(Audio/Video) HDMI or other to my HomeNetwork (router)

Looking to find a way (hardware & software....)

Is it possible to connect one output of a numeric receiver(cable or satellite)
(hdmi, composite, components, etc)
to a piece of hardware that would than connect to my router (ethernet)

than watch it on a device connected to my network(router) wireless or wired, like a PC, PORTABLE PC, PORTABLE MAC, Ipod, Ipad.

I hope this exist !

thank's !

(I hope I posted this in the best thread for my question !)

It's possible and it does exist!
What you seem to be describing is a computer with a tuner(s) card installed running a media center application like Windows Media Center, NextPVR Media Center or Media Portal.
I use NextPVR with Over The Air(broadcast TV) and can watch live TV and recordings, videos and music on my TV as well as two other PCs on my network. I can also stream LiveTV and recordings, videos and music to my phone or netbook anywhere with internet access and manage my recording schedule.
If you are using cable or satellite with a set top box(STB) then a Hauppauge 2250 MCE kit is worth looking at. It has two tuners, a remote and a "blaster" to control the STB.

Slingbox-HD would fit your request.

Last night, I browsed the internet to search and I found

Elgato HDHomerun, that does almost exacltly what I would like, stream at home only. But it only accept OTA ATSC. Built in doubble tuner.
And they specify that in anyway, it will not work trying to input, any setop box.
like cable or sattelite digital. (execption it accept Cable clear QAM)

Hauppage Broadway, It would do exaclty what I am looking for. But it also works like the slingox slingmedia, which is streaming also to the internet.

What I would like to be able to do with those two last one, (Haup.Broadway & Slingbox) is NOT to use or to be capable of DISABLING the internet streaming.

Anyone with experiences or knownledge of those (3) pieces of hardware ?

I don't understand this part...
Use of a wireless client needs 100Mps for FULL HD (256kps is a reduced stream quality) (How to?)

NEWA the web server portion of NPVR uses VLC to break the video down to a streamable bitrate so you need to have VLC on the iPad. But this involves "jailbreaking" the iPad which may void a warranty. VLC was offered at the iStore but has since been withdrawn by the folks at VLC, but you can get the app at their site and it's free.
You can manage/schedule your recordings without VLC.
OR you can use "AirVideo" (from the iStore $3 + server-free) but I don't think it does live TV or wether it works outside your LAN.

For full high definition (1080p/5.1 Dolby surround sound) you need at least 100mps bandwidth. Thats the speed at which the data can travel though the cable from your PC to your router. So your routers wireless speed should be that or greater. Most older routers(3-4yrs) are only 54mps. In NPVR you can use a laptop as a wireless client on your LAN and enjoy all the features of the server back at the main TV. I do this often in the summer on my balcony with my netbook. My router (D-Link DIR-615) has a minimum wireless connection speed of 130mps. If you don't need the full HD effect you can use the NEWA and stream liveTV or play recordings at a much lower bitrate (512kbs) within your LAN if your router is too slow.


Sorry, I thought you said iPad not iPod
well there's an app for dat:
