Streaming Video and/or Live TV to Android Box from your PC HDTV tuner.

I have a GTV220, probably a re-badged ATV1000, connected wirelessly to my network and the methods should work for any TV box.

I have a Dvico Tvix 6600 and Noontech V9-T media players both with twin HDTV tuners connected to my network and a PC with a HDTV dongle.

This method of streaming of live TV could be limited because I also have a DLNA server, Nero Home Media 4, installed on my PC and have that set up to stream live TV over the network.

If you want to access folders on your PC you need to ensure they are shared.

Android Apks you will need for your TV Box are:

Skifta – a DLNA Live TV

Stream Media Player – to play difficult video such as ts (transport stream file format as recorded by the media players when recording live TV) – Note that there are two Stream Media Players available, use the one that shows the movie camera icon.

You must have your TV box connected wirelessly for Skifta to work.

Open Skifta and wait until it updates itself.

Using the Nero Media 4 as the example:

Choose your media source as Nero MediaHome 4

Choose your player as the Shifta player

Choose Browse and play media

Select TV channels (you can also stream video/audio from other shared folders on your PC)

Select and play your TV Channel with your media player – I use Stream Media Player

Enjoy your live TV
