Streaming receiver box

Postby Davidf » Fri May 04, 2012 8:26 pm

Instead of using a laptop or iPhone/iPad to watch media over remote potato, I am interested in having a dedicated small streaming box that will connect to the internet and stream my recorded content from home. I'm thinking of a device like WD TV Live or apple TV. A device that has wifi built in and I could go plug it into my hotel room and effortlessly access remote potato.

I think this would require two tings, a device and an app. I don't think you can install apps on apple TV, but maybe if it was jailbroken? Does anyone know if this is possible?

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Davidf.
I am sorry but Remote Potato won't help you much in this case.

But a jailbroken Apple tv will give you the possibility to install Xbmc or Plex. See firecore.com
I think plex is the solution for you.
You will need to install a Plex Media Server on your media center computer or your server at home.
