I created this thread for tips, advice and discussion for streaming Media content to our TouchPads and webOS devices. The content of this thread should consist of links to products, websites and tips to provide live and recorded media to our devices. We know Slingbox has never come through, but there has to be alternatives and advice to watch TV, movies and other content on the TP so let's consolidate REAL ADVICE in one place. Please keep this thread as such and keep opinions elsewhere. List your product, device compatibility and content here.
I will begin with my own advice which is:
Kalemsoft Media Player (all devices) which plays recorded files from your PC: http://www.kalemsoft.com/site/
Splashtop remote Desktop App (Pre 2 and below; TP app pending) which allows access to Slingbox and other flashbased content such as full access to Sirius XM (previously unavailable on Pre 2 and below): http://www.splashtop.com/ You have to set up port forwarding for it to work via 3G. You can sign up for an email when they release it for the TouchPad here: http://signup.splashtop.com/3sj5j

I too would like to use my Slingbox with my Palm/HP devices but got sick of waiting. I went ahead and picked up a Hauppauge Broadway which was just released here in the US. I'm happy to report that it works great with my HP Touchpad and Palm Pre 2. When streaming to your device just type in the direct URL to the Broadway's LiveTV user interface (ex...http://192.168.X.X/TVC/ui/LiveTV.html) otherwise it will tell you that your browser is too old which isn't the case. Just remember this when you get it
