Streaming of live TV
Remote Potato to run as a Windows service.


Awesome app, Carlos.

The Windows service is huge for me. I have a dedicated 7MC box in a closet that is purely a media server that I rarely log into and would love this to run as a service, even better, one that can run somewhere else and just pulls the data from the MC box. I develop .NET based solutions for a living and would love to help with this.

Thanks for that, much appreciated.

As this is definitely a medium/long-term one, leave it with me for now as it could be a fair while until this rises to the top of the list.
