I've seen several posts regarding streaming FROM a Pi to something else, but I'm wanting to connect my Pi to my TV, via an HDMI cable, and stream to it from my PC or laptop via my ethernet (or wireless) network. You know, like a Roku-type device. Has anyone done this? If not, does anyone have some suggestions based upon recent experience on a similar project?
We like to watch the occasional baseball game, but we use an antenna to get our 30+ digital channels, so we don't have cable or satellite. MLB games are almost never broadcast on OTA channels anymore. We have a very good internet service so we can watch the occasional game on the internet. In the past I've connected an RGB cable (and an audio cable) from a laptop to the TV to accomplish this, but there's got to be a better way.
