Hey all, I just wanted to share some information that I came across over the weekend.

There is a site called Orb which allows you to sync everything from your home computer to any wireless device or computer.

The awesome part of it is that if you have a TV Tuner Card for your computer which allows you to watch live TV on your PC or Mac, then you can watch that live streaming feed on your Blackberry or whatever mobile phone you use. I personally have an 8330 Curve. The picture is very clear too. Amazing.

It took a little messing around, but it works great. Even changes channels through your IR Blaster that should already be hooked to your computer. Yesterday while I was in a golf tourney, I watched the Saints-Giants game and then the start of the Pats-Titans game with no issue at all.

PM me if you have any questions for setup on the 8330. At first all I got was a small screen, but eventually I figured out all of the settings to display full screen.

As far as I know, it works on all of them. It isn't an app. All you have to do is browse the the site, log in and it will connect to your computer. You can also access all of your music, pictures and files too.

I doubt it works on Blackberrys that can't play video.

Yeah, that's where I originally found out about it and then kind of stumbled upon the TV part of it on accident.

I know every where I've read about streaming Sirius is that you used a program called uSirius and I can't find anywhere to download that anymore.

I tried Orb a year or two ago to stream video to my Wii. It was buggy back then, so I haven't looked at it since.

I'm using it to stream TV to my Storm. I had a difficult time getting it to work with 64-bit Windows 7 but now I've got it going. It comes in handy when I want to show friends or family our home videos or pictures too.
