How tubeCore Works

Getting Internet TV shows onto your TV is easy. All you need is a Windows Vista computer. Add a remote control for the very best experience.

Your Windows Vista computer has powerful built-in software for watching TV. That software is called Windows Media Center. Windows Media Center does everything a TIVO does, everything your cable television box does, AND makes Internet TV available (using tubeCore). You just have to make the connection to your TV!

And that is much easier than you think.

There are two ways to connect your Windows Vista Computer to your TV: DIRECT or using an EXTENDER.

If you have an Xbox 360 console, you already have an EXTENDER. The Xbox 360 comes pre-configured to connect directly to your Windows Vista computer as a Media Center Extender, and displays Windows Media Center right on your TV. Just turn on your Xbox 360 and find the “Media Center Connection”. From there you’re only a few steps away from watching all of your favorite TVs without cable!

To connect your computer DIRECT to your TV you simply need the right kind of connector cable. This website will tell you exactly how to connect your computer to your TV.

tubeCore is a Windows Media Center application plugin that functions as a DLNA Media Receiver. tubeCore will play video from any DLNA compliant Media Server such as Tversity, PlayOn, and Twonky Media.
