it can be done, but its a very longwinded affair to do it, if you have a normal PC, its possible,

You need VLC on the PC, download TVERSITY also

Firstly, you will need to download VLC

Create a desktop shortcut for VLC, then right click and then click on Properties. Change the target field to this (include the speech marks):

"C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" -vvv http://127.0.0.1:8902/tv.asf --sout "#std{access=mmsh,mux=asfh,dst=:1234}"

Now open up Sopcast as usual and go to the channel that you want to watch.

Open up Tversity and add a new Video URL and enter: mms://127.0.0.1:1234

Open up VLC using your desktop Icon

Now, switch on your Xbox, go to the media tab, Videos, and then select your Tversity Server. Click Internet Videos and find the new URL you have added, wait for it to Buffer and there you go. You can now watch your Sopcast Broadcast on your TV and someone else can use the PC.
