Problem: My problem is not in this list.
Solution: Start using Internet Explorer.

Only like, two of the channels worked. :(

Pretty cool, every channel I've tried works. I haven't checked the porn though, probably some kinda catch there. The backyard wrestling channel works well *giggle*

Is it just me or does old school porn just not cut it anymore?

My Favorite is "Lost Productivity TV". It features webcam footage of people watching all the other channels.

It looks like they're doing Professor Moriarty on Movies -> Mystery Channel right now. The SF channel is good/bad, too.

If you have Xbox Media Center (XBMC), there are scripts to allow over 250-300 TV domestic and world stations to stream right there in your living room. Definitely an option for the home tinkerer.

There's a lot of good streaming sites on the net, though. WWITV being among the best.

I think the FPP needs editing. I'd suggest we change it to:

"Choose and Watch. Television stations streaming quite difficultly to your computer. (especially if you're not using IE on Windows)"

It works fine for me with FireFox, but then I have only watched the news channels (yay BBC!).

So far so good... 400 KB/sec. Not brave enough to try the porn channels, though.

I opened up one and agree with Paxton.

Sometimes it just seems like....Sex in the vein of Ultimate Fighting -- with some guy "hammering" away on some grimacing glossy chick - Yawwwn.
