For a while, I've wanted to use an RPi as a low cost sling-box (takes your sky box video and streams it out over t'internet)
I want to be able to leave the room, go into kitchen and make a cuppa while still watching whatever is on main TV screen on my 'droid
Sling-box does have an droid app for £25!!!!!! (I'm NOT paying that for an app!) so I need another solution
(Wife won't allow TV in kitchen - says it distracts the kids from eating even though 1 They are 21 and 19 and 2 Don't live with us much anymore!)
No-ones come up with a USB capture card solution (AFAIK) so my next idea is just simply point an RPi camera at the TV screen and stream that out to my 'droid.
I can live without sound as kithchen isn't far from Living Room and I can still hear it but need a low-latency solution otherwise the lip-sync will drive me nuts.
So, If your bored this weekend and you fancy a little project....
