, you’d also need windows 7 to just be able to add it to your homegroup. If you had a previous version you can add it to your network but it’s more painful.
Anyway, so our current options:
- Hulu plus (still can’t resume play, and it’s having a LOT of content errors lately, driving me isnane — I am thinking strongly of canceling when our freebie is up)
- Netflix (LOVE it
- Watch things that we tape on our desktop (you need to have a TV tuner in order to be able to tape things on your desktop — fyi, we already had one)
Anyway, still very happy we did it. Love my new lower cable bill. Still sad about Sister Wives, but that’s pretty well the only thing. I hope TLC gets on the internet TV bandwagon SOON! 🙂
