David was talking about live broadcasting at CES as a possibility, would Twitch TV be any good for that?
Has Surface Geeks ever used Twitch TV?
My buddy and I are in a debate that there has to be another option that makes life easier, that includes getting rid of his old media center. He swears that there is nothing out there that will decrypt cable streams other that a IE tivo or TWC box. I know somebody somewhere has got this beast conquered. Any help would be much appreciated.

I am planning to build a small computer to handle TV-related tasks, including:
• Receive tv-signals (four external usb-cards)
• Distribute cards (with DVB-link) – 2-4 TV:s and up to 3-mobile units
• Record tv
• Clean out commercials
The capacity of the computer should be such as it can do all these tasks at the same time
Ideas and pre-requisites
• Placed in cupboard so it has to run cool – but also quiet (prefer fan less, but ultra quiet is acceptable)
• SSD for system drive
• Small/slim form factor
• Second/storage HDD can be external (usb 3.0)
• Headless and remotely managed
Any suggestions on HW and SW appreciated
I've been getting frustrated with ZumoCast for the iPad and Windows ever since Motorola bought it. They are obviously working on Android more than iOS now which is understood but still a letdown.
With Zumo I could browse my DVD directory and my converted TV shows directory and transfer files to the iPad over Wi-Fi without having to sync with iTunes.
I used to use Air Video but the service fails to start now for some reason. Un-install, reinstall it starts but on reboots it fails.
Boxee for iPad was disappointing. Have not tried Orb yet.
I thought I would throw it out there to you guys and see what you use.
Orb, PolKast, ZumoCast, Air Video. iOS, Android, WebOS, whatever. Stream, transfer, watch live.
