I just wants some guidance as i am a noob when it comes to streaming stuff.

I have a TBS6925 card and i would like to stream all channels on Astra 28.2E on my local LAN so i can watch the channels on all my computers, i don't need to watch on two computers at the same time but it's important all channels are available in the network by just choosing the correct stream with VLC for an example.

Also i have a dedicated server running Oscam on Linux.

Is this even possible? my computer running the TBS6925 card is a Core i7-3930K which got six cores and 32GB RAM.

Streaming to VLC, you can only watch the channels of a single multiplex that you have scanned in with your pc card, then use Crazyscan or TBS Recorder to stream to VLC. You would need a bouquet of channels for all of 28E as you can have with streaming from a Dreambox or similar receiver - I don't know of anything like that for the TBS6925, may be wrong though.

I believe you need something like the DVBViewer Recording Service (which incidentally is not only for recordings!:D)

_http://en.dvbviewer.tv/wiki/DVBViewer_Recording_Service

  • It is based on DVBViewer Technology, all DVB devices working in the DVBViewer also work with the service (Exception: Unicast/Multicast Network devices).

  • All settings of the Recording Service can be done in the Service Configuration Program, which can be started with the right click popup menu of the tray icon in the system tray. While the configuration program is running the Recording Service will be stopped! If there are active recording you will get a warning and the option to cancel the configuration. Some setting can be done with the Recording Service running by using the Webinterface.

  • It has a web interface with extensive possibilities to browse the EPG, program timers (via EPG), manage recordings and search in the EPG. From your local network as well as the internet.

  • The recording engine is the same as used in the DVBViewer Pro. The parental control PIN if needed for recording has to be put into the svcuserdata.xml file.

  • It can stream live TV and recordings into the LAN or internet through the webinterface, either native or transcoded (with the help of VLC Player). These streams can be played with VLC, MPC and WMP.

  • It contains a UPnP/DLNA AV server which can stream live TV, recordings, video, music or image files to UPnP/DLNA devices (Samsung TV, Sony PS3 etc.) or programs (xbmc).

  • The Recording Service uses a Media library for the UPnP/DNLA server, which searches in defined time spans for new or changed media files and checks the myMovies and mySeries databases for additional informations about the files. Ofcourse it can handle also ID3 tags of music files and EXIF data of photos.

  • It can stream live TV or recordings to the iPhοne, iPοd Touch and iΡad.

  • It has a special web interface for the iPhοne, iPοd Tοuch and iΡad.

  • It can be a DVBServer for DVBViewer Pro. DVBViewer can show the EPG, manage timers and recordings of the Recording Service and add new timers.

  • It can stream Live TV to the Popcorn Hour.

  • Client/Server with DVBViewer Pro installations: the DVBViewer can use and show the EPG, add/modify Timers and control recordings of the Recording Service.

  • The Recording Service uses a more sophisticated timer concept than the DVBViewer. I.E. there are auto search timers which search the EPG for defined keywords and create recording timers out of the results. And timer can have a priority so an timer marked with a higher priority can stop a timer with a lower priority, if there aren't enough hardware resources.

  • The automatc EPG Update keeps ypur EPG up to date if there is a free DVB device it can use. It regularly collects the EPG of all transponders and can also process MediaHighway or FreeSat EPG.

I do multiple things with Recording Service I can stream to other computers, to a Samsung TV, PS3, my android tablet and my radio, and remote access to my videos recoded and live on the fly in flash which is fantastic.

Not being funny but the 6925 seems a little under used just to stream 28.2E.

I noticed it's for DVBViewer, i don't use it as i don't like it

Still it only streams one stream at a time, maybe Windows Server 2008 got some nice multiple streaming built-in.

You can't stream more than one stream at a time (a whole transponder transport stream) with the 6925. To do that you need more than one dvb card, or a dvb card with 2 or 4 tuners (like the TBS6984), and most likely a twin or quad LNB. DVBViewer Recording Service requires the DVBViewer Pro to be installed, but does not depend on it to work. It's an independent windows service....

So i need one tuner for each channel or MUX?

But i read somewhere you can create virtual tuners and have unlimited streams, don't remember where i read it.
