    Orb does work with live tv with the right capture card, but is not too reliable (if you drop connection, no way to get what you missed). I have had some luck using beyond tv to record in mpeg4 and then streaming the recording a few minutes delayed in orb. The other thing to look at is rock player that can play most video formats and might be able to take a stream from windows media server (free but you need a static ip or dynamic dns).

    Whatever the latest is. I didn't leave it running today, so I'll check the server version when I get home. Client is the current one on the market (have also used Flash in the browser, since it has been available, and it actually gives a little higher quality then the dedicated client).

    I use Slingbox solo to get all the content on my cable box on my Droid 1 using the accompanying Slingplayer app. It works great but be forewarned it drains your battery. You can also stream your Slingbox to virtual any internet enabled device, I also use it to stream to my laptop.

    How are you getting or how do you intend to get TV to your computer to begin with? Do you already have a tuner?
