I am think of buying a package from Major League Baseball that provides broadcast of many out of market area games. The package the I purchased last year from MLB via my cable company will only be shown on satellite this year.

Is there a way to send the video and audio signal from my PC to my TV ?


Thanks

You would need the right video card. This will allow you to load up to your TV with video, but not sound. Such as much of the higher up Radeon (ATI) and Nvidia Video cards, you can hook up to your TV through composite (Yellow cable) or and SVideo, but no sound (Unless you have a nice sound card) good luck.

Thanks for the input.

My other problem is the PC and TV are in different rooms. I think I need something like a slingbox.

Well, with a nice enough tv (hdtv), and a nice enough video card (100 bucks), you could rock an hdtv output via component cable. . .Long enough for 50 feet or so if you want someone to wire it for you.

That's what I'm planning on right now, for my newly remodeled basement :thumbsup:

Just get a nice wireless headset for sound?

Well you could get a nice soundcard lol. If your card has a set of composite outs, you could send the sound to the tv lol.

You could purchase a capture card for your computer, connect the cables from your TV to that and record. Else use a DVD recorder and tape directly to there.

Hope that helps!
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

Thanks


The company that makes sling box is coming with a new device call sling catcher. My understanding is this new device will allow me to send PC video to my TV using my home's electrical wiring.

Power System Transmitters

Several products use the electrical wiring of a building to transmit audio signals. These devices tend to pick up 60-cycle hum from the electrical system. This may not be noticeable with noisy rock music, but I dont recommend these products because you can get much better results from a good wireless unit. Power system audio transmitters definitely arent suitable for any type of critical listening.


Don't know if this makes a difference to your video quality or not, just thought I'd mention it.
