    Live TV/Video With Orb - WORKING!

    I was able to get Orb to work with my DROID to watch Live TV and videos from my home Media Center PC. I found the info on the androidforums website and I must say it is by far one of the coolest things the DROID can do yet.

    Yes an Orb app for android would be ideal. Has anyone had any luck getting a better picture using wifi? It seems to come in over both 3G and Wifi for me but I havent seen any real picture quality differences between the two. When I pump it up to 500kb on wifi it seems to start dropping out so I have been staying at 320kb all the time. During fast motion scenes the low bitrate really shows its face (digital artifacts) as you would expect but would like to up the bitrate high enough to get rid of it over wifi.

    UPDATE: I have now noticed more often then not the audio is out of sync with the video by almost a full second and I cannot figure out why this just started happening. Anyone else have an idea?
