I am looking for a way to stream live tv from my fileserver which is equipped with a tv tuner card, to my various xboxes in my home. I've gotten that far already, but I need the ability to change the channel from within XBMC without disconnecting from the stream and doing it manually (or some other "clunky" way).
I've tried Sage TV and a couple others to no avail. I'm at the point of considering installing linux and mythtv server on my fileserver. However, this will be a PITA since setting up printers that are shared over a network is a pain in linux (and the fileserver is also my printserver).......plus I don't even know if it will work. I'm sure I can stream like that but will I be able to browse the channels relatively fluently?
This is the last remaining obstacle to me ever having to switch video input from my Xbox. As is, I use XBMC for every single thing I do as far as home entertainment, EXCEPT watch livetv. To do that I have to change my tv input from xbox to cable. Granted, it is only a couple button presses.......but I would much prefer it through XBMC.
Also, since I get notified of emails, phone calls/caller id, etc etc.....I would prefer to always have XBMC open.
If anyone has any currently working methods for this, PLEASE let me know as I've been searching for a few months now without success.
