I had no intention of doing this, but what starts as a favor for a friend escalates and people just keep asking I have used this with both main 3g providers and seems OK.



BBC1, ITV1, BBC2, CHANNEL4, CHANNEL5 and ITV3 on your LAPTOP / PC then connect if possible to your main TV; this is all done with a small software package. (No masking required)



So if you want me to set up contact me via Email.



I am not doing this to make a living, for all the critics out there costs will be relative to distance and time, if it doesnít work no charge at all, All programmes will obviously be dependant on your internet speed, so far no problems with 3g.

Just to confirm to some Emails, I am not a business, I obtained some software which is available through public domain; I set this up at home so other half can watch soaps. Just thought I would try and be helpful, (canít believe some emails) can understand why some people just donít bother to try and help.

Why not post the details so those of us with some technical knowledge can set it up ourselves?

Hi KARY44,

As a matter of interest, what is the minimum speed required.

I have 512, OK for Skype etc.

Would be very interested in your system if it will work on my PC @ that speed.

Thanks'

Navek

Hi, roughly how much of your download limit does one half hour episode use? I've only got 4GB at min due to finances, so wondered if it would be worth doing?

Thanks in advance!

I've used a Slingbox over 3g and its perfectly acceptable (but not for football or rugby as its too fast moving). I think what KARY44 is offering is a similar system.

Navek you should be able to use it on 512 but would probably get a picture which isn't perfect as the video streaming wouldn't be too clear. Ideally you would need at least 1mb connection but as I said I've used the 3g which I found pretty good.

Hi Navek

In that case it should be fine. Try it first and see what sort of picture you get. I wire my laptop up to the television by way of an HDMI cable. Picture isn't too bad. It sometimes looks like it raining on the camera but not very often. If you find the picture unsatisfactory then upgrade to see if that makes any difference.

At least you know it won't be scrambled.

phoebe cat I can not answer your question for the system that Kary44 is advertising, as I do not know what that system is.



However in general terms below are some figures from BBC Iplayer for streaming video using their service.



http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/help/streaming_programmes/which_quality



low quality streaming - 500kbps

medium (default) quality - 800kbps

high quality - 1500kbps



these figures are kilobits per second. To go to kilobytes per second you can divide by 8. So for low quality streaming you get 62.5 kilobytes per second = 3750 kilobytes per minute = 225000 kilobytes per hour = approx 219 mega bytes per hour = 0.215 GB per hour



This is for the lowest quality streaming vifeo from BBC iplayer. Higher quality will take more. Downloaded content using the 'default' option takes more.



Hope that helps.
