    Hauppauge just launched a product that claims to stream live TV to your iPad's browser called WinTV extend. It is a free download for anyone with a Hauppauge tuner. I am using the 950Q.

    The problem is that there is basically zero documentation that explains the steps and I haven't been able to get it to work. Here's the only instructions I've found:
    How do you point your browser to your PC? 192.168.... but what port? I've got crappy OTA digital reception and can't tell if my problem is in the streaming or the terrible reception.

    Is anyone else trying this?

    This is NOT free software. You need version 7.2 which is ONLY available through their website (pay downloads not available) and only via snail mail. How do I know? I ordered their CD last week.

    Yes it is free to existing customers. The problem that you are experiencing is due to the fact that they expected existing customers to have kept their original cd. No one can blame you, it was a miracle I still had mine.

    Edit: it's all spelled out here in their installation note.

    If you have none of that, what do you need to buy to make it work for you?

    And has anyone tried it yet? Good? Choppy? Blocky?

    Anyone...? Anyone...? Bueller....? Bueller....?

    Deeny, so i assume that you still haven't been able to make this work? I read somewhere that they didn't think it would work over3g. I only have my wifi right now, but I had to order the cd as well (what is this, 1998?). Anyways, once i ge the cd in the mail,I will be working to figure this out... Bass is doing the same, so it's up to the 3 of us.... I cant wait to be able to have my directv on my iPad no matter where I might be.

    Just an update for those of you lurking on this subject...

    It appears that hauppauge did the press release before this was actually available, based upon info over on their support forum.

    Deeny, I see you are active over there too... Let me know if you figure something out.
