Ethernet and the internet
If you have a home network, especially one based around a router (into which all your computers are plugged, which in turn connects to the internet), then you can enter the world of media streaming. This can work both ways.
Using the facilities in the freeware program Winamp, you can easily create a ‘playlist’ that the TViX 5130 or 4130 PVRs can use to access internet radio stations.
With a TViX PVR, music, videos, internet radio, photos and other computer files can be delivered to your home entertainment system.
The stations available are those that use the SHOUTcast format, which means that there are many thousands of these stations you can listen to. Imagine your home entertainment system no longer being limited to the dozen or so radio stations in your local area, but being able to tune into a foreign news service, or a US country music station, or a Middle Eastern broadcast!
