How about Netflix or maybe a ball game? What's your objective here; save money, keep in touch with home news, etc.?
I don't know how to title this thread, or where to put, so I'll just put it in general to see if it gets bites.
Anyway, hypothetical situation...
I own a house here in the United States, and I own a place in germany as well. In germany I subscribe to their sky satellite package (similar to our DirecTV), and it gives me full HD movies, tv shows, and sports, and whatnot.
Could I leave my satellite receiver box on, and somehow connect it through a PC or something, where when I'm in the United States, I can use a PC I have in the United States to access that remote PC in Germany and in turn access my satellite subscription package? With that, could I make it so it's in clear HD as well?
German HD Satellite Box>German Computer>American Computer>American HDTV. Would that work?
If so, how would you do it? Could I maybe invest in my own Server, or have some sort of secret portal through the web. Would there be a way to change channels?
