Hi. I have a tv tuner card in my pc which I would like to use to stream satellite channels over IP. I laso have Flash media streaming server installed on another station. I would like to know how I can get a specific channel from this tuner and stream it to FMS so it can broadcast it over the internet. My tuner card came with DVB Viewer application. This application has a netstream option, but it cannot stream to FMS. I am unsure of how to do this or what is required in between these two to get the stream out on the internet. I would appreciate someones guidance with this. Thanks.

Software/Hardware used:
Flash Media Steaming server, TV Tuner, DVB Viewer

Thanks Ben. Anyway, I found a solution. Here’s how:

I used the NetStream plugin in DVB Viewer to stream to VLC. I streamed this incoming DVBV stream using RTSP and at the same time transcoding it to H.264 + AAC to an application called xSplit. xSplit can then take this incoming VLC stream and stream it to Flash Media Server using RTMP.
So it went like this: DVBViewer -> VLC -> xSplit -> FMS
Hope this helps someone in the future.
