    How to watch a TV over network

    I am new to this and from my bro's request I bought a tv tuner card and installed it on my computer. Now in the other room my brother has a laptop which is connected on network and he wants to watch tv through my tv card. So can anybody suggest me the setup on how to watch tv on network? Thank you for any help.

    There are many software's that will do the job for you. For example with Slingbox, you can watch up to four audio / video sources. The Slingbox PRO connects up to four audio/video sources. You can choose between your cable box, PVR. satellite receiver or DVD player with just a click of a button. Download it from here.

    Did you also try this software called Orb (http://www.orb.com/) that allows you to transmit video without purchasing Slingbox. Another piece of software is TVersity (http://tversity.com/) that is similiar. If you are looking @ DirecTV, they have Beta software available that will allow you to watch anything DVR'd over a network in full HD.
