The guys over at The Unofficial Apple Weblog have pointed out a cool tutorial by Erica Sadun over on MacDevCenter.com.
The tutorial is a full guide demonstrating how two Macs, one equipped with an EyeTV-compatible tuner and driver software and both equipped with the open source VLC media player, can set up an active video server to record HDTV content from one Mac and stream it to other Macs and PCs throughout the house.
Once complete, users can configure VLC to act as a web-based remote control, flipping channels on other computers throughout the home or network while the server pushes the content through.
The guide is a few pages, complete with full tutorials and visual guides. Older Macs can be used as a server, Saldun referencing as to how even a 733 MHz Power Mac G4 was capable of performing the task.
Read it over and see what you think. And if you’ve built or been involved with any similar projects, let us know.
