Experience streaming danish public service channels

Hi all,

I am in the process of relocating from US to Denmark and will bring my WHS / Sagetv 7 & HD300 extender along.

I was hoping to avoid cable tv providers and stream DK channels (DR1, DR2, TV2 ect) via the internet in realtime, i.e. not just the recorded offerings on their websites....

Has anyone got experience in this regard?

Not impossible... but a lot of work

I have been working on that some time ago, but there is a lot of work involved and since I became a father there is not much time for playing with sagetv extensions.

The problem lies in (at least for DR) the streaming protocol used - RTSP, which is not supported by SageTV out of the box. Building an RTSP plugin for Sage is possible, and I do have a (not completely functional) prototype somewhere, but there were stability issues when running on extenders and I haven't looked at it for months... hmm.. come to think of it, it may be years :-)

I suppose it can be solved given the required effort - that was the case when I built a plugin for shoutcast netradio, and that has been running smoothly for years now - both on SD and HD extenders.

You can find the live shows from DR here:


SageTV 7.1.9 WinXP-32, Headless, 3xUSB HD Tuners, 4GB RAM, 6TB storage, Intel X25 disc for OS and SageTV
Media Extenders: 4 x HD200, 1 x HD300

Why not buy a DVB-T antenna and connect a DVB-T tuner to your sage system. As long as it is only the licensed paid channels you are interested in its free an easy to set-up.

Server: Win7 • SageTV v7.1.9 • GA-MA785GM-US2H • Athlon 64 X2 BE-2350 • 2 Gb RAM • 4x 1Tb WD RE-2 GP in RAID5, Adaptec 5405 Raid controller • 2x firewire DVB-C FloppyDTV C/CI, 1x TechnoTrend CT-3650 CI via the LM Smart DVB Recorder plug-in.

Clients: HD300 to a Samsung PS50C7705 (PN50C8000) via a DVDO Edge • HD200 • Placeshifter

Remote: Universal Remote Control MX-980
