Xtreamer Support System



How do I install TVersity and connect it to Xtreamer



Folowing these simple steps will allow you to watch on your xtreamer an enormous amount of live videos, live TV channels and thousands of Video casts on both HD and SD quality.

In order to utlize your xtreamer to enjoy this wealth of content on demand, you will require :

(1) Your xtreamer to be connected to the router via wired cable (later when the wireless connectivity and speed will be improved you will be able to use it over wifi)
(2) Your Xtreamer UPnP to be setup to ON on the setting menu
(3) Your Xtreamer to be properly connected to your local home network so your PC and its shared folders will be visible to the device.
(4) To install successfully TVersity PRO edition on your PC (XP or Vista)

You will need an internet connection with sufficient bandwidth. some hulu or other videos stream at 480Kbps or 700Kbps, . For ptimal smooth stream we recommend a downstream bandwidth of 1,000Kbps or higher for the smoothest playback experience.

You can test your downstream bandwidth at http://www.speedtest.net. Once there, click on the yellow pyramid on the map (if none of the pyramids are yellow, select one that is closest to your geographic location). This will initiate a speed test. Once complete, your downstream bandwidth is displayed in the "Download" box near the top of your screen.

Few words about Tversity :
======================================================================================================
Quote:
The TVersity Media Server lets you manage your Internet and home media and create your personalized lineup of channels, or as we call it your Personal Entertainment Guide (PEG). It then serves this media to a multitude of networked devices in the home or on the go, overcoming their inherent limitations by doing all the necessary conversions on the fly, and thus making your media available anywhere, anytime and on any device. It comes in two editions, a basic edition available for free and supported via user donations and a pro edition available for a small fee.


If you dont have it installed on your pc - go to this link and register and download the PRO edition.

http://tversity.com/pro/

The difference is that the pro edition will allow you to be registered to lineup of channels that are available only in the pro edition. The Free version will allow you to share only local files or manually add streams without this ability.
