    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for a bit of software (price=free if poss) which, TBH, I'd be surprised if it existed. Just wishful thinking I 'spose

    I have an XP PC which I'm using as a media center, now I have some capturing software which I use to stream footage from my Sky+ on to DVD, but what I was after was a little widget that would open a small window on my desktop so that I could have the Sky feed playing while I, for example, surfed the web. Kind of like picture in picture. I don't want it to record, just play a live feed. Any ideas would be super.

    Cheers.

    Quite a number of the video/TV cards do that. Don't know of software that will do it.

    Any idea which cards and how you do it? I have a ATI X700 VIVO on this PC. I'll have a look on the disk, see if something came with it.

    Thanks.

    Well I couldn't find anythng on Konfabulator, but I have found Multimedia Center on the ATI webby which seems to have the function I'm after. It's just I'm having a spot of bother getting it to work at the moment...

    Yeah, I'd get one of those too if we could get a freeview signal at all. No cable either. :( As it is, I have to remain a whore of the Dirty Digger. :cry: Still, that being said, Sky+ is the muts nuts

    Woo hoo! Turns out I was sitting on something that does the job all along. A tool that comes with Pinnacle Studio 9 that is just a preview/capture window. Play the live feed without capturing and Roibert's your Mother's brother!
