The Ephemeral between existance and non-existance: AKA "being"

Favourite OS
Rhapsody, BeOS
I need to stream some stuff from TV cables to a couple of computers on a lan and possibly a website.

I was thinking of buying the server, (which I found for about 100 USD :D ) - I am interested if its a good investment and if there is any other way to do what I am trying to do...

Furthermore, I am interested with your experience with the streaming server...

The Windows Media Encoder is pretty good for basic streaming, it's relatively user-friendly if you just want to stream stuff, but it has lots of other options as well.

You can also stream video from a capture device with VLC but I'm not sure how well it works, i haven't really tried it.

Streaming from VLC works great, though some of the settings have to be just right because certain combinations just don't seem to work... other than that though, it's perfect.
