Streaming Digital TV Over A Network:
This guide will walk you through the steps involved with streaming digital tv over a network.
1. A fast network (15mb/s for hdtv, 8mb/s for sdtv, as an absolute minimum)
2. A Digital TV Card with BDA Drivers, or a TwinHan DVB-T Card
1. You must be able to receive DVB-T signals
2. You must live in:
b. United Kingdom
1. Webscheduler ( https://www.videohelp.com/download/WebScheduler220.127.116.11.zip )
3. VLC ( http://www.videolan.org/ )
Please note, that you MUST use the version of Webscheduler I have referenced above.
First, you must install Java, and when you have download and install Webscheduler. Follow the prompts, and when asked choose a port you with to use to access Webscheduler. I highly recommend a firewall to block access to this port from the internet.
When Webscheduler is installed, in your web browser (I use Firefox), type “http://localhost:[Your Port]” without the “” and replace [Your Port] with the port number you setup when you installed Webscheduler. You should see the following screen:
You now need to setup Webscheduler to be able to receive digital tv. Click on the “System Setup” link, then click on “Card Setup” and make sure your card is in the “current card list.” If it is not, make sure you have the BDA drivers installed correctly, or you have the latest TwinHan DTV-T drivers installed (if you have that particular card).
Go back to the Setup page and click on the “Channel Settings” link. Click on “Scan Channels” then Click on your country’s name, then click on your region, then click “Scan All.” After a short amount of time, your tv channels should appear, and click on the check boxes to add them.
Click “Add Selected” at the bottom of that page, and then return to the setup page.
Click on “Server Config” and then enter the following information:
Replace [Your IP Address] with your computer’s IP address, which can be found in Windows XP by navigating to the control panel, and then switch to classic view, and then click on “Network Connections.” Click on your network card you use to access the network, and your IP address will appear on the left column:
When you have entered your IP address, click on “Update.”
Click Home and you now have Webscheduler set up correctly.
Open VLC, and click on the open button (), than click on the “Network” tab. Click on “UDP/RTP Multicast” and enter “18.104.22.168” into the Address bar, and leave the port number at “1234,” then click OK. VLC Should look like this:
Next, go to the home page of Webscheduler and click on “Schedule List,” and then click on “Add New Schedule.” The current date should be highlighted, so click on that. You now need to enter the details of the ‘dry recording’ (as I call it), so enter the current time, and enter a suitable duration for which you wish to have the stream active. You don’t need to enter a name. Next, select your channel, and then in the Capture type box, click on “View Only,” and then select “DSNetwork TS Enabled” in the View Options box. Your screen should look something like this:
You should now have the “Timer Controll” page in front of you. Click refresh once the ‘dry recording’ has started. Your screen should now look like this:
You need to click on the Computer icons to activate the stream. They should light up to show an active stream ().
VLC should start playing your stream a few seconds after you have clicked on the computers, and it should look something like this:
Enjoy, I will update if there are any issues.

Webschuduler (the version you stated above):
I got this working well for dvb video stream over lan however i can only get sound on 1 channel (BBC NEWS 24) here in the UK. This channel has only 1 entry for MP2.Audio : 282
The other channels ALL have TWO entries for MP2.Audio
Channel : BBC2
Frequency : 634000
Bandwidth : 8
Program : 4284
Teletext : 225
Video : 221
AC3.Audio : 0
Although I can manually enter one of these settings neither will work on its own.
I really want to get audio on BBC1 and Scottish TV working in time for the world cup games starting from mon 12 june. (In order to stream the live stream to my workmates on the LAN).
If I cant get Audio working - I will stream the video and we can get commentary from radio
Any help or suggestions appreciated.
I have the almost the same problem, but I get no sound completely. I have read elsewhere that I should take the Line Out from my TV card and connect it to the Line In of my sound card. I can see that that might work, but why does it work that way?
Like others whose messages I have read on this forum, I found I had video but no audio when I tried to stream the output from my DVB-T card over my local network. I resolved this by NOT using DVB Web Scheduler. I don't know if it will work for everyone but here's how I did it.
I started my WinTV application (WinTV2000) in the normal way and selected Record to create an MPEG file on my hard disk. With the recording still running (i.e. WinTV was still writing to the MPEG file) I opened VLC Media Player and set it up to stream the same MPEG file over UDP22.214.171.124. Picture and sound are both near perfect and there is no noticeable lag between video and audio
So even though the file is still being written too by the WIN TV application, VLC has the capability to read from it.
Give it a go - what have you got to lose
for those that have the saem problem with the DSNIP1 etc., I found you have to start a streaming recording and then the entries appear in the server config screen. After that all seems okay.
But I don't get sound on the streaming !

Thanks redion. I updated the https://www.videohelp.com/download/WebScheduler126.96.36.199.zip with the installation version. ( And checked so it doesn't contain any virus, http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/bc6bfda8ca1c89b79ffc1f2a9728ee4e9d7c6fd78364c5de7e6...e16-1266328441 )
I have few DVB TS files.
Can any one tell me, how can i stream/multicast it over my LAN for my testing purpose.
I believe VLC doesn't support streaming of DVB ts file, it will stream only one channel/pes no SDT, no EIT or original ts format .
dvblast, dvbstream works with only DVB Cards, not with files.
So can any one suggest good streaming tool.
Thanks in Advance
Hi, Everything works for me, i have one problem: No "Add" check in box in scan results window...
Maybe anyone can help?
I tried all, Chrome, Explorer and Firefox...
New on this forum. I am interested on streaming TV, video over lan. I see that my country is not listed on the "requirements list" , could you tell me why this is "restricted" to those on the list?
I am in El Salvador, Central America.
Webscheduler, which no longer exists under that name. (Remember, the requirements date from 2006.) El Salvador uses ATSC for terrestrial digital TV, not DVB-T. Sometimes that determines TV software choices. Software for DVB-T tuners often uses guide data carried in the broadcast, which is not provided in exactly the same way for ATSC broadcasts.
